NGF valedictory meeting to be held Wednesday


The valedictory meeting of the 36 state governors of the federation will be held on Wednesday, April 26, 2023 in Abuja. This is according to an invitation 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, the fifth in 2023, will be physical as four previous sessions 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, 2023. 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 the chairmanship of the forum.
