The National Youth Alliance (NYA) has applauded the All Progressives Congress and its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, for the choice of Governor Yahaya Bello as the national youth coordinator of its campaign council.
In a statement signed by its President, Samson Onwe, on Sunday, the group said Tinubu, by this action, has demonstrated that he is a friend of the youths who is ever ready to develop and build the country’s massive young population.
Describing Bello as the perfect man for the job, Onwe said the governor’s remarkable leadership traits and achievements in Kogi have prepared him for the assignment.
According to him, Governor Bello’s capacity, intellect and wide acceptability especially among the younger generation will be crucial for the ruling party.
Onwe said Bello has impacted positively in the lives of millions of youths across the nation and this influence, network and grassroots reach will benefit the ruling party cone 2023.
He added that Asiwaju Tinubu and his running mate, Kassim Shettima are assured of the support of Nigerian youths.
The National Youth Alliance added that Tinubu means well for the nation and has shown just a tip of things to come.
Onwe said the former Lagos State Governor is already assembling the brightest minds like Bello, translating that he will run a youth-friendly government.
The group, therefore, charged Bello to use his solid structures to deliver votes for Tinubu in 2023.
The National Youth Alliance, however, expressed its total loyalty to the Kogi State Governor, adding that millions of youths are already on the side of the APC.
