2023: I will not disappoint you, says Yahaya Bello

The Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello has assured Traditional, political, religious stakeholders from Kebbi and Sokoto states that he will yield to their calls for him to run for president in 2023.

Bello stated this on Sunday when he received the delegations at the Kogi state’s Governor’s Lodge in Abuja. The Governor also alleged a deliberate attempt by some persons who are supposed to support President Muhammadu Buhari but pulled his government down instead.

Bello noted that those who were supposed to support and advise the president are pulling him down by their actions, utterances, inactions and by their silence

Bello, while noting that the clamour for youth to become president come 2023 was right, advised Nigerians to vote for a youth with capacity, zeal, integrity, determination and impeccable records.

“We always ask that youths should come on board. As much as we are saying elders should go home and rest. There are some elders who have the capacity, are passionate, patriotic and ready to sacrifice for this country. We need youth with capacity, zeal, integrity, determination and impeccable records. Going to 2023, our records will speak for us,” he said.

Earlier in his remarks, the leader of the delegation, Murtala Kaoje, said the visit was to pledge their support for the governor’s presidential ambition.
