Atiku Bagudu, the Governor of Kebbi State has been elected as the chairman of Progressive Governors’ Forum. The forum is made up of governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
On Thursday night, he was elected at the meeting of the governors held in Abuja at Imo Governor’s Lodge. Bagudu, whose election was united, replaced Rochas Okorocha, the Governor of Imo State, whose tenure will expire on May 29.
The governor of Kebbi State says he will provide leadership to Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) to realise the collective vision of the Progressive Governors to build a strong, democratic and inclusive APC.
Considering all the internal political challenges facing the APC, the new chairman of PG also pledged to mobilise all party members and by extension Nigerians towards expanding and deepening democratic structures of the party by focusing on initiatives to guarantee the development of participatory governance structures as well as the guarantee of transparent, credible decision making process within the APC.
