The Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has been appointed as the National Youth Coordinator of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.
The appointment was conveyed in a letter addressed to Governor Bello, signed by the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Tinubu, in the letter, dated August 8, 2022, stressed that Bello, who was an aspirant in the party’s presidential primaries, held in June 2022, deserved the appointment, owing to his impressive political achievements and the exemplary leadership he had demonstrated as governor of his state and as a party member.
The former governor of Lagos State added that he was confident that the Kogi State 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.
Recall that multitudes of youths and women across the six geo-political zones of Nigeria, had, during the build-up to the APC presidential primary election, demonstrated their strong support for the Kogi State governor, owing to his youth- and women-friendly policies.
The letter, entitled, ‘Appointment as National Youth Coordinator for Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council’, read in part: “By way of this letter, we are pleased to formally convey your appointment as National Youth Coordinator of the Tinubu/ Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.”
