NGF: Fayose disagrees with Yari's choice

22 May 2015, 16:05

Ekiti - Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has faulted the process that saw Zamafara State Governor, Abdualziz Yari, emerged as the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum, Punch reports.

Fayose, a member of the forum said the process of producing the new leader for the forum was wrong as it excluded the governors-elect, who would constitute the majority members of the group after their inauguration on May 29.

This is coming as the Jonah Jang-led faction, on Thursday, disowned the forum’s peace meeting that took place on Monday.

 Fayose likened the decision among the incumbent governors, led by Amaechi to choose Yari as the chairman, to a situation where outgoing senators would elect a Senate President for the incoming members.

He urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) not to be afraid of losing the seat of the NGF chairman as it has the majority in the forum.
