The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors Forum has emphasised the need for unity, cooperation and love among the forum in particular, as well as the party and the nation in general.

According to the Forum, unity, cooperation and love are the surest way to continue the delivery of the dividends of democracy to the people who elected them.

Chairman of the PDP-GF, governor of Sokoto state, Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, who gave the advice at a special programme of the Forum held recently in Abuja, charged the governors to strive to put their interests behind that of the PDP, the people and the nation.

Four of PDP-GF’s former chairmen- ex-Governors Olusegun Mimiko (Ondo State), Ayodele Fayose (Ekiti State), Ibrahim Dankwambo (Gombe State) and Henry Seriake Dickson (Bayelsa State) were honoured at the colourful event that attracted the who-is-who in the PDP, including the party’s presidential candidate in the last election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The four former chairmen of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum (PDP-GF) were honoured in appreciation of their selfless and invaluable roles.

While Dankwabo and Dickson personally received their awards, presented by the acting National Chairman of the PDP, Ambassador Umar Ilya Damagum, Fayose’s award was received on his behalf by Hajia Aisha Ibrahim, while that of Mimiko was received on his behalf by a former Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Hon. Agboola Ajayi.

According to Tambuwal, “gathered here today are past Governors who served meritoriously as Chairmen of the PDP Governors’ Forum. These men at different times piloted the transformation agenda which we all enjoy at various levels in various states today.

“For my colleagues, out-going Governors of our Forum, I commend all of you for your solidarity and comradeship. As a first among equals, I can vouch for the warm support and friendship of all the Governors of our Party.

“Sometimes, it was tough agreeing in all things, but we never forgot to put our interests behind that of our party, people and nation.

“The moments we have shared under this Forum have been moments of joy, learning, comradeship support for one another and a desire for the best of our Party, States and country. To you all, I express my gratitude”, he said
