On Wednesday, governors elected on the All Progressives Congress (APC) platform elected Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma as head of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF).
Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni verified this during a meeting with the APC National Working Committee (NWC) in Abuja.
During the meeting, Uzodinma addressed the party’s leadership, saying, “Under my watch, we will be very close to the party.”
“The purpose of the forum is to add impetus to the activities of the party and the government. We are only going to act as salesmen that will market the policies and programs of the government.”
The Imo governor further noted that; “arising from the manifesto promised to the people before the election, I can assure you that you have a team and working together with the kind of men I have seen as Progressives Governors members, I think we have gotten all it would take to ensure that policies of our government were fully market.”
