The Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) will on Monday begin an induction programme for newly-elected and returning state Governors.

The forum said in Abuja on Saturday that the initiative is aimed at supporting incoming governors to develop key governance and management skills that will enable them transition from campaigning to managing the processes of governance.

A statement issued by NGF’s spokesman, Abdulrazak Barkindo In Abuja gave the objective of the forum to include: preparing Governors to make the most of their transition from campaigning to governing and building bridges for effective leadership; deepening the knowledge and skills of governors on the principles of governance and shaping their disposition and outlook to align with their work and motivation levels.

Also included in the objectives are creating a platform that will enable governors to fully understand the philosophies, responsibilities, organisation, and cultural values, along with key processes of governance.

Others are creating an opportunity for peer learning, promotion of global best practices and networking with national and global leaders and exposing Governors to relevant contemporary national priorities in critical sectors of the economy and driving consensus on opportunities to achieve desired outcomes.

According to the Barkindo, the programme will hold between 28th April – 1st May 2019 and it will be multilayered and interactive.

He explained that it will feature plenary presentations and discussions by key stakeholders with diverse experiences.

Barkindo stated: “This is aimed at generating conversation among the newly elected governors, respected national and international leaders, heads of national institutions and development partners, among others.”

Expected at the occasion are critical stakeholders, including current and past governors of Nigeria and the United States, “to provide the opportunity for Nigerian governors to, not only network with national and global leaders, but also to gather useful information that will help them transition into their new roles as chief executives of states,” he said.
