Amaechi's NGF Is Extension Of APC-Jang


Chairman of the Nigeria Governors' Forum, Dr. Jonah Jang of Plateau state

has called on Nigerians to ignore statements by Governor Rotimi Amaechi's

group of governors, describing them as reading from the script prepared by

the APC.
In a statement released in Abuja by the NGF media office and signed by

Kassim Yakubu, Governor Jang berated the Amaechi led group for playing

politics with the suspension of the CBN governor by President Goodluck

Jonathan noting that Nigerians have grown weary of Governor Amaechi

turning every issue even beyond his purvey into a political opportunity.

He reiterated that Governor Amaechi does not speak on behalf of the

governors in the country as according to him a vast majority of governors

do not share in the anti federal government zeal that the Rivers state

governor champions as evident in the ever reducing number of governors he

“Nigerians want governors to perform their primary functions of running

their states and not this obsession with President Jonathan by governor

Amaechi and his cohorts. My advice to them is Nigerians and history will

decide if President Jonathan has performed as President. This lowly

behaviour will not win them an election” he stated.

Governor Jang sent his sympathies to the parents of the school children

killed by the Boko Haram extremists in Yobe state and called on the

security forces not to relent in their effort to fish out the evil

perpetrators of the heinous act.
He also sent condolences to Governor Mimiko of Ondo state and the people

of the state at the death of the speaker of the House of Assembly, Sam

Adesina who passed away in a Lagos hospital.
