The current Nigerian governors who have endeavored to end well and paid the dividends of democracy, as outlined in their campaign promises before they come to power, have a lot going on at stake.
A number of key parameters such as security, education, wealth creation, job opportunities, health care and sustainable infrastructure development are commonly used to determine the performance of state governors
In these areas of governance, some governors across the country have done well enough to deserve not just a mention but a commendation.
