About the Nigeria Governors' Forum.

The Nigeria Governors' Forum (NGF) is a non-partisan association that brings together the elected governors of the country's 36 states to promote unity, good governance, better understanding and cooperation among the states, as well as a healthy and beneficial relationship between the states and other tiers of government.

The NGF was inspired by the United States-based National Democratic Institute and the Canadian-based Forum of Federations, and is modeled on the American National Governors' Association. It was established in 1999 following a multi-party conference of all the 36 democratically elected State Governors.

NGF Governance Issue Brief - The States Peer Review Mechanism

The State Peer Review Mechanism (SPRM) is a unique innovation by the Nigeria Governors' Forum (NGF). It is designed to assist States to foster good governance and accelerate the pace of their development through periodic reviews of progress in the implementation of their development policies, plans and programmes. This would be achieved by sharing experiences among States and reinforcing the commendable and innovative practices unveiled in the process. Through participation in the peer review process, State Governors are able to learn from their peers about innovative and good practices that they could adapt and adopt in their respective States.

NGF Health Issue brief - Polio Eradication

The Nigeria Governors' Forum (NGF), in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, announced an 'Immunization Leadership Challenge' in September 2011 to stimulate the increased awareness and involvement of State Governors in polio eradication efforts. The overall objective of this Challenge is to fast track achievement of the global milestone of interrupting further transmission of the wild polio virus in Nigeria.

The programme will recognize those Executive Governors whose states pass a pre-defined threshold to improve routine immunisation coverage and end polio. The states that meet the threshold criteria will be awarded a US$500,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to support their top health priorities.
