The governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello has asked all his appointees to submit a report of their ”stewardship” in the last election according to a report by TheCable.

He polled 406,222 votes to defeat Musa Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who secured 189,704, and Natasha Akpoti of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), who got 9,482.
The governor won in 12 local government areas out of the 21 in the state.
In a memo entitled, ‘submission of your stewardship to New Dimension administration’, signed by Folashade Ayoade, secretary to the state government and seen by TheCable, the governor directed all heads of ministries, departments and agencies to submit a report detailing their ”stewardship”.
”Following the decision reached at the state executive council meeting held on Wednesday 27 November.
