The Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello has boasted that he needs not more than 365 days to resolve Nigeria’s problems and challenges if he is elected president in 2023.
Bello, who has not hidden his aspiration to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 said Nigeria’s problems are surmountable if the leader has the willpower to take action.
He went ahead to identify the major problems facing the country which he listed as insecurity, corruption, mismanagement, and others.
The Kogi Governor however assured that there are solutions which are not far-fetched for all of these problems.
Governor Bello expressed his views while speaking at the 17th Nigeria Guild of Editor’s Conference in Abuja on Friday with the theme “Media in Times of Crises: Resolving Conflict and Achieving Consensus”.
“It won’t take more than 365 days to fix issues of insecurity, corruption, mismanagement among others in the country,” he boasted.
Adding that “From what I have come to realize and know, it takes a decisive, courageous, safe-minded and balanced leader to be able to fix this country once and for all. And to get this done, require the collaboration, understanding and restaking agenda-setting of the media to educate, sensitize and teach our people on the choice of the next leader,”
