Kogi State Commissioner for Information and
Communications, Kingsley Fanwo, on Friday said the
various endorsements and calls by Nigerians on
Governor Yahaya Bello to contest the 2023 presidential
election did not come to them as a surprise.
Over 15 million Nigerian youths have so far endorsed
the governor as the most credible presidential candidate
for 2023.
Speaking with SATURDAY INDEPENDENT, Fanwo said
many Nigerians who were hitherto fed with false reports
about the governor without coming to Kogi state have
now changed their views having seen how the governor
handled the issue of the COVID-19 pandemic and issues
of insecurity in the state.
He said having seen what the governor has done with
scarce resources, many Nigerians, especially the youths
want him to replicate at the national level as President
of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“When Nigerians are making the clarion calls that he
should contest, we are not surprised because they are
watching all the governors. The media in the past may
have been used to tell a story they are not even aware
of but I think the narrative is changing.
“One of our greatest critic in the past is Babajide
Otitoju. He came to Kogi a few weeks ago, he drove
around and saw what is on the ground. He interacted
with the people on the situation in the state. When he
went back to Lagos, he said, ‘look, I think what I’m
doing to this man is unfair’.

“What we are trying to do is to make a lot of people in
the media to come to Kogi state and see what this man
has done. The man has done a lot since coming to the
office and that is why Nigerians are clamouring for him
today to become president.
“When you look at agriculture in Kogi state; the Rice
mills and many empowerment programmes around
agriculture in the state, one can say that the governor
has done a lot.
“When you look at the nation today, after getting close
to rice production sufficiency, we’ve now gone back to
importing rice. So, we need the kind of leadership that
will do what Yahaya Bello has done with the agriculture
of Kogi state sat the national level.”

On whether the governor will listen to the demands and
contest, Fanwo said he is focused on his task right now
as the number one citizen of Kogi but will make his
decision known at the appropriate time.
“Till now, he has not responded but we know he is
listening to them. He is concentrating on his job as
governor of Kogi state because that was what won him
that confidence in the first place.
“So, he will do more so that the noise will become more
deafening to come and contest. At the appropriate time,
he is going to respond to it whether he is accepting it or
not.”
