Fallout Of NGF Elections: Stop Over-Heating The Polity, Ahmed Pleads With Colleagues

gov_-abdulfatai-ahmed-495x300Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State has called for truce among his colleagues following the controversy that trailed last Friday’s outcome of the Nigeria Governors’ forum (NGF) election.

He said the truce is desirable in order not to lose sight of the peer review for development which motivated the Forum’s emergence in the first place.

Speaking to journalists weekend on his return from Abuja, Ahmed also urged his colleagues to shun divisive political tendencies and bury the hatchet while focussing on using the Forum as a platform for driving development for the benefit of the people.

“If there are issues as regards the election of the forum’s chairman, we should use the same platform to resolve them rather than fanning the embers of discord in the media. Our choking security challenges should not be compounded with political conundrum,” the governor stressed.
