Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi has been appointed as the national youth coordinator of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.

The appointment was conveyed in a letter to Mr Bello and signed by the presidential candidate of the ruling APC, Bola Tinubu.

In the letter dated August 8, Mr Tinubu stressed that Mr Bello, an aspirant in the party’s presidential primaries held in June, deserved the appointment owing to his impressive political achievements as governor of his state and as a party member.

Mr Tinubu added that he was confident that the Kogi governor would do his best in the new responsibility given him so that the party could run an effective, message-driven campaign, which would lead to victory in the 2023 presidential election.

“By way of this letter, we are pleased to formally convey your appointment as National Youth Coordinator of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.

“This appointment is fitting and appropriate, given your impressive political achievements and the exemplary leadership you have demonstrated as governor of your state and as a party member.

“We are grateful that you have joined our campaign team. We know you will do your utmost in this new responsibility, so we conduct an effective, message-driven campaign leading us to victory in the 2023 presidential election.

“Together, not only can we ensure victory for our party in the February 2023 election, but we shall also move Nigeria along the path of national greatness,” the letter partly read.

Mr Tinubu congratulated the governor and wished him God’s speed and guidance.

In his acceptance letter, Mr Bello pledged to deploy all in his capacity, working alongside the presidential candidate, to ensure victory for the APC in the 2023 general elections.

“Tinubu is one great Nigerian who not only exemplifies but abundantly demonstrates, through transformational leadership and good governance, my own aspirations for a secure, united and prosperous Nigeria,” he stated.
