A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, has congratulated Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on his emergence as new chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF).
In a statement from his media office, yesterday, in Abuja, Olawepo-Hashim said the victory on the heels of AbdulRazaq’s re-election and impending inauguration for a second term in office has confirmed his sterling leadership qualities.
“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 stands him out among others.
“I am proud to state that your humility and exemplary life of service have recommended you to your colleague governors, who have found you worthy to be first among equals as chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum,” he said.
Olawepo-Hashim prayed God to grant the governor the wisdom to uphold his pledge of upholding ideals and vision of the forum as a most credible, authoritative, influential and effective inter-party platform for consensus building, peaceful resolution and advancement of pan-Nigeria goals.
He equally rejoiced with the people of Kwara State for the remarkable achievement, expressing confidence that the governor would use his new position for the good of the country.
While noting the governor’s promise to ensure regular consultation with his colleagues to build consensus, Olawepo-Hashim enjoined the state chief executives to support and rally round their new chairman in the onerous task of building a better nation.
