On December 15th, 2016, the Commissioner for Environment, Hon. Mrs. Rosemary Ojochenemi Osikoya through the New Direction Government of His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Bello announced that the state government intends to redefine the environmental sector in Kogi State via activation of 21st century application of contemporary practises to reflect national and global expectations in the sector.
The New Direction Government has therefore signed another victory for Kogites with the inauguration and commissioning to service of 100 gallant Forest Guards today, 7th March, 2017, to man our ecological resources. With exponential effects of this promise kept, employment opportunities have been created for 100 resident Kogi indigenes, which would possibly impact the economy of the state, positively upgrade the living standard of the guards and reduce unemployment in the state; while the sector actively contributes to the Internally Generated Revenue, (IGR) of the state for onward utilisation for all Kogites.
It is therefore a victory of inclusive governance that strives to revitalise all sectors of Kogi economy through resuscitation and activation of moribund areas that could have been of immense benefit to the people of Kogi State.
We wish to thank the good people of Kogi State for the opportunity to serve. This should also reiterate the intention of His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Bello to reposition the state towards enviable standards.
Remember, we are taking steps with ONLY your support.
Kogi is Rising!
