Jonathan Fixes Emergency Dinner For Governors To Clash With Amaechi’s NGF Meeting
There seems to be no letting down in the quest by President Goodluck Jonathan to deal a fatal blow to Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, especially as it concerns the leadership of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) which Amaechi and his Plateau State counterpart, Jonah Jang are laying claims to.
Amaechi had in the May 24 election of the NGF emerged Chairman of the forum with 19 votes against his rival, Jonah Jang’s 16 votes, but since that election, the Governor Jang has been laying claims to the leadership of the forum with Support from Mr President.
In what is termed as his first major move since his election as Chairman of the Forum, Governor Amaechi called for a meeting of the forum for 8pm local time on Wednesday with invitations sent to all the governors including those opposed to his leadership of the NGF, but just few hours after the notice of meeting to all the 36 state governors were delivered, the presidency was said to have summoned an emergency dinner meeting of all the governors at the presidential villa same 8pm on Wednesday.
Abusidiqu.com gathered that the dinner meeting called by Jonathan is meant to frustrate the meeting of the authentic NGF governors but many of them are however said to be resolute not to betray their support for Amaechi in the face of the presidency gimmicks.
