There was a new twist to the outcome of the re-election of Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as the chairman of Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) on Friday as four of his colleagues contesting his victory visited the Vice President Muhammad Namadi Sambo at the State House, Abuja on Saturday evening.
Led by the chairman of the splinter Peoples Democratic Party-Governors Forum (PDP-GF), Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom, Jonah Jang of Plateau and Isa Yuguda of Bauchi, along with Garba Umar, the acting governor of Taraba State met Sambo in private.
The meeting came hours after the Presidency, through the President's spokesperson; Dr Reuben Abati dissociated his boss from the NGF election and its subsequent fallout.
