NIGERIA: ACN Faults Recognition of Jang’s Faction of NGF

 The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has described as  a travesty of democracy for President Goodluck Jonathan to recognise Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State as the chairman of the Nigerian Governors' Forum (NGF).

The party said it is smacks of political opportunism for the President to show his bias for the faction of NGF led by Jang even though he lost to Governor Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State in what has been widely acknowledged as a free, fair and transparent NGF poll.

In a statement issued on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the President's ill-advised decision has shown that he has little or no respect for democracy, and will stop at nothing to jettison time-tested ideals on the altar of political opportunism.
