President Bola Tinubu says governors are critical to the developments that citizens are yearning to see in the country.

Tinubu spoke via a congratulatory message to Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, governor of Kwara, and Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo, after their emergence as chairman and deputy chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF).

The president also congratulated Hope Uzodinma, governor of Imo, and Uba Sani, governor of Kaduna, who were also chosen as chairman and deputy chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF).

In a statement on Thursday, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, a media aide to the president, quoted Tinubu as urging the new officials to discharge their duties diligently.


“I congratulate the governor of Kwara state, His Excellency Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, on his emergence as the chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF), and the governor of Imo state, His Excellency Hope Uzodinma, on his election as the chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF),” Tinubu said.

“In the same vein, I also congratulate His Excellency Seyi Makinde, the governor of Oyo state, and his Kaduna state counterpart, His Excellency senator Uba Sani, on their elections as deputy chairmen for the two respective forums.

“As chief executives of states, governors are critical to the overall success of our administration and the desire for a Nigeria that works for all.


“As an important fulcrum in our journey to a more prosperous and safe country, what states do or do not do matters a lot. I am therefore obliged to ask the new leaders to use their good offices to bring about a convergence of vision between the federal government, under my leadership, and governments at the state level.

“It is my prayer that you acquit yourselves diligently in discharging the responsibilities bestowed on you through this election.”
