The Nigerians in Diaspora Network called on Nigerians living abroad to support Governor Yahaya Bello de Kogi as president in 2023.

The group, which is separate from the Nigerians in Diaspora organization, made the appeal at a press conference in Oberhausen, Germany, after inaugurating a campaign office to support Bello ’s presidential campaign.

In a video and statement made available to the Nigerian News Agency (NAN), Odijie Irabor, general coordinator of the Nigerian Diaspora Network, said the group had jointly selected Bello, following a extensive research.

Irabor noted that Bello has attracted the attention of the international community, following his achievements in the fight against insecurity, ensuring the inclusion of young people and women in governance, educational development, among others. .

“We have embarked on a massive consultation with our members of the diaspora through our various networks of social cultural organizations, political organizations, media, religious organizations and many more.

“This led to the formation of a high-level committee to search for a young, viable, formidable, energetic, dynamic and results-oriented presidential candidate for the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.”

He said the committee chose Bello over other people because of the clamor for a youth president.

“Nigerians condemn the preponderance of candidates who are too old for the exalted post of President.

“In the current political context, His Excellency Governor Yahaya Bello is known to be Nigeria’s youngest governor with the desired physical and mental capacity to cope with the growing complexity and diversity of our political environment.

“Despite the total collapse of the security architecture in Nigeria, Kogi State, under the leadership of Yayaya Bello, has experienced a stable security atmosphere throughout the state.

“It should be noted that the result did not come by chance, but it was the fruit of the governor’s security strategies and his approach to inclusive governance.

“His current development progress and project achievements have been instrumental in our pursuit of his candidacy for the next presidential election,” said Irabor.

Speaking earlier, the group’s chairman, Mr. Victor Ojeabulu, said there were around 10 million Nigerians in the diaspora, calling on all Nigerians to support a young candidate.

Ojeabulu called on the youth of the diaspora and all young people in Nigeria to stand up and take up the challenge facing the current situation in the country.

A member of the group, Ms Maria Agbondinwin, said that from everything they had seen, heard and heard about Bello, Nigerians in the diaspora were convinced that Bello was the right person to make Nigeria even better. tall.

“By trusting and believing yourself, we know that as a young person you are dynamic. We know you can make a change and we are waiting for that change.

“We are by your side and we know that you can make Nigeria even better,” said Agbondinwin.

The Nigerian Diaspora Network organized the rally in Oberhausen, Germany, in accordance with German government COVID-19 protocols.
