Mercy Johnson bags new Appointed from Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi

Posted: 15 March, 2017 at 09:00 am

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

The Google's Most Searched Nollywood Celebrity in December 2013 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 on Tuesday said the appointments take effect from April 1, 2017.


The rationale for the additional appointees at the state level, the statement said, 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 in Bello's list of SSAs.

The 32-year old is married to Edo indigene, Prince Odianosen Okojie.
