Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has nominated and forwarded the names of four women to the State House of Assembly as commissioner-nominees, including a 26-year-old corps member, Joana Nnazua Kolo who hails from Edu Local Government Area of the state.
Miss Kolo, the youngest commissioner-nominee in the state’s history, is a 2018 graduate of Library Science from the Kwara State University (KWASU).
She is currently participating in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme in Jigawa, where she is teaching at Model Boarding Junior Secondary School Guri.
If confirmed, she would be Nigeria’s youngest commissioner, taking the record away from Oyo State’s 27-year-old Oluwaseun Fakorede.
Her screening for the cabinet seat would hold after she rounds off her NYSC service in the next two weeks.
