Rashida Bello spreads her wings

For the average Kogi woman, the First Lady of Kogi State, Madam Rashida Bello, is like the coming of rain after a prolonged drought. Such is her impact in the life of women and the young in the state in just a short time. Everywhere she goes, she is greeted with songs by happy and excited women who have felt first-hand the impact she is determined to make on their lives.

No sooner had the youthful wife of Governor Yahaya Bello assumed office than she sprang into action with the launch of the Kogi Women and Youth Advancement Foundation (KOWYAF). It is an initiative aimed at helping women and the youth with means that will make them become self-reliant and gainfully employed indigenes of the Confluence State.

The career accountant has also established health centres in the three senatorial zones of the state to take care of the masses’ pressing health needs. And while some others in her position would stop there and pat themselves on the back for a job well done, Madam Rashida is not one to rest on her oars. Only recently, she established DROP, a programme aimed at helping women and young ones in the hard-to-reach parts of the state.

Her numerous empowerment programmes have not only earned her the gratitude of the people, they have also drawn international recognition. Just recently, she was honoured with an award of excellence at the International Women Conference in Dallas, USA.
