Chuks Okocha in Abuja
The state governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday congratulated themselves for a successful second year in office.
The Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Aminu Waziri Tambawul, in a message issued by the Director-General of the Forum, Cyril Maduabum, congratulated all PDP governors on the anniversary of their ascension to office on May 29.
Tambawul said the PDP governors have demonstrated through impactful projects, policies, programmes and populist measures in their various states on what good governance should be in Nigeria.
The statement noted that the Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu; Akwa Ibom State, Emmanuel Udom; Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa; Adamawa State, Umaru Fintri; Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed; Bayelsa State, Senator Diri Duoye, Benue State, Samuel Ortom; Edo State, Godwin Obaseki; Enugu State, Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi; Rivers State, Nyesom Wike; Taraba State, Darious Ishaku; Sokoto State, Tambuwal, and Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, have all performed exceptionally well.
According to it, “Your performance in office has laid the foundation for a democratic, people -centred, progressive, enlightened, patriotic, nationalistic, robust and problem-solving government at the centre in 2023 in a united, secure, educated, healthy, economically and technologically strong, and socially and politically stable Nigeria under God.
“The spate of inauguration of completed projects in all spheres and sectors in the various PDP-controlled states in Nigeria is truly worthy of emulation.”
He said it is self-evident fact that the PDP governors are truly ambassadors of good governance and accountability, adding: “You are worthy examples of what leadership is all about-caring, dedicated and committed to the security and general wellbeing of all citizens in your various states.
“While congratulating your Excellency, we are mindful of the very terrible problems caused by the APC administration as a result of sheer incompetence and lack of capacity which has plunged Nigeria into debilitating insecurity and economic stagnation.
“We implore you to continue with your patriotic duty in shoring partisanship by helping to steady the ship of the Nigerian state, as Nigerians look up to you, the PDP governors, and indeed the PDP for salvation and redemption.”
He prayed to Almighty God “to give you the strength and wisdom to continue to excel in the provision of democratic benefits for Nigerians in your remaining years in office.”
