Jonah Jang apologises to Nigerians

29 May 2013, 08:28Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) chairman Jonah Jang, has apologized to the nation for the election that brought him into office.

Jang, who is also Governor of Plateau State, assured the public that the organisation was working on a structure for efficiently choosing its leadership.

Among these measures would be to restrict the leaders to a single term, as guided by its original constitution.

Receiving Yusuf Ayitogo, Vice Chairman (North Central Zone) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), who led the executive council on a solidarity visit to him over his election, Jang stressed that under his leadership, corrections will be made while efforts will be intensified in the reconciliation process.

He restated the commitment of the Governors to cooperate with President Goodluck Jonathan for the development and growth of democracy in Nigeria.

Ayitogo, who affirmed the Executive Council’s belief in the ability of Jang to stir the NGF towards realizing its aim in Nigeria, described Jang’s election as “a victory for the North Central Zone and the northern parts of the country.”

Recently, NGF broke into two factions after chaotic elections. Some sections regard Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State as the credible winner of the election.
