Yahaya Bello, Kogi State Governor, has warned Nigerian youths to put a stop to the temptation of using the current situations in the country to seek an undemocratic change in leadership.
Governor Yahaya Bello warned that those interested in the presidency must wait till 2023 and go through democratic processes.
On Monday, he said this while addressing Nigerian youths’ protesting being his fifth address to the Nigerian youths since the #EndSARS protests began.
“It goes without saying that despite different levels of dissatisfaction with the status quo in our country among the citizenry, it is unwise to think that citizens will tolerate a change of leadership other than by clear-cut democratic means.
“Those interested in Mr. President’s seat must wait for 2023, and when it is finally up for grabs, they must present themselves to the Nigerian electorate, duly nominated as flag bearers for any party of their choice. It is as simple as that. Ditto for any other duly elected seat or office”, he said.
Governor Bello said the Nigerian youths should end the ongoing protests and enter a roundtable with the federal government.
He further stated that the protesters’ time leaders came out to engage with the federal government, having demonstrated resilience and courages in making their demands known for over ten days.
“In like manner, the real leaders and spokespersons of these protests must also begin to ‘show face’ now to enable government at all levels know who to interface with
“May I, therefore, request that the protesters give us people to engage with, especially on the timeliest schedules for calling it a day which accommodates all reasonable demands,” he said.
