20th May, 2019.
The Coalition of Kogi Youth Leaders wishes to use this medium to call on the people of the state to support the second term bid of Governor Yahaya Bello to enable him consolidate on the successes recorded in his first term in office. Our endorsement is primarily borne out of the interest the governor has for the youth of the state and various developmental strides he initiated through the New Direction Movement.
Our State which used to be a hideout for criminals especially kidnappers and armed robbers before the inauguration of His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello is now one of the most peaceful and crime Free State in Nigeria through His Excellency commitment to tackling the issue of insecurity. We commend Gov. Yahaya Adoza Bello for the massive investment in Security.
As an organisation we are embarking on massive mobilization of young people and all electorate in Kogi State to canvass support for His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya adoza Bello ensuring that he returns to Lugard House as the Executive Governor of Kogi State come November 16th Governorship Election in the state.
As a show of appreciation for His Excellency interest in empowerment and development of young people in the State, the leadership of Coalition of Kogi Youth Leaders has volunteer to make available to Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello is nomination form for his re-election as the Executive Governor of Kogi State.
The emergence of Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello was a divine one, having assumed office by divine Providence and we appeal to all Kogites to support His Excellency Second Term Bid for the Lord Luggard Government House.
The leadership of Coalition of Kogi Youth Leaders calls on all Kogites to ignore and reject the KOGI koya movement has been proposes by Senator Dino Melaye as he has no moral ground in proposing such unwarranted campaign against the Executive Governor of Kogi State. The idea of the Kogi Koya is dead on arrival as we are going to mobilize all our members across the state and indeed all Kogites to Say Capital NO to Kogi Koya because we cannot afford to go back to the black days era where insecurity and banditry is the other of the day in the Confluence State.
We commend Gov. Yahaya Bello for his ability to navigate troubled challenges and for been able to offer quality and acceptable governance within available resources.
Another term in office for Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello would enable him consolidates on the gains of the on-going developmental Projects and build on the New Direction movement agenda for the New Kogi state of our dreams.
