Profile of the Executive Governor

ALHAJI ABUBAKAR SANI BELLO established himself as an accomplished entrepreneur, following the footprints of his father, retired Colonel Sani Bello, a military administrator and founder of successful business conglomerates. As the eldest son of the enterprising family, the young Bello became conscious of his familial role in the expansion and sustenance of his family’s glory, and thus he began to shoulder challenging responsibilities early in life. 

Born on December 17, 1967 in Kontagora, Niger State, his growing up and schooling was defined by the career of his soldier-father, acquiring his earliest education at the famous St. Louis Primary School, Kano from 1974 to 1979 at the time his father served as the Military Governor of Kano State. He proceeded to the Nigeria Military School, Zaria, in 1980, earning General Certificate of Education (SSCE/GCE) in 1985.

 

His pursuits of a place and mark in Nigeria’s competitive private sector in which his family had long established a reputation began immediately. Exploring his first post-school opportunities at the shipping department of Offshores Pipelines International (OPI), he gathered an entrepreneurial momentum for diversified ventures in non-Oil sector, establishing a presence in banking and finance, aviation, telecommunication, travel agency and healthcare management services.

 

He adapted to these tasking responsibilities quickly, having already been used to a role that’s already a family tradition and polished by an academic background in a discipline that had broadened and developed his managerial perspicacity. He served in different top-management capacities, having garnered more experience, building an enviable track record from 1994 to 2009, when he took a break from the private sector to replicate his achievements in his home State, on being appointed Commissioner, Ministry of Investment, Commerce & Cooperative by Governor Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu. He left after just a year.

 

Alhaji Bello was Alternate Director​, Broad Bank​​ (1994 – 2000); Board Member, ​Broad Bank​ (2000 – 2005); Alternate Director, ​MTN​ Nigeria (2000 – Aug 2009); Chairman/CEO, Millennium Travels & Tours ​​(2000 – Aug 2009); Director, Dornier Aviation Nig. AIEP (DANA)​​(Jan 2007 - Aug 2007); Chairman/CEO, Millennium Air (​​2002 – Aug 2009); Chairman/CEO, Heritage Hospitality Services LTD (Jan 2004 - Aug 2009); Chairman, Prudent Healthcare Management LTD (​​February 2008 - August 2009); and Director, Investment Center LTD (ICL)​ (​2007 – 2009).

On leaving office as Commissioner to manage his private businesses, Governor Bello launched a widely endorsed bid to replace Governor Aliyu. His Gubernatorial ambition, with its promise of restoring a new order of governance in Niger State earned massive supports and commendations across the state, and among both the youth and the old.

 

Aside from his private life of philanthropy, his humanitarian causes were pursued as a Director on the Board of the SANBELL FOUNDATION, a non-profit NGO, which is a pet project of Colonel Sani Bello (Rtd) to give back to the society.

 

Bello is married to Dr. Amina Abubakar Bello, a Consultant Gynecologist currently working with the Barau Dikko Specialist Hospital in Kaduna, and they have three children: Muhammad, Abdulsalam and Maryam.

 

His hobbies include travelling, playing lawn tennis and like being in the company of friends and associates.
