Hundreds of youths from the nine states of the Niger Delta region have thrown their weight behind Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello’s presidential ambition in 2023. They have also declared their readiness to mobilise and support his candidature within and outside the region.
The youths, under the aegis of Niger Delta APC Youth Vanguard (NDAYV), said their decision was made after due consultations with leaders of thoughts across the six geo-political zones.
The group’s president and national coordinator, Fiawei Pathfinder and national secretary, Comrade A. K. Peters, in a press statement, argued that the choice of Governor Yahaya Bello was made after taking a closer look at the list of possible presidential aspirants.
They said their support is based on his contributions on issues of nation building, peace advocacy, security stability, infrastructural and economic development in Kogi State in the past six years.
