Some youths across the country have held a nationwide rally to canvass support for the presidential ambition of Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi state.

Bello is one of the front line presidential aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 election.

The youths held the rally across 23 states of the country on Saturday.

The organisers noted that they have mobilised over 16 million active holders of permanent voter cards (PVCs) to actualise a Yahaya Bello presidency in 2023.

The youth under the umbrella of Rescue Nigeria Mission (RENMISS) stated that the “nationwide capacity rally” was to demonstrate that they meant business and would go all out for their own in the forthcoming election.

Abdullahi Shuaibu Damat, national coordinator of RENMISS, said the youth is already thinking beyond the primary elections of the major parties in their quest to ensure Bello succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari.

Damat, who spoke at the unity fountain venue of the Abuja rally, said the youth has seized their future in their own hands with the resolve to shun money politics and heighten determination to participate actively in the forthcoming election.

“If you have your colleagues everywhere in the nation — Bauchi, Sokoto, Oyo, Kwara, Anambra, Katsina, Kano, Gombe, south-south and all across the country –ask them about the kind of crowd they have seen today, simultaneously, in all the states,” Damat said.

“It has never happened before in Nigeria. This is what we mean by the phrase ‘it is youths o’ clock’. We want to appeal to the stakeholders and leaders to choose the person that can deliver the election at this point in time. In Nigeria today, no politician comes close to the Yahaya Bello structure.”

In Nasarawa state, the meeting point was Kaura Plaza, along Jos road. The massive crowd walked to UBA junction and gathered at Total. In Jigawa, they gathered at three star hotel and matched from there through the streets.

In Oyo state, the crowd moved from ShopRite through Ring road to Challenge, among others, while the Kwara rally started from state stadium, Ibrahim Taiwo road, Ilorin, and moved through post office to the other parts of the state.
