State Governors elected under the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have promised Nigerians that they would deliver on their promises.
The governors noted that they are committed to making all states under their control models of good governance with records of rapid human development this year.
This was stated by Governor Atiku Bagudu, the Chairman of Progressives Governors Forum (PGF), on Friday.
According to him, the decision of the governors are inline with the principles of social democracy, provisions of APC’s constitution and manifesto.
“In 2021, we shall continue to take all the necessary steps to roll out programmes that will consolidate development of synergy, experience sharing and collaboration by all progressive states.
“The PGF felicitates with all Nigerians on this festive season and reiterate our commitment to the unity and development of Nigeria, development of our democratic institutions, while putting in place genuine programmes to bring an end to Covid-19 pandemic, tackle insecurity, fight crime, destroy all vestiges of corruption and create jobs and opportunities for all Nigerians.
“This would remain the basis of our programmes for massive infrastructural projects that would stimulate economic activity, reduce inequality and diminish poverty.
“The challenge before us as a nation is to ensure the development of democratic institutions in the country to be able to mobilise effective national responses and resolution of the health challenges created by the pandemic, the economic difficulty and the security challenges facing the country.
“These are not issues that should be reduced to politics.
“We must appeal to all Nigerian to have a strong sense of national unity and togetherness in responding to these challenges,” the governors said.
