Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, yesterday congratulated his counterparts in Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi and his Kebbi State counterpart, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu, on their emergence as Chairmen of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) and Progressives Governors’ Forum (PGF) respectively.
Ambode, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr. Habib Aruna, described their emergence as fitting and well deserved, adding that both being Governors from the progressive fold was not only a positive sign for the party, but also a good omen for democracy in Nigeria.
The statement reads: “Let me congratulate my brother governors, Dr. Kayode Fayemi and Alhaji Atiku Bagudu on their election as Chairman of NGF and PGF respectively. Their emergence has come at a time when our democracy needs men with proven track record of progressive leadership and experience. “Dr. Fayemi is a technocrat and development expert with a rich wealth of experience over the years and I am confident that he will galvanise the NGF to work with President Muhammadu Buhari to take the nation to the next level.
“Alhaji Bagudu has also proven his mettle as a man of honour, a progressive to the core and without a doubt, his emergence as the Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum will unite the party to be stronger, all inclusive, deepen the democratic institutions and provide the necessary support that Mr. President requires as he continues to stir Nigeria to greater heights.”
