The Kogi State House of Assembly on Wednesday took the advocacy campaign of Governor Yahaya Bello’s 2023 Presidential Ambition to Sokoto State House of Assembly Lawmakers.


The Kogi Assembly Speaker, Mr Mathew Kolawole, who led other members of the House, said that the visit is to speak with colleagues to support them in agitating for Bello to become the next President of Nigeria.

Kolawole said that the gesture might be the first of its kind to see the legislative arm of a state Assembly supporting and advocating for a serving governor to be President.

“The reason is that we have seen numerous achievements in Yahaya Bello’s leadership, which have generally given us the full confidence of reaching out for support. We have worked with him for five years and we have seen what he has done in Kogi state. Bello inherited numerous security challenges, which today, by the grace of God, every body in our state can walk freely and sleep with two eyes closed.

“In the area of women empowerment, the governor has done beautifully well by ensuring that 35 per cent of the work force are made up of women. Today as I am talking to you, all the vice-chairmen in Kogi state local government areas are women, and five women councillors in each of the LGA,” he said.
