Makinde, Others To Attend 3-day Governor’s Forum Induction

The Nigeria’s Governors Forum (NGF) Secretariat is organising a three-day Induction Programme for newly-elected and returning governors.

The programme, according to a statement issued by the NGF Secretariat, will commence from Monday 29th April to 1st May, 2019.

Also, a day summit has been scheduled for the wives of the governors as well so as to develop and utilize their platforms to address critical issues affecting their states.

The induction for the incoming and returning governors, according to a statement from the NGF Secretariat, “is aimed at supporting incoming governors to develop key governance and management skills that will enable them transit from campaigning to managing of the processes of governance.”

Other objectives of the induction include preparing governors to make the most of their transition from campaigning to governing and building bridges for effective leadership.

“Exposing governors to relevant contemporary national priorities in critical sectors of the economy and driving consensus on opportunities to achieve desired outcomes.

“This is aimed at generating conversation among the newly elected governors, respected national and international leaders, heads of national institutions and development partners, among others.”

Expected at the occasion are critical stakeholders, including current and past governors of Nigeria and the United States, to provide the opportunity for Nigerian governors to, not only network with national and global leaders, but also to gather useful information that will help them transit into their new roles as chief executives of states.

It is also expected that all the governors will, at the end of their induction, have their knowledge and skills honed on the nuances of governance to better equip them to hit the ground running

The NGF also stated that it “finds it imperative to highlight the task before governors and support them to create a workable framework that will aid them to achieve a smooth transition into their new administrations.
