GOVERNOR AMAECHI CALLS FOR EMERGENCY GOVERNORS' FORUMN MEETING


Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, who is the Chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum,  NGF, as elected by majority of the governors, has summoned an emergency meeting of the forum.

The meeting scheduled to hold on Wednesday will also tackle other important issues such as:
An opportunity for Gov. Amaechi to brief his fellow Governors on the letter they wrote to President Goodluck Jonathan on the sharing of revenue accruing to the states from the Federation Account.

It was reported that at their last meeting, which was held in Abuja on December 12, 2013, the governors said they were going to confront President Jonathan on the alleged refusal of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to remit $49.8bn to the Federation Account as revealed by CBN governors, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

The missing money has been brought down to about $10billion and many are wondering how come such a huge sum will be missing and nothing was done until Sanusi raised the alarm.
The meeting would also deliberate on funding challenges at the state level, how to move the NGF forward and stop the charade by Gov Jonah Jang who lost in an election to Gov Amaechi.
