Yahaya Bello Admits 2023 Remains Best Time For Nigerian Youths To Takeover Leadership Role

Governor Yahaya Bello

ABEOKUTA - The Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has admitted that, 2023 general elections is the best period for Nigerian youths to take over the presidency in the 2023 general election.

Bello submitted that the youth must be courageous to wrestle and take over the mantle of leadership in Nigeria.

He spoke at Ijebu Ode, Ogun State during a conference themed "Youths Own The Power" organized by the Afenifere For Collective Transformation (ACT).

The Kogi state governor spoke through the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mrs Folasade Ayoade, who led the state government delegation to the event.

He submitted that a number of older generations of leaders assumed offices at young age, hence, youths should be given a chance to rule Nigeria in 2023.

The governor, however, noted that unless youths are courageous to wrestle "nobody will hand over power to them."    

He said "We all need to know that all our leaders came to power when they were young. They were all youths. So, why would they not give the youths the chance to take over?  Ideally, they should say since we came to power as youths, let's allow the youths to have the power.

"But I need to let you know my fellow youths that will take it. We will take it. They will not give you. The truth is that they will not call you to come and take the power. So, we need courageous youths like Yahaya Bello. We need bold youth like Yahaya Bello. We need somebody that has the heart of youth and women that feel what we feel to take over."

The Director General of ACT, Tolu Ajayi declared support of youths in Southwest for Bello, describing him as "detribalized Nigeria."

Ajayi said Bello's administration favours the younger generation as "the vast majority of his cabinet members are youths."
