The Northern States Governors’ Forum (NSGF) has described Governors Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State and Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi State as key players in Nigeria’s political space, as they make significant efforts to ensure good governance, peace and economic development.

Chairman of the forum, Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State, disclosed this in a statement to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Dr. Makut Macham, in Jos.

Sule clocked 62 years, while Bagudu clocked 60 on December 26.

The statement added that the governors impacted the lives of their people and Nigerians at large through various responsibilities including their current offices.

“Governor Bagudu is a leader with passion for transforming the lives of the people through empowerment and physical infrastructure. He has demonstrated such in his tenure as governor and has made enormous contributions to develop an economic blueprint for the North, particularly in the era of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and other challenges.

“He has also shown courage in his leadership as Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF),” Lalong said.

PGF is the umbrella body of All Progressives Congress (APC) governors.

The forum’s chairman described Sule as a technocrat whose vast knowledge and experience reflected in his style of governance.

“He has put in a lot of efforts to ensure that the people of Nasarawa benefit from the enormous endowments of the state in agriculture and solid minerals among others,” he stated, adding that the forum wished them more years of good health, peace and wisdom, while urging them to continue to provide good leadership for their people.

He also urged them to continue to play their roles in ensuring that the region and Nigeria at large overcome the many challenges they are currently facing.
