- Buhari promises to continue supporting NGF.
- Urges him to see his election as a unique opportunity to forge a harmonious relationship with FG.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday congratulated Ekiti Governor, Kayode Fayemi on his emergence as the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF).
iDONSABI reported that Fayemi was chosen by consensus as the Chairman of the NGF at a meeting on Wednesday night in Abuja.
President Buhari in a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, in Abuja, said Fayemi’s choice by consensus indicated the degree of confidence in him by his colleagues.
He, therefore, urged Fayemi to see the election as a unique opportunity to forge a harmonious and fruitful working relationship with the Federal Government and other tiers of government.
“The focal objective of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum at all times ought to be the higher interest of the people of this country above partisan, political, religious or regional differences,” he said.
The president, therefore, assured that the Federal Government would continue to support the Forum in its laudable objectives.
The president also commended the immediate past NGF chairman, Gov. Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara for his leadership styles.
