Abuja, Nigeria – (African Boulevard News) – Muhammad Akanbi argues that Governor AbdulRahmanAbdulRazaq of Kwara state has the experience and leadership qualities to serve as the next Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF). According to Akanbi, President MuhammaduBuhari’s administration would do well to consider AbdulRazaq for this position, given his impressive track record.
AbdulRazaq was elected the Governor of Kwara state in 2019, and since then, he has implemented a raft of policies aimed at improving the lives of his constituents. For instance, he has initiated several agricultural programs to boost food production and create jobs, while also investing in infrastructure and security.
From Akanbi’s perspective, AbdulRazaq’s tenure as governor highlights his ability to deliver results, even in the face of daunting challenges. Moreover, he has demonstrated a willingness to collaborate with stakeholders across political affiliations, an attribute deemed essential for the NGF Chairmanship role.
AbdulRazaq’s leadership has been instrumental in addressing the state’s healthcare system, providing free healthcare to pregnant women and children under five years. He has also rehabilitated primary healthcare facilities across the state and purchased state-of-the-art medical equipment.
As Akanbi notes, the NGF, a non-partisan body of the 36 governors in Nigeria, plays a crucial role in shaping policy and ensuring that state governments work together towards common goals. With AbdulRazaq at the helm, the NGF would have a leader who is committed to advancing the interests of the states while prioritizing the welfare of the people.
Several industry experts have also expressed their confidence in AbdulRazaq’s ability to lead the NGF. For instance, a political analyst, Ademola Babalola, said, “Governor AbdulRazaq has demonstrated a unique combination of vision, pragmatism, and leadership. He has a deep understanding of the issues facing the country and has shown an unwavering commitment to addressing them.”
In conclusion, Governor AbdulRahmanAbdulRazaq’s leadership qualities, experience, and record of accomplishment make him an excellent candidate for the NGF Chairman position. His track record in Kwara state is proof that he can deliver results and work effectively with stakeholders across political affiliations. The NGF should consider electing him as their new Chairman.
