“In Kogi State, we want to have excellence, we want to serve our people the best we can.  We want to have peace and security, we want to have fairness, equity and justice.
“We want to balance everything we do in Kogi State.  We want not only to include women, but to have women as partners in progress.
“We want to have effective management of human and material resources for the maximum benefit of our people.  As such, we had a decision to make, the choice to get reliable hands or not.
The Governor said: “In Kogi State, we choose to have trusted hands, and indeed if you are looking for trustworthy, loyal and committed hands, follow the path of women.
“That's why today, from my SSG, to the chief of duty, to my ADC, to all the many wonderful women, we decided to go for them.
“I want to assure you that you are representing women as they should be and we are getting the desired results in the state of Kogi.
According to him, we are having peace and security.  We are having full inclusion, we are having the desired result that we want in the Kogi State today, grace of God.
“This is what we want to transfer nationally and across Africa.
“That's why I said that a success story is meeting a success story.  Your Excellency, you are successful and will continue to be successful,” Bello said.
