The Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has said that Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership has become better than some developed nations.
Bello said this on Tuesday during the flag-off of the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign at Rwang Pam Township Stadium in Jos, Plateau State.
Although he did not name those developed nations, the Kogi governor said that Buhari has performed excellently in infrastructural development and revamping the economy.
“You have done so well in terms of infrastructure and our economy. You inherited it when there were recessions and challenges across the world.
“Today in Nigeria, we are better than so many countries, including developed ones. It is under this wonderful APC, that you gave women, people and youth living with disabilities a chance to have a voice and belong.
“Your Excellency, you have done it from 2015 to 2019, from 2019 till date – you are going to handover Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu so he can continue to replicate what he did in Lagos and what Alhaji Shettima did in Borno state across this country,” he said.
Bello vowed to live up to his position as youth coordinator in the APC presidential council to mobilise the youths to vote enmasse for Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election.
He said, “I am assuring all the youths in this country that this coming election in 2023 is all about us.
“Is it not about Asiwaju, it is not about Kashim, it is not about President Muhammadu Buhari, it is all about the younger generation, youths and generation yet unborn.”
