PDP Congratulates Newly Sworn In Governors, Charge Them On Service

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated the re-elected and newly-elected state governors on its platform while charging them to remain steadfast to commitment to good governance. The PDP on Tuesday issued a statement signed by its spokesperson, Debo Ologunagba applauded re-elected Governors Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State, Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State. Ologunagba noted that their re-election is a testament of the approval by the people of their commitment to duty as demonstrated in their outstanding performances particularly in transforming their States in the last four years in line with the manifesto of the PDP. The Party congratulated newly elected Governors Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta State, Umo Eno of Akwa Ibom State, Kefas Agbu of Taraba State, Dauda Lawal of Zamfara State, Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State, Peter Mbah of Enugu State and Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State. That is following their successful inauguration with the PDP urging them to hit the ground running in delivering good governance in their respective States. The PDP also charged all governors on the platform of the party to continue in implementing the people-oriented manifesto and programmes of the PDP in the security and wellbeing of Nigerians. “Our Party however urges Nigerians not to despair but remain calm and optimistic as the PDP focuses on retrieving all our stolen mandates at all levels of the 2023 general elections, in accordance with the Rule of Law and laid down judicial process,” he said. The PDP Governors’ Forum has also congratulated all its re-elected and newly elected governors on their successful inauguration. The Forum in a statement issued by its Director-General, Cyril Maduabum, noted that it is particularly grateful to God for the election and inauguration of “very capable hands to pilot the ship of various PDP states at this time.” It said as they assume duties in the exalted office of the governor, it is the forum’s prayer that God will give them the wisdom, discernment, ability, and resources both human and material to face the challenges of statecraft. The Forum admonished also that the gubernatorial office is a call to service unto the people of various states and the nation in general, and comes with pressing demands and responsibilities, requiring focus, loyalty, discipline, professionalism and diligence, traits they all have in abundance.
