Youth Corps member appointed commissioner in Kwara State

26-year-old Youth Corps member appointed commissioner in Kwara

 

 

Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq pictured above, has appointed a serving 26-year-old female Youth Corps member, Miss Joana Nnazua Kolo as a commissioner in the state.

 

Kolo's name was among the four female commissioner-nominees forwarded to the Kwara State House of Assembly by the governor today Tuesday September 17th.

 

Kolo, the youngest commissioner-nominee in the state’s history, is a 2018 graduate of Library Science from the Kwara State University (KWASU). If confirmed, she would be Nigeria’s youngest commissioner, taking the trophy from Oyo State’s 27-year-old Oluwaseun Fakorede.

 

Kolo is still undergoing her National Youths Service Corps 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.
