The governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello has opened up on the reason he plans on becoming the next president of Nigeria.
The presidential aspirant said he is running for the presidency because he wants Nigerians to have hope in the country once more.
He stated that he would achieve this by providing guarantees for security, unity, and progress.
The governor gave the assurance at the Eagles Square in Abuja, while officially declaring his intentions to run for the Presidency in 2023.
The governor said: “I am running for president because I see a bright light shining at the end of the tunnel for our nation. I am not one of those who always see doom. What God has helped us to do in Kogi state, by the grace of God we will replicate the same in Nigeria.
“We are so blessed as a nation and yet it does not always seem so. I am running to restore hope by providing guarantees for security, unity and progress to all Nigerians.
“Our focus will be proper management of our great diversities so that it can really be an advantage. We will foster more cooperation and integration amongst citizens and make sure that progress is made steadily across all sectors and indicators.”
