All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has appointed Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State as the National Youth Coordinator of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council.
The appointment was conveyed in a letter addressed to Yahaya Bello, signed by the APC standard flagbearer.
Tinubu, in the letter, stressed that Bello, who was an aspirant in the party’s presidential primaries, held in May 2022, deserved the appointment, owing to his impressive political achievements and the exemplary leadership he had demonstrated as governor of his state and as a party member.
The former governor of Lagos State, Tinubu, added that he was confident that the Kogi Governor would do his best in the new responsibility given him so that the party could run an effective, message-driven campaign, which would lead to victory in the 2023 Presidential election.
Recall that multitudes of youths and women across the six geo-political zones of Nigeria, had, during the build-up to the APC presidential primary election, demonstrated their strong support for the Kogi Governor, owing to his youth- and women-friendly policies.
“We are grateful that you have joined our campaign team. We know you will do your utmost in this new responsibility so we conduct an effective, message -driven campaign leading us to victory in the 2023 Presidential election.
“Together, not only can we ensure victory for our party in the February 2023 election but we shall also move Nigeria along the path of national greatness by building on the achievements of our party and the President Muhammadu Buhari administration in providing progressive good governance to Nigerians. We wish you God’s speed and guidance.
“Congratulations. Please, accept the assurances of our highest respect and regards always.”
In his acceptance letter, Bello pledged to deploy all in his capacity, working alongside the Presidential candidate, to ensure victory for APC.
“Your Excellency is one great Nigerian I know, who not only exemplifies but abundantly demonstrates, through transformational leadership and good governance, my own aspirations for a Nigeria that is Secure, United and Prosperous,” he stated.
