Bello Ambassadors Network (BAN), has described the executive governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, as ”presidential material” for his swift intervention into the food blockade that stopped the moving of foodstuffs from North to South. A situation that put the whole nation in a critical condition as prices of foodstuffs dropped drastically in the North and worrisomely rose in the South.
The strike embarked upon by the Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers in Nigeria was suspended after Governor Bello waded in and amicably settled the issue.
Reacting to the success of Bello’s meeting with the leadership of AUFCDN and the subsequent suspension of the strike to allow food flow into the South, BAN National Coordinator, Comrade Anthony Edogbo, said Governor Yahaya Bello has proven to Nigerians that he is intellectually fit and wisdom filled to tackle the very many challenges befalling the country.
He added that peace resolution is a key skill that should be embedded in every leader and that the leadership style of Bello should be emulated by everyone occupying public offices.
Edogbo noted that the key role played by the young governor in resolving the food blockede signifies that the youths are ready to take up the mantle of national leadership and reform Nigeria.
President Muhammad Buhari received governor Bello earlier today at the State House in Abuja over the crucial role the governor played in lifting the food blockade.
