The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) Governance Share Fairs are regional events periodically organised by the Forum to promote peer-learning, knowledge sharing and facilitate face-to-face networking. The share fairs make provisions for a knowledge market place for States to showcase their achievements, share undertakings and also hold informal breakout groups to further discuss issues affecting participants in their respective State Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
The Governance Share Fairs are designed to:
- Provide opportunities for multiple parties to broadcast their achievements, exhibit their products, and market new programmes to donors, policymakers, other institutes and potential partners.
- Facilitate face-to-face networking and promote exchange on common agendas
- Help people benefit from each other's experiences
- Stimulate interest in future collaboration and the development of new programmes.
Since its inception, three share fairs have been held. They include the South East Governance Share fair in Enugu, South West Governance Share fair in Lagos and Northern States Governance Share fair in Abuja.
