Appoint Bagudu as SGF for his administrative skills – Group urges President- elect, Ahmed-Tinubu 

The League of Progressive Groups in Nigeria (LPGN), an NGO, has called on President-Elect, Bola Ahmed-Tinubu, to consider Gov. Atiku Bagudu for the position of Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) for his administrative skills. 

The National Coordinator of LPGN, Bashar Buhari, gave the advice while briefing journalists in Birnin Kebbi on Sunday.

“We wrote a letter and addressed to the  President- elect, and congratulated him on his well -deserved victory at the polls.

” The letter also emphasized the importance of assembling a competent and experienced team to assist him in delivering good governance to the citizens. 

“The LPGN also recommended Sen. Bagudu for the position of SGF, because of his experience, loyalty to the party, and instrumental role in the emergence of Sen. Tinubu.

“The advice as because of Bagudu’s achievements as the Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) in uniting APC governors, using his influence to mobilize his colleagues to demand power shift to the south.

“He also served as the Chairman and Chief Returning Officer of the APC 2022 Convention/Primary Elections that returned Tinubu as the Presidential candidate of the APC demonstrate his organizational skills, administrative acumen, and commitment to the party’s success,” he said.

Buhari added that Bagudu had always distinguished himself as a true Patriot with Pan-Nigerian disposition, evident in the way he look beyond the boarders of Kebbi state to advocate for a collective approach to development in order to accelerate economic growth.

“It is on record that under his stewardship, the state entered a partnership with the Lagos State Government on Rice Farming and Processing, similar partnerships were arranged with other sub-national governments to drive a common sustainable agenda. 

“This experiences when properly harnesses by the appointment of Sen. Bagudu will assist the next government in actualizing the Rice and Food Sufficiency drive of the outgoing administration in tandem with the APC manifesto.

“Furthermore, Bagudu’s sterling performance as Governor of Kebbi State for two consecutive terms is a testament to his ability to deliver results.

    This is bullshit from a false group. Appointing Sen Atiku Bagudu as SGF is the beginning of misfortune for Tinubu. Bring someone better who is not corrupt and has a track record of performance.
