Governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello has called on Nigerians to join hands with him liberate the country from the challenges confronting the nation. Bello made the call while speaking with a national newspaper, Daily Independent, at the weekend.
The second term governor said he has what it takes to provide purposeful leadership and good governance for Nigeria if elected as president in the 2023 general elections.
Bello urged Nigerians to ignore the antics of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with an assurance that he is ready to lead and provide quality leadership that is required in the country. He commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his efforts so far since assumption of office in May 2015.
He stated that the president is a kind-hearted leader who means well for the country and has genuine interests of Nigerians in all his dealings. He said he is in the 2023 presidency race to consolidate on the achievements of President Buhari.
“I want everyone to join me in the struggle to liberate this country. We must seize this golden opportunity to save our nation.
“Let us do our bit to support the current administration and join hands with President Muhammadu Buhari to save this country. Those that are leading today, I can assure you that apart from Mr. President and very few ones, others don’t have the interest of the country at heart. They don’t care about us and that is the truth,” he said.
