Governors of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, under the platform of Progressive Governors Forum, PGF, have restated their commitment to making all their states models of good governance with records of rapid human development and progress founded on the principles of social democracy in line with provisions of APC constitution and manifesto.
The governors further stated that in 2021, they shall continue to take all the necessary steps to roll out programs that will consolidate the development of synergy, experience sharing, and collaboration by all progressive states.
In a new year message issued Friday and signed by the Chairman of PGF, Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State, the PGF joined all Nigerians to welcome the beginning of 2021, while commending the resilience of countrymen, and indeed humanity all over the world against the global Covid-19 pandemic.
While acknowledging that the year 2020 was the most challenging year of the last century as people and nations across the globe are still struggling with the health pandemic occasioned by Covid-19, the governors noted that the discovery of vaccine at the end of 2020 is landmark progress, which certainly bolsters hope that human life will return to normal in 2021.
“As Progressive Governors elected on the platform of our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), we especially recognize the excellent work of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on Covid-19. In particular, we hereby appreciate and commend the support of all Nigerians across partisan and all other differences. Our ability as a nation to control the spread of the virus is no doubt the result of the diligent work of the PTF under the leadership of the Secretary to Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, and the support of all Nigerians. We appeal to all Nigerians to continue to support every initiative of the Federal Government in order to bring a permanent closure to this world pandemic.
“We, in particular, wish to note that, once again, our party, APC, under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari is able to inspire the process of producing a national budget for the year 2021 before the New Year. This new fiscal orientation is part of the change we promised Nigerians. This is made possible given a committed, patriotic, and selfless leadership of the legislative arm of government, under His Excellency, Sen. Ahmed Lawan, Senate President, and Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker, House of Representatives. As a party and as a government, we have set a new standard in our national budgeting system. Already, many of our states have similarly replicated this feat. We therefore also commend all our state legislatures for effectively demonstrating abiding loyalty to ensure that all our governments lived up to our philosophy of change,” the governors stated.
They appealed to all Nigerians to continue to support the security forces in the effort to end insecurity in the country, saying that Nigerians must resist all attempts to politicize insecurity.
“Ending insecurity will require strong national unity. We, therefore, wish to acknowledge and commend President Muhammadu Buhari, for providing leadership at the national level, as well as ensuring that all arms of our security services are discharging their responsibilities. As Progressive Governors, we will continue to support the Federal Government and the security services,” they averred.
