Simon Bako Lalong of Plateau State has emerged chairman of the Northern Governors Forum.
He was elected at a meeting of Nothern governors which was held in Kaduna on Friday.
Lalong’s association with the caucus in the past has caused rancor especially among some Plateau indigenes who feel his presence in the bloc is baseless.
The position was previously held by Kashim Shettima, governor of Borno State.
More to come.
