The National Coordinator of the group, Amb. Oladele John Nihi recently revealed this, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, failure to accept the call to run will only lead to the group mobilizing Nigerians to occupy the streets until their wish is granted.
He added that Yahaya Bello has shown exemplary leadership as governor, so he can do same as president.
His words, ”Our intention initially was to shut down this liaison office and to occupy it for the next 14 days until the government accept our request to him to run.“
“The Nigerian youths have put their resources and manpower together and with over 15 million of them signing signatures to ask Governor Yayaya Bello of Kogi State to contest the presidency come 2023.
“We believe that as youth leaders,we owe our nation this duty,to make sure that in 2023,we do not just have a president but the president that is youth minded. We want to have the president that is youth and women sensitive.”
“We are aware that Kogi State today,has over 90 percent of its appointees from the youth group, both men and women. We are aware that in Kogi State today,all the 21 Vice chairmen are all women. We are also aware that in Kogi State today,all the 21 council leaders are women. We are also aware that all the secretaries to the council chairmen in Kogi State today,are youth council coordinators.”
“And we have discovered that if Yahaya Bello,the Executive Governor of Kogi State is doing all these wonderful things in Kogi State,Nigeria deserves to have a feel of what kogites are currently enjoying.”
“It is on this note that the Nigerian youths, through the GYB2PYB Youths Support Group is submitting a letter of call to run for presidency come 2023,to His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.”
“We are here to call on him to contest for the presidency come 2023 and we are promising him that aside urging him to contest, as you are aware,over 75 percent population and even the voting strength of Nigeria are young people.”
“We are assuring him of our maximum support throughout the electioneering campaigns.”
“We want to give him a 14-day ultimatum to give us a positive response else the Nigerian youths are ready to shut down this nation.”
“We are sure the governor would not want to witness a repeat of protest similar to the #EndSARs protests that happened in this country in October, last year.”
