James Ibori appointed Patron of Former Governors Forum

A former Governor of Delta State, James Ibori has been appointed as Patron of the Former Governors Forum.
The group is made up of past state governors in Nigeria.
This was contained in a letter signed by Babangida Aliyu, the Chairman of the group and former governor of Niger State, and Prof Tunde Esan, the Executive Secretary. The appointment took effect from July 13, 2020.
“In line with the provisions of the Former Governors Forum and based on the unanimous decision of the Executive Committee of the Forum, we convey to you your appointment as Patron of the Forum.
“The Forum recognizes your role not only as a former governor but equally as a respected elder statesman with passion for the promotion of unity in Nigeria, which is the major objective of the Forum.
“In addition, your role as Patron will be invaluable in the development of good leadership qualities among emerging leaders in Nigeria,” the letter reads in part.
It would be recalled that Ibori served as governor of Delta State from 1999 to 2007.
He was convicted and sentenced to thirteen years in prison for money laundering by a court in the United Kingdom in 2012. He served four out of the thirteen year sentence and was released in 2016.
