Acclaimed winner of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) election Mr. Rotimi Amaechi has summoned all governors to an inaugural meeting in Abuja on Wednesday. In a press statement signed by Chidinma Onyenalim, the governor said the meeting would hold at 8 PM at the Rivers State Governor’s Lodge in the Federal Capital Territory.
“There will be a meeting of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) on Wednesday 26th June, 2013. Time: 8.00pm prompt. Venue: Rivers State Governor’s Lodge, No. 5 Justice Mohammed Bello Street, Asokoro, Abuja,” the governor said in the brief statement. Amaechi defeated his counterpart, Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State to emerge chairman of the NGF.
But his election has further polarised the union making some of the governors to pitch their tenth with Jang who was endorsed by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) prior to the election.
But the governor had vowed never to give up his mandate.
