Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has forwarded the names of four women to the State House of Assembly as commissioner-nominees, including a 26-year-old Joana Kolo.
Miss Joana Kolo, the youngest commissioner-nominee in the state’s history, is a 2018 graduate of Library Science from the Kwara State University (KWASU). A grassroots mobiliser, Miss Kolo is an ardent advocate of community development.
If confirmed, she would be Nigeria’s youngest commissioner, taking the trophy from Oyo State’s 27-year-old Oluwaseun Fakorede.
Miss Joana Kolo is still having her National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) programme in Jigawa, where she is teaching at Model Boarding Junior Secondary School Guri. .
Her screening for the cabinet seat would hold after she rounds off her NYSC service in the next two weeks.
