Niger Delta Coalition for Gov. Bello 2023, a political support group, has asked Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello to declare his interest in serving Nigerians in the 2023 general elections.
In a statement issued on Tuesday and signed by the president, Sambo Temple, the group stated that its membership cuts across the six states in Niger Delta, stressing that the call became necessary considering “his glaring democratic potential to salvage the country out of doldrums.”
The statement reads in part, “The destiny of this nation as a nascent democracy under the present dispensation can only achieve its viable potential if handled by a prudent, purposeful and transparent leader in the person of Gov. Yahaya Bello.
“Nigerians are clamouring to have Gov. Bello as our next president considering his giant strides in Kogi State, which he will definitely replicate if given the mandate to serve Nigeria. We are in dire need of a stable and virile Nigeria, and Gov. Bello serves as the only rallying point in launching Nigeria back to greatness.
“Over the years, Nigeria has been denied the right leaders whose characteristics appeal to the generality of Nigerians as that of Gov. Bello, who by all standards has raised the bar in terms of purposeful governance in Kogi State.“
