Yekini Nabena, deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has accused Governor Nyesom Wike of being part of those destroying Nigeria's Governors Forum.
This followed a statement from the Rivers state governor in which he called NGF a toothless bulldog.
Nabena who disclosed this in Abuja said the governor played a part when the Peoples Democratic Party's administration introduced the “16 is greater than 19” political formula in the Forum.
Going further, he urged Wike to wake up to the reality of a new era of justice, fairness and true democracy under the administration of the APC.
Nabena subsequently urged Nigerians to disregard the governor’s comment. He said the governors' forum is alive under “a civilised governor”, Dr Kayode Fayemi.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the NGF replied to a remark made by Wike over embattled Governor Godwin Obaseki.
NFG through a statement by its spokesperson, Abdulrazaque Bakindo, on Monday, June 15, described the governor's criticism as the one lacking an understanding of NGF and Progressive Governors' Forum (PGF).
Bakindo said as an old member of NGF who attended meetings regularly, Governor Wike could not have referred to the NGF as a beggars forum.
“The NGF is happy to state that Gov Wike is one of its strong members and has delegated his Deputy Gov to the Forum and he has never missed any meeting,” Bakindo said and warned against media misrepresentation.
Legit.ng had also reported that in what will come as a shocking development for many Nigerians, former governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi, is reportedly in a coma.
The former governor who is said to be on a ventilator for some time now is battling for his life having contracted coronavirus.
Ajimobi who is receiving treatment in Lagos at the First Cardiology Consultants Hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos is the vice-chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
