NGF holds valedictory session for 17 outgoing govs

The valedictory meeting of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, comprising 36 state governors of the federation, will hold on Wednesday, April 26, in Abuja.

This is according to an invitation sent to all the 36 governors, issued by the Director General of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Mr Asishana Okauru.

According to the letter, the valedictory meeting will be physical unlike the four previous sessions, which were virtual.

The letter further stated that all the governors would have the opportunity to give their valedictory remarks after the chairman’s opening speech.

Seventeen governors are leaving the forum, having completed their terms of office, while newly elected ones would be inducted between May 14 and 17.

The meeting will bring to an end the chairmanship of Aminu Tambuwal, the Sokoto State Governor, who assumed leadership of the forum following the expiration of the tenure of former chairman and ex-Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi.

First-time governors are ineligible to contest for the chairmanship of the forum.
