The Chairman of the Nigeria Governor Forum (NGF) and Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, on their swearing-in for a second term.
In a congratulatory message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode, the governor also congratulates his colleague-governors, returning and newly elected.
Fayemi stated that he is convinced that Nigeria will witness a higher level of development and prosperity in the next four years.
The chairman of the NGF also congratulated Nigerians on 20 years of unbroken democratic governance, saying that the milestone was achieved by the sheer determination of the Nigerian people to make democracy work.
According to Fayemi, “Today is significant in so many ways. The President and the Vice President are taking the oath of office for a second term in office, just as returning and newly elected governors are being inaugurated in 29 states. This has been the tradition since 1999.
“As a people, we have every reason to be happy today as we witness 20 years of unbroken democratic governance in our country. We owe this to the commitment and determination of the Nigerian people, who have come to see democracy as the most viable option.
“So, while we say a big congratulations to the President, the Vice President and the governors, the biggest congratulation go to the Nigerian people- the true hero of our democracy.
“Now, the task of taking Nigeria to a higher level of development and prosperity has begun. We wish Mr President and our governors a successful and impactful tenure.”
