By The Citizen

The factional chairman of the Nigerian Governors' Forum (NGF) and Governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang has declared Governor Chibuke Amaechi as the Chairman of the Opposition Governors' Forum.

Jang said that the description was apt for Amaechi as the Rivers State Governor was working with opposition elements against the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-led Federal Government.

In a statement in Abuja, yesterday, Governor Jang described Governor Amaechi as Chairman of the Opposition Governors' Forum.

Jang statement was sequel to the declaration by the Presidency that it only recognized the Jang-led faction of the forum.

The Plateau State governor asserted that the NGF was originally formed for peer review among the states and to provide needed social and economic elevation to the Nigerian people, he said: 'Instead, Governor Amaechi has turned his team into an opposition group. They are now obsessed with the presidency and the Federal Government.

'Even the recent retreat they had, turned out to be like an anger management conference to vent against the Presidency and the Federal Government.'
