Mr. Abu said that the Commissioner has distinguished himself among his colleagues as a silent and great achiever, whose track of indelible achievements has made the state proud.

The Commissioner dedicated the award to His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Bello, for giving him the privilege to serve his people at the state, and for making the education sector his topmost priority.
Hon. Wemi stressed that the recorded achievements in the education sector would not have been possible without the full support of the Governor, as well as the commitment and dedication of the staff and management of the ministry.
He emphasised that the Governor has made education his number one focus thereby increasing the annual budgetary allocation to 30% beyond the 26% UNESCO benchmark for education, hence the tremendous achievements being recorded in the sector.
He added that all the tertiary institutions in the state have had all their programmes accredited by their various regulatory bodies, under the able leadership of Gov. Yahaya Bello.
He assured that many greater achievements would be recorded in the state education sector, saying the Governor was determined and committed to making Kogi the best in education in the Northern States.
