Emphasising on the groundbreaking achievements of governor Bello, in terms of security, Obasanjo stated with fact that the fight against insecurity should have everybody on board, stressing that governors should involve everyone to ensure insecurity is curtailed in the country.

“Obasanjo is one of the few Nigeria former leaders with the interest of the youths at heart. We are not surprised to see him coming out openly to acknowledge the good works of Governor Yahaya Bello.

“He did it because he is a progressive leader that wants the country to move forward against all odds. I knew this when I personally met with Baba for the first time in 2019, at his Ota country home,” Nihi said.

President Obasanjo during the close door meeting, urged governor Bello to continue his fight against criminality, thanking the Governor for his outstanding role in youth/women involvement in governance.

“We believe Governor Yahaya Bello will keep doing his possible best, to safeguard the lives and livelihood of all Nigerians,” he said.
