A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Presidential Candidate, Mr. Gbenga Olawepo- Hashim, has hailed the emergence of the Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman Abdulrazaq as chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF).
In a statement from his Media office in Abuja on Wednesday, Mr. Olawepo- Hashim explained that the emergence of the Kwara governor, coming on the heels of his recent re-election and a few days before his inauguration for a second term in office, has confirmed his sterling leadership qualities, which has propelled his performance as Kwara governor in the last four years.
“For a long time, Governor Abdulrazaq has been known as one not only endowed with extraordinary leadership traits, but a Nigerian of repute whose sterling qualities, managerial skills and humility in the art of governance, stand him out among others.
“I am proud to state that your humility and exemplary life of service have recommended you to your colleague in the NGF who have found you worthy to be first amongst equal as Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum,” he said.
He prayed that while the governor has pledged to uphold the ideals and vision of the NGF as a most credible, authoritative, influential and effective inter-party platform for consensus building and peaceful resolution and advancement of pan-Nigeria goals, God Almighty will continuously protect him and grant him wisdom to discharge his responsibilities.
