In what may be termed as the deepest cut of all, the Rivers State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated Plateau State Governor, Jonah Jang, in his victory as the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) Chairman. The state chapter declared that they recognize Jang and not Rotimi Amaechi, the Rivers State Governor, as the authentic NGF Chairman.
In a statement by the state PDP’s Publicty Secretary, Mr. Nwanosike Samuel, the PDP said “Amaechi did not win, Amaechi is an Agent of destruction working against the agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan’s Transformation Agenda and beside election was not concluded he went outside to address Press, that is a criminal act, Amaechi cannot come out and say he is the Chairman, the right Chairman is Jonah Jang, the authentic Chairman is Jonah Jang”.
Speaking further Mr. Nwanosike said “I don’t understand where Amaechi and his cohorts got the result they announced from, infact when I listened to 9oclock NTA news yesterday I saw it play out clearly, the position of NGF led by Jonah Jang, it is obvious that the 19 Governors signed declaring Jonah Jang as their leader so I don’t understand where that. Result came from, that goes to show what we have been suffering Rivers State and also goes to show the impunity ”.
Already, Mr. Jang has held an inaugural meeting of the NGF under his chairmanship which had in attendance 18 governors.
