Gov. Jang's Nigeria Governors Forum denies reconciliation with Gov. Amaechi-led forum

The Nigeria Governors Forum under the leadership of Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau state has denied any reconciliation with the Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State-led Forum.

In a statement released in Abuja and signed by the Secretary and Administrator of the Forum, Osaro Onaiwu, the governors stated that any such reconciliation attempt was futile as a majority of the governors will be out of office in a matter of days and therefore should leave issues of reconciliation, reorganization and a new Chairman to the incoming governors.

The statement further described the purported reconciliation as a selfish attempt by a group of governors to force new leadership of the forum on the in-coming governors.

The governors noted that both the Chairman, Jonah Jang and his Deputy, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo state along with the majority of governors were visibly absent because they did not consider it a priority at this late hour to be part of a selfish project.
