Amaechi Dares PDP, Jang, Calls NGF Meeting

gov_rotimii_amaechiIn a daring move, the Governor of Rivers State and factional Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum, NGF, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, has called for a meeting of the forum for Wednesday.

The invitation to the meeting scheduled, for 8pm on Wednesday at the Rivers State Governors Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja, was signed by Chidinma Onyenalim, an aide to Amaechi.

The meeting would the first to be called by Amaechi since his disputed re-election on May 24.

Both Amaechi and Plateau Governor, Jonah Jang, lead separate factions of the NGF, having both claimed victory in the May 24 election.

Amaechi and his supporters claim he polled 19 votes against Jang’s 16.

As fallout of the disputed election, Amaechi was suspended by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
