It is once again a dream come true for us as an administration,” the Governor said in a statement.
Hajia Mohammed was until her appointment a career officer at the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).
“On behalf of the people and government of Kwara State, I congratulate the two women. I specifically congratulate our respected elder statesman and a leading Otoge campaigner, Alhaji LAK Jimoh whose daughter, Hajiah Mohammed, would be representing our state at a very significant international position,” AbdulRazaq said.
He prayed the Almighty God to guide the new appointees in the national assignments.
