Tambuwal Takes Over From Fayemi As NGF Chairman by etokhana: 5:09pm On Sep 22
Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has replaced his Ekiti State counterpart, Kayode Fayemi, as the Chairman, Nigeria Governors’ Forum.

Tambuwal assumed the position on Thursday at the National Economic Council meeting in Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, after Fayemi transferred the baton of office to him.

The Director, Media and Public Affairs of NGF, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, confirmed the change of baton in a statement on Thursday.

According to the statement, Tambuwal will be holding fort until May next year when a proper election is conducted among the governors.

The statement read, “Before making the announcement, the Ekiti State Governor acknowledged the result driven output of the NEC and thanked his colleagues and other members of the council for their support, explaining that yes, we may be occasionally troublesome, coming from the Forum of Governors, and we do test your patience but you have never really expressed any frustration with all our truculent questions and the insistence that the federation must be a true federation.”

“The new President of the FORAF also did not forget to thank the Secretariat of the NEC and through the NEC thanked the President and Commander in Chief of the Country for taking the resolutions of the NEC seriously by implementing them.

“In his response the Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo said the NGF chairman had taken the wind out of their sail, because he was “meant to, on behalf of the NEC commend the Ekiti Governor and NGF Chairman’s informed and patriotic services to the council in the last four years and that was enhanced by your chairmanship of the NGF, admitting that the NGF has ensured that we move to a true federation, not just in words but in deeds as well.”

“Professor Osinbajo prayed that Dr fayemi’s services both nationally and globally to development, and to all of the good which the nation deserves and the global community deserves will continue.

“Dr Fayemi formally hands over the Chairmanship of the NGF to Rt Hon Amuinu Waziri Tambuwal on the October 16th.”

Before his new role, Tambuwal served as Vice Chairman of the Forum under Fayemi in the last four years.

All good though.

But i have never been a fan of this man, Aminu tambuwal . Anytime i hear his name, what comes to mind first is a present-day judas, betrayal, backstabber, ,falsity, apostate, double-dealer, serpent, quisling .

Infact i can never trust a Tambuwa to be my bestMan on my wedding day. He can start having an affair with my wicked mother-in law for money.

How did an opposition Govornor become the head of the forum? I thought it should go to the party in the majority which is still APC. I don't think I have seen a case where the opposition was the head of the NGF.

Sorry,just a little bit confused

I pity Atiku and PDP. What Wike will do to them will be worse than what Modu Sheriff did to PDP that made Atiku run away to Dubai.
