Mimiko To Lead PDP Govs' Forum by Tmike0803(m): 1:55pm On Jun 12, 2015
Members of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’
Forum are expected to meet in Abuja next week.
It will be their first meeting since the end of the elections
and members are expected to confirm Governor Olusegun
Mimiko of Ondo State as the new Chairman of the Forum.
Speaking with our correspondent in Abuja on Friday, the
Coordinator of the Forum, Mr. Osaro Onaiwu, said there
had been informal meetings where about nine of the
governors zeroed in on Mimiko as the new chairman of
the Forum.
According to Onaiwu, an earlier meeting scheduled for this
week was shelved as the governors were said to be
engaged in the negotiations and horse-trading with
regards to the elections of the new leadership of the
National Assembly.
Asked if other governors were not interested in leading
the Forum, the PDP Governors’ Forum coordinator said
the coming meeting will determine if there was such
interest.
He said, “Am aware that about nine of them have already
thrown their support behind Mimiko to lead the forum,
because they said they want very steady and organised
hands now that the PDP is in opposition.”
Former Governor of Akwa-Ibom State, Sen. Godswill
Akpabio, was the first and the only chairman of the
Forum.
The Forum was hurriedly formed during the crisis that
rocked the Nigeria Governors Forum, when a former
Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, was elected
the chairman.
Following the emergence of Amaechi as the NGF
chairman, aggrieved members of the Forum later formed
their own faction of the Forum and elected a former
Governor of Plateau State, Mr. Jonah Jang, as their
chairman.

He deserves the position dividing the forum the way he did to the party after cross carpeting!

Better choice over having the likes of Wike or Fayoshe as Party leaders.
I doubt if the G will be able to deliver his state for the party in the coming gubernatorial election. No more federal backing; plus, the federal governing party produces two of the three senators and majority of the House of rep members in the state.
