The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated the Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, on his election as the new Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF).
In a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the APC said NGF’s unanimous election of Fayemi to lead the Forum till 2021 was a right choice judging by Fayemi’s proven record of progressive leadership and experience as a development expert, minister, governor, among other endeavours.
The statement partly reads, “Since its establishment, the non-partisan Nigeria Governors’ Forum has been a strategic partner in deepening democracy and entrenching good governance in the country. We are confident that the NGF under Fayemi’s leadership will continue in this best practice by cooperating and supporting the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration in delivering on the Change Agenda for Nigerians, particularly as the country gears up for the next four years of the administration’s renewed mandate.
“The APC wishes Fayemi a very successful and impactful tenure and look forward to cordial relationship between the NGF and the President Buhari-led APC administration. This undoubtedly will ensure the successful implementation of the Next Level plans for our collective progress as a country.”
