Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has been named Politician of the Year by a Uk-based media group, TheNigerian News.
A statement by the management signed by Toby Prince said Governor Bello’s incredible leadership in handling insecurity, unemployment, poverty, infrastructure deficit and many others endeared him to its 10-man committee.
“Governor Bello’s radical innovations have since cast him in the mould of those leadership postulations which early thinkers propounded,” the statement said.
“Under the New Direction Agenda, he has signposted a new trajectory and leadership model which has navigated the state for the overall benefit of the people. Bello has run an all-inclusive dispensation where holistic synergy has been deployed to move the state forward. These days, mobile young men and women are the ones running the affairs of the state unlike in the past when they were mere hallelujah boys for the political operators.
