National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) under Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, would support President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in entrenching good governance in the country.
APC spokesperson, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said this in a statement on Thursday to congratulate Fayemi on his election as new NGF chairman.
Mr Issa-Onilu said the choice of Fayemi was good considering his record of progressive leadership and experience as a development expert, minister, and governor among other endeavours.
“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,” he said.
Issa-Onilu wished Fayemi a successful and impactful tenure, adding that APC looked forward to a cordial relationship between NGF and the Federal Government.
Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambwal, a member of the opposition, was elected vice chairman of the forum.
Tambuwal was nominated by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State and seconded by his Ondo State counterpart, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
