Governors meet under enlarged forum

Outgoing governors, re-elected ones and their incoming colleagues yesterday met in Abuja under an enlarged forum.

It was the first time the governors would be meeting in their numbers after the May 2013 disputed election of the Nigeria Governors Forum where the Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers) and Jonah Jang (Plateau) factions emerged.

The meeting, which insiders said was a reconciliatory move by the governors, started at 8.30 pm at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel.

Present at the meeting were governors of Rivers, Delta, Niger, Zamfara, Edo, Kwara, Osun, Kaduna, Borno, Kebbi, Akwa Ibom, Bauchi, Benue and Oyo.

Others were Deputy Governors of Nasarawa, Imo and Kogi States and the Governor-Elect of Kano State.
The meeting was still ongoing as at the time of filing this report at 10.05 pm.
