Outgoing governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, and Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) on Thursday attended his last meeting, where he spoke glowingly of the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
He described Osinbajo, who also doubles as Chairman of the National Economic Council (NEC) of exemplary leadership, especially in galvanizing ideas from governors across the federation to foster development.
According to Fayemi, having served in previous NEC and longer than most current members, he could affirm that the VP’s leadership has been outstanding, adding that the Council has never had the kind of leadership that Osinbajo has provided.
The Vice President also returned the commendation from the outgoing Ekiti State Governor.
On behalf of the NEC, the VP also praised Governor Fayemi especially in his role as Chairman of the NGF, and noted his “informed and patriotic contributions” to the work of the NEC.
The Deputy Governor of Akwa Ibom, Moses Frank Ekpo, also commended the VP’s leadership of the Council and paid tributes also to the outgoing NGF Chairman for leading the Forum so ably.
He also thanked the outgoing Council Secretary for a job well done.
