Vehicular movement was temporarily held up for several hours in Bauchi yesterday when thousands of youths stormed the major streets, rallying support for the presidential aspiration of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.

The supporters of the Kogi Governor, from the 20 local government areas of the state, converged on the multi-purpose Indoor Sports-hall from where they matched through Kobi Street, Emir Drive, Central Market to Abubakar Tafawa Balewa tomb.

According to them, a Bello presidency was non-negotiable in 2023, saying he has been tested and can be trusted in all the areas Nigeria as a country is found wanting today.

National President, Rescue Nigeria Mission, Ahmad Damat, during the rally reiterated that it was time to jettison old ways of playing politics and show that with the numerical strength of the youths in Nigeria, they could create a Nigeria of everyone’s dreams.

“We have worked with many leaders and assessed many across the length and breadth of Nigeria. Governor Yahaya Bello stands out,” he said.

The Chief of Staff to the Kogi State Governor, Abdulkareem Jamiu Asuku, who led other invited government officials to the rally, assured the youths that his principal would surely heed their call and address them very soon.
