The National Council of Women Societies( NCWS) in collaboration with Global Gold Consult has nominated Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello as “the most gender-sensitive governor in Nigeria.”

The Governor will be decorated as a ‘HE 4 SHE’, which bestows on him the honour as a Goodwill Ambassador.

The organisers said the nomination is in recognition of the purposeful and conscious effort of Bello’s administration to place women in sensitive and strategic positions in the governance structure of Kogi.

According to them: “It is on record that the Governor is the only one amongst his colleagues with a female Aide de Camp (ADC) in Nigeria.

“The Secretary to the Government of the State and Head of Civil Service are women. He ensured that all the Vice-Chairmen and Council Leaders in each of the 21 Local Government Areas are women.

“There are a minimum of three women as Councilors in each of the Local Government Areas.

“There are more than 70 women in positions of authority in the State which include but not limited to Director General, Managing Directors, Chairpersons of Board, Commissions, and Agencies.

“Some are Commissioners, Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants, Personal Assistants, and Special Assistants.

“The Government of Alhaji Yahaya Bello has gone far beyond the 35% affirmative action for women and has made Kogi State a pacesetter and a model in gender inclusiveness.”

The award presentation and decoration ceremony hold at an interactive dinner for women in leadership from Kogi State on 16th January 2021 at the Glass House of Kogi State Government House by 6:00 pm.
