Jang’s Faction of NGF is a Faction of PDP Governors Forum – Ameachi
Rivers State Governor, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi who is leading a faction of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum has said that his Plateau state counterpart who is also leaying claims to the leadership of the forum is leading a faction of the PDP Governors Forum.
The Governor who spoke in Abuja at a symposium on constitution review organised by the Rule of Law Development Foundation said most of the governors who voted for him are in the PDP, meaning that the PDP Governors Forum has a faction lead by Governor Jang.
He described Gov. Jonah Jang and those supporting him as undemocratic.
“Everybody voted including Jang. Jang was among the first person to vote. And when I won, they were there when I won. So anyone, including any member of the NBA who supports Jang is undemocratic, ” Amaechi said.
He stated that what the Plateau state governor is leading is “a faction of the PDP governor’s forum”.
The Governors also took a swipe at the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), saying the Body has lost its voice.
He wondered how the NBA will call for the dissolution of the NGF simply because some people refused to accept the result of an election that was free and fair.
He also called on Nigerians to be “prepared as a people to defend our rights, hold government accountable and demand accountability”.
