The Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF, on Friday, congratulated Bala Ngilari on his swearing-in as the new governor of Adamawa State, with a charge to run an inclusive administration and ensure delivery of the dividends of democracy to the people of the state.

Mr. Ngilari, who was the deputy to impeached governor, Murtala Nyako, was sworn-in as substantive governor on Wednesday after a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja asked the acting governor, Umaru Fintiri, to vacate office.

Bala NgilariThe NGF in a statement by its Director General, Asishana Okauru, described the ruling of the court as a landmark judgment and a plus for the judiciary and the Nigerian democracy.

It also commended Mr. Ngilari for standing firm and remaining unfazed while the case lasted and asked political leaders to always explore court processes in resolving political disagreements.

“The Forum sees the ruling as a landmark judgment and a plus for the Judiciary and the Nigerian democracy. We urge the judiciary to remain steadfast, bold and independent in anticipation of several other electoral cases as we move closer to the 2015 general elections.

“We also seize this opportunity to call on political leaders to always explore court processes in resolving political disagreements.

“We praise the new governor for standing firm and remaining undaunted while the case lasted and charge him to be inclusive in his administrative style and ensure the delivery of true democracy dividends to the people of Adamawa state.

“Most importantly, we call on other stakeholders to be mindful of potential pitfalls caused by over-zealousness as this would impact negatively on our thriving democracy”, the statement read.
