UN Urges Governors-elect to Fulfill Campaign Promises: A Call for Effective Leadership

The United Nations (UN) has emphasized the importance of governors-elect delivering on their campaign promises once they assume office.


During the 2023 Nigeria Governors’ Forum induction, UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed stressed the need for governors to prioritize the fulfillment of their commitments to the people.

The Importance of Delivering Campaign Promises:

Mohammed highlighted that the first term of office passes swiftly, and the second term even faster.

Therefore, governors-elect should ensure the delivery of their campaign promises before their tenure concludes.
