Declaring open yesterday the 2023 induction Programme for re-elected and elected Governors organised by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF, President Buhari has urged Nigerians especially the political gladiators to be patient, tolerant and use what he described as the appropriate channels to seek redress when they believe the elections as conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC were unfair practices along the way.

Represented at the event by his Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, President Buhari said it became imperative to ask Nigerians to seek redress in court if they are not happy because he is a veteran in politics having contested many times before he finally won.

Speaking to the reelected and elected Governors, the President urged them to use the opportunity of their proximity to the people to have an instant pulse on their needs and challenges, just as he urged them to device creative and judicious means of addressing the myriad of issues that confront the people daily.

President Buhari said, “I welcome you all to this induction programme for Governors organized by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF). The NGF Induction as we have come to know is a programme meant to prepare new and returning governors for the task of governance, leadership and site hardship. This has become a tradition and practice one that is indeed remarkable and places each of you along the path of success.

” I have always maintained that democracy is not an end state nor is it a static event. It is an evolutionary process that takes its participants on a journey of self-actualization. The process forces us to hold a mirror to our elves, and by doing so we are made to constantly review and improve its critical elements to ensure that we have an inclusive democratic practice that gives faith to voters.
