The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has congratulated Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello following his appointment by Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 election, as the national youth coordinator of his presidential campaign.
Tinubu, in a letter, said he is sure Bello would do his best in the position, to ensure APC’s victory in the 2023 presidential election.
Recall that Bello had also contested the APC presidential ticket in June.
Shortly after his loss at the APC primary election in June, the Kogi governor had congratulated the APC presidential candidate on his victory and also donated his presidential campaign office to Tinubu.
Keyamo, a spokesman for the APC Presidential Campaign Council, stated that Bello’s appointment by Tinubu is “strategically correct and politically calculative” being that he is the youngest Governor in Nigeria.
“Big congratulations to H.E YAHAYA BELLO for his appointment as NATIONAL YOUTH COORDINATOR FOR THE TINUBU/SHETTIMA PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN COUNCIL. This is strategically correct and politically calculative.
“As the youngest Governor in Nigeria, this is a square peg in a square hole,” he wrote on his verified Twitter handle on Sunday.
