Is Friday’s election the last time Nigerians will ever see a united Nigeria Governors Forum? Has the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, backed by the Presidency succeeded in sounding the death knell of the all-poweful and ‘confrontational’ Governors Forum?
Anyone who can read the writing on the wall should know the crack in the NGF and emergence of a factional chairman is the beginning of the end for a Forum that has been described as ‘unconstitutional’ and constituting itself as a ‘trade union’ opposing the Federal Government at every opportunity.
However, a Governor at the election has dismissed the purported cracks in the Forum saying the pro-Amaechi forces suspected from the outset that the other side was up to some mischief.
His words: “Some of us had a premonition that some anti-Amaechi governors might be desperate and we decided to video tape the election process.
“Now, we are vindicated as they are crying over spilled milk. Nigerians should ask them why they refused to address the press after the election at the Rivers State Governor’s Lodge?
“The so-called list released by Governor Godswill Akpabio is strange and extraneous in order to scuttle Amaechi’s mandate.
“It is laughable that they even included the name of Yobe State Governor, Ibrahim Geidam, who was not in Abuja to vote, in their list. This has shown how desperate they have become.
“What they released was the list of the governors who signed to vote for the anointed candidate of the presidency who eventually did not contest.
“They could not even be smart. Collection of signatures is different from actual voting. They coerced some governors to sign but these governors ended up voting according to their conscience.
Responding to a question, the governor added: “We stand by the mandate which has been hardly won by Governor Amaechi.”
Why were you not bold enough to disclose your identity or should I call you a coward.
Oga Jona,sir,Pa Tukur Pa Anenin Apabio Pa clerk orubebe all dokubo’s=16,AMAECHI=19,D4 16-19=-2,ITS implies,all ur sojers is still less dan amaechi.advice,4 2015 2 b ok!u need Amaechi,rosolve and discard less value variables.
It is called “strategy”.
Let the people like Akpabio bury his head in shame as he is one of the evil forces that are mis advising Uncle Jonathan because he cant match amaechi in term of test and proven integrity. Akpabio lies lot
