The chairperson of African Youth Leaders Roundtable, Comrade Ben Duntoye, has called on Kogi youths across the country to support the reelection of Kogi State governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello and his running mate, Chief Edward Onoja, for a second term.
Duntoye, who spoke with journalists in Lokoja, said it was important for the people to rally round the governor so that “he can complete the numerous people-oriented projects presently going on in the state”.
He said the nomination of the Chief of Staff to the governor, Chief Edward Onoja, as running mate to the governor was a good omen and has shown that he has what it takes to be deputy governor of the state.
He stressed that Onoja has contributed much to national development and that of Kogi in particular as a good ambassador of Nigerian youths as he represents the younger generation
“Since the governor has been tested, trusted and has just another four years to spend in office, it is wiser for the people of the state to vote for him instead of another experiment with another governorship candidate.
“Another four years of Yahaya Bello will bring about consolidation of landmark achievements and greater youth empowerment and youth involvement in decision making,” he said.
