Mercy Johnson Appointed by Gov. Bello as SSA on Entertainment

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has appointed Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie, senior special assistant (SSA) on entertainment, arts and culture.

The 32-year-old wife and mother was appointed along 53 other senior special assistants to the governor into various offices in the administration.

A statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Mrs. Ayoade Folashade Arike, made available to the media on Tuesday said the appointments take effect from April 1, 2017.

The rationale for the additional appointees at the state level, the statement read, is to “plug identified gaps in service delivery, fill key positions with the right people and to broaden inclusiveness in governance by bringing people from more communities on board.”

Born in Lagos to a former naval officer, Mercy represents Okehi Local Government Area of Kogi State in Bello’s list of SSAs. Congrats to her!
