Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state has the qualities needed to improve on the achievements of President Muhammmadu Buhari and make Nigeria better if elected president in 2023, the Kogi state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said.
Hon. Abdullahi Bello, the state chairman of the party who disclosed this in a chat with Daily Independent on Sunday said having worked closely with the governor, he believed he can do better if given a higher responsibility.
He said Nigerian youths who are impressed with the governor’s achievements in Kogi have been going across the country with the message that they need a youthful president like Governor Yahaya Bello as the number one citizen of Nigeria in 2023.
Bello who said the governor’s achievements in the areas of security, road infrastructure, healthcare and education can be replicated on a larger scale if elected president, added that Nigerian youths and women are at the forefront of seeing him succeed President Buhari in 2023.
“He said: “As a man saddled with the responsibility of party administration in Kogi state, I believe we have done so well with the support of His Excellency, the governor, having won all the senate seats, 7 out of 9 House of Representatives and of course, the presidential election and the governorship seat, the governor in his own wisdom is doing wonderfully well”.
“He is doing very well in the area of security, education, healthcare, economy and other areas. If given the chance, he can do better because today in Nigeria, one of the things Nigerians are clamouring for is a very good security architecture so that our lives and properties can be secured.
“People saw the quality in the governor and they believe he can turn things around.
“He is an ardent believer in President Buhari. He is a Buharist to the core and we believe that he can build on what the President has put on the ground. As the state chairman, having worked closely with him, I think he has the quality to turn things around if given the opportunity. Insha Allah”.
“Let me add that this is not the time for campaigns. Of course, the governor is not the one insisting he wants to run for the presidency. People saw the quality of leadership in him and they ask him to run. The agitation is everywhere, especially in his own constituency which is the youth”.
“The youths are agitating that if one of their own can provide these leadership qualities in Kogi, then they should clear the centre for him. I think this is why the agitation is everywhere,, especially among youths and women” .
