The Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), comprising 16 state governors who are members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), unanimously elected Imo State Governor HE Owelle Rochas Okorocha as Chairman of the Forum.
The election of HE Okorocha is in furtherance of the commitment of the 16 Progressive Governors to strengthen democratic governance structures in the country with the overriding goal of rescuing Nigeria and facilitating the emergence of accountable leadership at all levels led by APC.
HE Okorocha will provide leadership to PGF to realise the collective vision of the Progressive Governors to engender expeditiously exemplary human development Programmes and policies in all APC states. Considering how consistently the PDP has attacked the foundations of our democracy, and the subsequent erosion of Nigerians’ hard-won freedoms, the PGF under HE Okorocha's leadership pledges to mobilize citizens towards expanding and deepening democratic structures by focusing on initiatives to guarantee the development of participatory governance structures as well as the guarantee of transparent, credibthee elections and the results reflect the votes of Nigerian people.
We urge Nigerians to support the initiatives of our Progressive Governors under the leadership of HE Owelle Rochas Okorocha; Nigeria will be great again.
