President Muhammadu Buhari has challenged the newly-elected Governors across the federation to deliver on their campaign promises to the people when they assume office.
He made the call in his remarks, delivered by the Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari, in Abuja, at the induction programme for Governors, organised by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF.
The Nigerian leader said by May 29, the governors-elect would be inaugurated to steer the affairs of their States for the next four years and become wholly responsible for the states as an enterprise.
He also urged them to take their responsibilities with almost responsibility to justify the trust bestowed on them by voters, or get voted out after four years.
Buhari enjoined the Forum to promote ideals that would address the challenges of democracy and governance in the country, noting that the role of the sub-nationals was critical in Nigeria socio-economic development as a nation.
Earlier in his remarks, the Forum’s Chairman, and Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, tasked the incoming administration on full diversification of Nigeria economy.
