Jang, Amaechi clash again

I am of the opinion that the press should stop disturbing   the Nigerian public with the inability of the state governors to conduct a mere election of 35 persons. They all have shown that they are not true democrats-both the person that changed the rule to suit him by being the umpire in an election in which he is a major contender, and the person who failed to accept the outcome of an election simply because he lost. They are not the best the country can afford. I want to suggest the proscription of Nigeria Governors’ Forum  for it is of no value to an ordinary Nigerian. The forum is self-serving and their ongoing fight is over the nation’s money. Enough of all these distractions.
