Intrigues As 36 Governors Meet In Abuja Today

Written By Joseph Y. Musa on Wednesday, April 24, 2013 | 4/24/2013 09:49:00 am

The 36 Governors, under the aegis of Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) would meet today in Abuja to discussed issues that
border on what they termed the illegaldeductions by thepresidency from the excess crude account.
Other issues include the state of security in the country for which a panel was raised as well as the surge in polio scourge.
But, while the intrigues over the chairmanship position of the forum involving the current chairman and Rivers State Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and the presidency persisted, KURAMO gathered that the election was not slated for tomorrow.
Amaechi, who intended to seek re- election as chairman of the forum, riled thepresidency over his speculated presidential ambition in 2015.
Nonetheless, today’s meeting which comes after last Sunday’s alleged meeting between President Jonathan and some select PDP governors at the presidential villa, would be sequel to the PDP governors meeting to be hosted by its chairman and governor of Akwa Ibom State,
Godswill Akpabio.
KURAMO however confirmed that the meeting between Jonathan and some of the governors was to adopt a common front in the forth coming election on the chairman of the Forum.
KURAMO also learnt that the presidency has not relented in its moves to ensure that Amaechi did not return as chairman of the forum.
Sources told our reporter that the string of activities in recent times, from the emergence of Governor Akpabio as PDP Governors Forum Chairman, the sacking of the Rivers state chapter of the PDP executive loyal to Amaechi serve as pointers to moves to ensure he did not return as governor.
However, feelers indicate that Amaechi enjoys the support of some PDP governors and most of the opposition governors.
