How amazing! Out of 16 names nominated as commissioners in Kwara, 9 are women

This might just be the first in Nigeria! Nine women were among the 16 names nominated as commissioners by Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

Chief Press Secretary to the Governor Mr. Rafiu Ajakaye said that their names had been forwarded to the House of Assembly for clearance.

He said with the nine women on the list, the female gender would represent 56. 25 per cent, while men would be 43. 75 per cent of the coming executive council (exco).

“With the inclusion of five women on the list of the fresh nominees sent to the Assembly, Governor AbdulRazaq has gone down in history as Nigeria’s most gender-friendly governor,” Ajakaye said.

The women nominees include Saadatu Modibbo Kawu (Ilorin South); Joana Kolo (Edu); Arinola Fatima Lawal (Ilorin East); Aishat Ahman Patigi (Patigi) and Afolabi Adenike Khairat (Ifelodun).
