has called on Nigerians to ignore statements by Governor Rotimi Amaechi's
group of governors, describing them as reading from the script prepared by
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.
