The Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) has reacted to the recently held Ekiti governorship election which was won by Dr Kayode Fayemi.
Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State, who serves as the NGF chairman, wished the outgoing Governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose, luck in his future endeavour.
Yari said: “Elections are usually healthy contests that determine who keeps the mantle of leadership in the state for a certain period of time and not a victor and vanquished affair.
“The NGF chairman, while wishing the out-going governor of Ekiti State Mr. Peter Ayodele Fayose, luck in his new endeavour and stating that the NGF would miss his invaluable contributions at its meetings, also welcomes the in-coming governor to the forum to which he is returning as a ranking and experienced member.”
He added that he hopes the Governor-elect would join hands with the other Governors in the country to strengthen the NGF.
