Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello on Monday received another endorsement for his presidential ambition for 2023 from a group under the aegis of Got Your Back Nigeria.
The National Coordinator of the group, Prof. Chris Nwaokobia said Governor Bello is the only aspirant who has reached out to Nigerians across creed and clan, religious and ethnic divides.
He said the governor has run an inclusive government and shown the capacity to deliver having run a progressive government with a cabinet whose average age is 42 and making Lokoja one of the fastest-growing cities in Africa.
In a statement on Monday in Abuja, Nwaokobia said: “There is clearly one individual who has elected to reach out to Nigerians across creed and clan, across religious and ethnic divides and across social cum societal stratification, that person is the incumbent Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.
“The others are busy canvassing regional cum zonal demagoguery. Some are outrageously pulling ethnic and zonal strings forgetting that we are where we are because rather than search for a Pan Nigerian candidate we have for too long elected leaders whose predilection is ethnoreligious and ethnocentric.
