Outgoing NGF chairman rates Osinbajo’s leadership of NEC high



Gov. Kayode Fayemi, the outgoing Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), has applauded Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on his sterling leadership quality of the National Economic Council (NEC).

Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, said Fayemi, who is the outgoing Governor of Ekiti State, spoke at a virtual meeting presided over by the vice president on Thursday.

Fayemi said that Osinbajo in steering the council, had done a lot to ensure that the country was a true federation.

He also expressed his appreciation to the entire council and President Muhammadu Buhari.

Fayemi said that having served in previous NEC and longer than most current members, he could affirm that Osinbajo’s leadership had been outstanding.

He added that the council had never had the kind of leadership that Osinbajo had provided.

The governor said he hoped that such leadership of NEC would be maintained going forward.

“I want to particularly express my own gratitude to you for your leadership over the last four years that has reenergised this council in a manner that we have not seen in a long time.

“In fact, I should say over the last seven years, but I have been privileged to be part of it in the last four years.

“And I have been part of all the NEC’s proceedings before your time, but I can say without any shadow of a doubt that the energy, the focus, the results over the last four years are due to no other reason than your extraordinary leadership of this council,” he said.

In his remarks, the vice president commended Fayemi who was attending his last NEC meeting.

More so, at the meeting, NEC received briefings on the need for states to adopt strategies to step up service delivery in the grassroots and also on how to mitigate flood.
