Yahaya Bello Leadership Styles

Let the spirit of unity guide you clannishly. Let oneness be prioritized. Let reconciliation of indigenes be considered. Listening ears will do so many favours as it is never too late to learn goodness and Godliness in Politics.

Be dogged in decision taking or making process, be rugged in tackling insecurities, be pertinacious in all ways that will make your entity the best, be restless untill you achieve unbreakable records, humility and respect to all will earn long lasting peace.

The women inclusiveness in Politics of the Grassroot that is unprecedented in the history of Nigeria and now happening in Kogi State must never come to an end.

With women in all rooms in LGAs where decisions are being made will enable complete consideration of all genders. Women have been given the opportunity to speak for their fellow Nigerians and Kogites and women will be heard.

My sincere and candid idea suggested to the Women in Government today and those who will love to become part of them in future is that loyalty in Politics is key to inner inclusiveness.

Let these my women never lose focus in fighting the necessary battle, let them have the capability to face challenges of fame that will grant them unstainable and unremovable positive impacts in lives of many other women.

For the inspired, for the aspirants and the gingered women that are youthful and positively useful in changing our old Political ways in the State may you all continue to see good reasons to partake in Politics.
