The Stylish Olori was the cynosure of all eyes as she was looking elegant and bright like a well-polished diamond. Fitted in a White laced with Pink flower-patterned flowing gown with a white headgear, the attire sat well on her so much like she was conceived with it. When she sauntered into the hall in the company of her friends, the paparazzi camera kept shuttering to catch a glimpse of her fashion mixture. To the amazement of many, she also rocked the popular ‘Judith Leiber clutch’ Multimillion Naira bag to compliment her ravishing look. Her looks were made in heaven as she also wore a charming smile moving from the table to greet those who came to honour her husband.

Olori Hadiza loves the good thing of life. If you see her jewelry chest, you would be amazed. It’s worth Millions of Dollars. She has an eye for fashion long before she married and now that she is married to a stylish king, her flair for fashion has doubled.”

Owning to her pedigree being born in a family of academics with her dad as a professor, she is not only brilliant, her composure, poise, sartorial elegance, fashion taste and uncommon aura puts her in a league of her own. When she speaks, you would see the confidence and finesse backed with refined style. During her formative years, the Zoology Graduate from the University of Ibadan has always wanted to keep touching lives via advocacy and philanthropy with a special interest in women and children.

With vast experience, he was in charge of the Energy sector and Public Sector, responsible for managing accounts of several multinational oil and Gas companies and maintaining Public sector relationships. He became a shining star in the banking firmament when He joined Zenith International Bank Plc in 2005. While he was in the bank, his growth was astronomic. He climbed the ladder of success from a Branch head, zonal Head Public Sector, Deputy General Manager and Zonal Head. With his robust background in the banking sector and corporate finance, the graduate of management Studies from the Usman Danfodio University, Sokoto was rewarded with an appointment in 2016 by President Muhammadu Buhari as Executive Director of Finance and Administration of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA). After performing excellently well, he was appointed in May 2021 as Acting Managing Director of the agency after his successor was suspended.

Since he assumed as the head honcho of the agency, the growth recorded has been tremendous. The public leadership graduate from Harvard Kennedy School, USA, infused a different touch to the way things are being done which lead to his confirmation by President Buhari on the 15th of February 2022. “Under his watch, he secured leakages in generated revenue which lead to a spike in the growth of the Agency’s Internally Generated Revenue. He also ensured improvement in operational efficiencies that led to a significant increase in container traffic to Onne Port, Warri, Calabar and Rivers port respectively to ease the congestion at the Apapa port.”

Despite his giant strides that are quite evident to all sundry, his detractors are still hell-bent on ensuring they pull him down with negative media reportage by some sections of the media to distract him from functioning at a full capacity. A close source divulged that; Bello Koko is unperturbed and unbothered by the negative misrepresentation his detractors are feeding the public with. It’s quite evident that some people are afraid and envious of his resounding success within the few months he had taken over and turned the fortune of the Agency around. He is currently in Umurah performing lesser Hajj and praying for the growth of the Agency and the country. All he is saddled with is to ensure the NPA meets his primary function and also continues to function in full capacity.“
