Former Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi, has described the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello as the best youth to lead the country.
Obi, who said this during a courtesy visit to Bello on Sunday, added that it was an honour to meet the governor.
He said, “What better person to lead the youths than him, because he has been doing all these good works and that is why I am here to see whatever way I can come in.”
The 34-year-old Stoke City midfielder stated that youths should be given the chance to get the change Nigerians clamour for.
“It is an honour for me to finally meet his Excellency personally after all the good things I have heard and read about him from not just the people of Kogi State but from Nigerians.”
“My main aim is to come here to show my appreciation and to thank him for all the things he has been doing for the people and also to support him in whatever future political positions he wants to go into.”
“I would like to be there to support him, to be there by his side through this journey for him to achieve whatever he wants, which is for the betterment of Nigeria.”
