The Nigeria Governors Forum under the leadership of Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau state has told Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State
that the reconciliation of the governors under one umbrella can only start with the recognition of Gov. Jang as Chairman of the Nigeria
In a statement released in Abuja and signed by the Sole Administrator of the Forum, Earl Osaro Onaiwu, the governors stated that while they
understand the lamentation of Governor Amaechi on the crack amongst the governors, they however reminded him that there would be no such
fracture if Amaechi and his factional colleagues had adhered to the nomination of Governor Jang at the Northern Governors Forum which was
duly accepted by the PDP Governors Forum before the ill fated election.
The statement further advised Governor Amaechi to seek the truth of how Governor Jang emerged as the consensus choice of the Northern
governors and he will find out that the deceit and the betrayal of trust amongst the governors was at the bottom of the fracture and that
only a return to the original agreement can heal the fracture.
The governors under the leadership of Governor Jang added they were not surprised at Amaechi’s disappointment as he presently presides
over an opposition Governors Forum, a leadership they said he inadvertently shares with Owelle Rochas Okorocha of Imo state who is
the Chairman of the All Progressives Governors Forum by virtue of the fact that all the governors under Amaechi’s leadership all belong to
the All Progressives Congres
