Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has replaced his Ekiti State counterpart, Kayode Fayemi, as the Chairman, Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF).

Tambuwal assumed the position yesterday at the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting in Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, after Fayemi transferred the baton of office to him.

The Director, Media and Public Affairs of NGF, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, confirmed the change of baton in a statement.

According to the statement, Tambuwal will be holding the fort until May next year when a proper election is conducted among the governors.

Before his new role, Tambuwal served as Vice Chairman of the Forum under Fayemi in the last four years.

It would be recalled that Fayemi was recently elected as the President of the Forum of Regional and State Governments in Saidia in the state of Casablanca in Morrocco.
