Most Governors Behind Jonathan – Akpabio
Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State on Friday said majority of the members of the Governors’ Forum were behind the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.

He also denied allegations that the forum was already becoming a cartel and working against the Nigerian people.

Akpabio spoke to journalists at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, shortly after he arrived from London.

He said the forum was actually meant to collaborate with the Federal Government to improve the living conditions of the people.

He said, “For now, I want to re-assure Nigerians that the Governors’ Forum means well for the country; majority of us are behind Mr. President and we are determined to work together so that we have one democracy in Nigeria, the government that can deliver the dividends for the good of Nigeria.

“I think that is all that matters, there is no room for acrimony. I will not be a party to any divisive tendency that will tend to turn the forum into a kind of a trade union I will not support that.

“I will not be a party to anything that will attempt to pull down the government of President Jonathan and that I’m assuring you. The allegation they are making is news to my ears, I’ve not been around for a while and I don’t know what is going on. Definitely, when I get in, I will observe things and if I find out that the forum is what they are saying, you will hear me, I will speak out.”

Akpabio also stated that Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu would resume work in the next 10 days.

Chime had reportedly been on admission in a London hospital since September 2012.
