Best Governors for 2019, top-5: do you agree ?

As it very clear that we have thirty-six states in Nigeria as if today, the governors that head the administration of each of these states cannot be said to be performing in the same way or manner. The ranking is hereby put in place to know who are those that believe Tobe the most competent in the view of the people.

(1). Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.

He was chosen because of his decision to keep governance lean, doing away with large convoys and entourage that act as drains on meager resources. He would be seen often commuting in very functional vehicles with himself behind the wheels, demystifying the big-man syndrome often associated with the average Nigerian politician. People were also thinking attracted by his institutionalized concern to lift the masses from poverty through Executive bills and orders in respect of social investment programmes.

(2). Sanwo-Olu gets a second mention in two months for applying himself diligently to the task of building a digital and resilient economy. It has been noticed, the seeming slow start to governance but commend the consistent progress to achieve set objectives. Driving the long term goals are six pillars built around Transportation, Health, Education & Technology, Making Lagos a 21st Century Economy, Entertainment and Security ( T.H.E.M.E.S ).

(3). Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State makes the Top 5 governors in Nigeria for his promotion of open governance, with the finances of the state placed in the public domain.

We take cognizance of the publication of the state’s annual budget and its performance for public monitoring and scrutiny. This action of his, is capable of promoting transparency, integrity in the conduct of government business and ultimately confidence of the governed.

The revitalisation of the state’s transport company catches people's attention. The new lease of life at Delta Line, courtesy of a Public Private Partnership between the state government and GIGM, a mobility platform, sets the tone for quality service delivery.

(4). Governor Nasir El-Rufai gets top scores in September ranking review. The former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) raked in size-able goodwill for a symbolic action capable of repositioning the educational sector in Kaduna and beyond.

It's been noted that the Governor’s fulfilment of a promise to enroll his son in a public school in the state, and acknowledge that the action is an invitation to his peers to impact the educational landscape and reverse the poor perception held of public schools and institutions.

(5). Abdulahi Ganduje of Kano State is a Top 5 pick for the month of September for his efforts at ensuring that out-of-school children in the state find their way back to class rooms.

We consider the intervention in the education space a worthy investment, especially if pursued with a clarity of purpose, sincerity and passion.

The purpose of this note is nothing but to ensure good government among the leaders in the various states in Nigeria.
