Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, recently spoke on some of the reasons why Nigeria need a professional in leadership positions.
He called for the engagement of such technocrats in leadership positions of the country to achieve good governance.
The appeal was made yesterday in Abuja while delivering a remark at the First National Conference for experts in the All Progressives Congress, APC, themed “The Role of Professionals in Politics and Nation Building”.
Represented by Mr Moses Okezie-Okafor, the Director-General, Research and Development in the state, he said the event and theme were timely.

The governor said that it was about time career persons took more than a passing interest in the affairs of political parties, particularly the APC, which is Nigeria’s governing party.
“There is no person better suited to leadership like those of us who have known and endured the discipline of committing to the course of study for years until we qualified.” He said.
