News Agency of Nigeria
Youths in the North-Central Geopolitical Zone have endorsed Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi for President in 2023, claiming that he is the only hope for the country’s longings for unity, security, and economic progress.
The youths, under the banner of the Yahaya Bello Network (YBN), made the announcement at a Town Hall meeting in Lokoja on Tuesday, which was attended by tens of thousands of people.
They stated that the country’s unity, protection of lives and property, and economic success are all critical and can only be achieved with strong leadership.
Alhaji Abdulrahman Muhammed, also known as Abdul Amart Mai Kwashewa, the YBN’s Convener and National Chairman, stated that the Network is working to see that the ‘Not Too Young To Run’ Act is implemented and that Governor Bello runs for President in 2023.
Muhammed stated that the governor had shown himself to be a strong leader in Kogi and so is capable of taking the country out of the woods and delivering it from its myriad issues.
He said that God had blessed the people of Kogi State by giving them a leadership gem as Governor Bello, saying, “God has blessed this state with a pragmatic leader and the youngest governor in Nigeria.”
Commending the governor for ensuring gender equality in his administration, Muhammed said, “I have never seen a leader that cares so much about the welfare of youths.
“He has the largest number of youths and women in his administration more than any other state in this country,” he said.
Kwashewa commended Governor Bello’s stance on the COVID-19, and security of the state, saying, “There was crisis of insecurity in the state before he took the mantle of leadership and today, Kogi is one of the safest states in the country.”
Also addressing, Alhaji Abdullahi Bello, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Kogi State Chairman, said that history is being created in Nigerian politics, with the young now putting their fate into their own hands by supporting one of their own.
Abdullahi stated that a Yahaya Bello administration will provide enough reward for hard work, excellence, and dedication, noting that the country’s leadership has lacked a solid incentive system in the past.
Alhaji Ahmed Mohammed, Deputy Speaker of the Kogi House of Assembly, praised the YBN convener for the group’s growth across Nigeria’s states.
He said, “Our priority as Kogi people is to see Governor Yahaya Bello becoming the President because of the quality of leadership in him.
“With him, the Nigerian dream will come true. Our body language, thinking and dream is Yahaya Bello and our dreams shall come true and become a reality.”
He said, “We are grateful to God for giving Bello to us at this time.”
The Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Dr Folashade Arike Ayoade, hailed Governor Bello’s ambition as opportune in light of the country’s current issues.
According to the Nigerian News Agency (NAN), the Town Hall gathering also saw the inauguration of the YBN’s Kogi State Executive Council.
