Kwara Governor Elected As Nigeria Governors’ Forum Chairman
The Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has been elected as the new Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF).
Governor Abdulrasaq takes over from the outgoing interim chairman and Governor of Sokoto state, Aminu Tambawul, according to Channels Television.
The Kwara governor was first elected governor in 2019 and won his re-election bid during the governorship election on March 18, 2023.
mNaija understands that Abdulrasaq battled Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa state for the forum chairmanship position.
The governors of Borno, Gombe, Nasarawa, and Kwara States are the ranking governors from the APC, hence, the new chairman of the forum emerged from the North-Central.
The NGF as a body had agreed to forgo election in the choice of its chairman and unanimously agree on one person, based on competence and relationship with individual colleagues.
