Bello according to the Youth Vanguard have demonstrated his ability to deliver during his tenure as an executive governor as a detribalized and mobilizer by bringing in effective harmony, promoted gender equality despite being multi-faceted state with different political parties being blended for the betterment of the state and the Nation at large. “All these have galvanized into reducing friction and acrimony and thus avoiding the usual wrangling associated with multi politics having endeared yourself by operating an open door policy irrespective of the political affiliation.”

“Your stewardship as a governor has clearly shown you as an apostle and galvanizer of the current ‘not too young to rule’ you have created and given vibrant youths opportunities to serve in different capacities. These areas such as in executive council members, political appointments into key sectors have no doubt endeared you not only to the burgeoning youth of Kogi State but beyond. All these have no doubt helped to set a mark that youth have a vital role to play in the revitalization of our dear country.”

It is above that qualities, the release notes that propelled the vanguard to come up with the need to galvanize youth across 25 local government areas in Niger state as a first step to pass the message across “for your suitability to be saddled with this drive. It is our intention that once we are able to penetrate our local government areas and with your full support to extend our influence across the North Central Geo-political zone, of Niger, Nasarawa, Plateau, Benue, Kogi, Kwara and FCT Abuja.”

It assured of the vanguard’s assurance of unflinching support in actualising the success of Governor Yahaya Bello presidential aspiration in 2023.
