Amateur footage has been obtained by Face Of Agulu of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum election


The mobile phone video of Nigeria Governors’ Forum election held on May 24 during which Rotimi Amaechi, was reelected chairman after he defeated Jonah Jang  19 votes to 16. 

Using a mobile phone, Rauf Aregbesola of Osun captured most of the proceedings of an election that featured intense maneuvering and fierce disagreement.
The footage shows the 35 governors voting, the counting of votes and the declaration of result by Asishana Okauru, the presiding officer who is also the director general of the forum.

At a point during the recording, Akwa Ibom’s Godswill Akpabio, realising that the election was being taped, charges angrily at Aregbesola. The governor however resumed his secret recording after Akpabio relents.

Plenty of fodder for continued speculation on the actual conduct of the election. See for youself.
