A group, Progressive Youths Mandate of Nigeria (PYMN) under the umbrella of All Progressive Congress (APC )has called on the people of Kogi State to support the reelection bid of Governor Yahaya Bello, stating that his second term ambition will complete lives transformation programmes of the administration.
The Coordinator of the group, Mr. Marvel Odiedi who made this call while speaking at a press conference in Lokoja on Wednesday, stated that after extensive consultation with stakeholders, the group has come down to Kogi state to show him, that the group is solidly queueing behind him.
Odiedi explained that the mission of the group which is among other things is to inspire and raise a new generation of youthful leaders responsible for the building of a new progressive and great Nigerian Nation’s State.
He stated that as the primary election of APC draw closer, it has become important to raise the consciousness of our people to give maximum support to the governor Yahaya Bello.
According to him, “We want to affirm to the general public that Yahaya Bello deserves another term in office following his unprecedented developments in the state.
” It is on record that before the ‘Not Too Young To Run Bill’ was drafted and passed into law, Gov. Bello had already filled his government with young men and women thereby making Kogi the most youth-friendly state in Nigeria.
” Similarly, our support for Yahaya Bello is hinged on the fact that Kogi State is among the few states in Nigeria that have not taken any loan for the integrated development of the state which cuts across the three senatorial districts.”
