The Nigeria Governors Forum will hold a valedictory meeting on Wednesday.
The forum’s director of media, Abdulrazaque Barkindo, quoted Asishana Okauru, the director-general, as saying this in an invitation letter to all 36 governors.
The meeting, being NGF’s fifth in 2023, would be physical. The forum had four virtual meetings earlier.
“After the chairman’s brief and few parting remarks, the floor would be open for valedictories from members.
“Seventeen governors are leaving the Forum, having completed their terms of office, while plans have reached an advanced stage for the onboarding of the new governors at the upcoming NGF induction for new and returning governors, which comes up between 14th and 17 May 2023,” Okauru said.
The meeting will mark the end of Governors Kayode Fayemi and Aminu Tambuwal’s leadership of the forum.
A new chairman will be elected among governors of the majority party. First-termers are ineligible to vie for the chairmanship of the forum.
