Ekiti State Governor, Mr Biodun Oyebanji and his wife, Dr Olayemi Oyebanji will be attending an induction programme for newly elected and returning governors as well as their spouses this week in Abuja.
The programme, which is being put together by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum ( NGF), is scheduled to hold at the Presidential Banquet Hall, State House, Abuja.
Yinka Oyebode Special Adviser ( Media) to the Governor said the week-long induction programme scheduled to hold between Sunday, May 14th to Wednesday May 17th, is aimed at building the capacity of state Governors to establish, manage and set priorities using best practices and leveraging on tools of their trade for greater and more effective governance.
According to a release by the NGF, the induction programme is aimed at deepening the knowledge and skills of the governors on the principles of governance as well as helping them transit from campaigning to governing.
The second part of the induction programme, which is tagged Governors’ Wives Summit, is designed as a forum to strategize on how the activities of the Governors’ spouses can best complement the governors’ roles in promoting good governance.
The programme is also aimed at helping the Governors’ wives transit effectively to their new roles as First Ladies.
