PGF Sets Legislative Agenda for APC Governments


The secretariat of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) is set to drive the legislative agenda of governments in APC states at a Legislative parley scheduled for September 14-16, 2015 in Katsina State.

This agenda setting parley will discuss issues around three (3) broad topics, which are; Introduction to the Change Agenda: the APC Manifesto; The Legislature and Good Governance; and Inclusive Governance and the Participation of Women in the Nigerian Legislature. The meeting will bring together leaders of the Party, the Progressive Governors, and APC leaders in at the National and the States Assemblies as well as Development Partners and Civil Society Groups.

The decision for this meeting was borne out of one of the recommendations at the 2015 Legislative Steering Committee Meeting held in Abuja at the Katsina State Government Lodge on Monday, August 10, 2015, which was to institutionalise an interaction between APC State Governors and APC leaders in both the National and States’ Assemblies.

The overall objective of this parley is to reach a consensus on legislative activities and legislative performance benchmark in all APC States.
