Amaechi-Led NGF Tackles President Jonathan

The Nigeria Governors’ Forum have accused the Presidency of plotting the impeachment of the Governor of Nasarawa State, Mallam Tanko Almakura. The governors said this after their meeting in Abuja on Monday.

A four-paragraph communique of the meeting was read by Chairman of the Forum, who is the Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi. The communique read:
“It has come to our notice that the Presidency is plotting to illegally impeach the Governor of Nasarawa State, Mr. Tanko Al-Makura. We condemn this renewed assault on constitutional democracy.”
The governors also condemn the suspension of the CBN Governor, Mallam Sanusi Lamido...

The Forum said the action was wrong and that the suspension was aimed at diverting attention from the current national discourse on the missing $20bn from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation account.

According to them, “The suspension of Sanusi by Mr. President is in clear breach of the Nigerian Constitution and the CBN Act, 2007. The suspension is aimed at diverting attention from the current national discourse on the allegations of corruption and questionable accountability.

“We support the call of the Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and the Senate Committee on Finance for a forensic audit of the NNPC Account.”

The governors also reiterated their concern about what they called the deliberate refusal of the Presidency to convene the National Economic Council meeting for seven months.

The Governor Amaechi-NGF said that the action had emasculated the constitutional opportunity to discuss the “perilous state of the Nigerian economy thus plunging the nation into an economic and political crisis.”
