The Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Osaseyi Foundation, Mr Richard Osaseyi on Friday the 18th of March, paid a courtesy call on the Executive Governor of Kogi State, Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello at his Abuja residence.
The meeting was centered on human capital development, community development and youth participation in politics. Encomiums were showered on Governor Yahaya Bello for his sacrificial role to lead Nigerian youth out of obscurity and old-age governance; which has been a major setback for the country's development and growth across board.
Mr Osaseyi specifically appreciated the governor for choosing to challenge the status quo and for standing the gap for millions of Nigerian Youth whose voices are not or never heard by the powerful one percent who has been in the country's helms of affairs since independence.
The business tycoon and philanthropist also uses the opportunity to identify with millions of Nigerian Youth clamouring for His Excellency to accept to run for Presidency come 2023, and noted that having a Governor Yahaya Bello contesting for President will not only position Nigerian youth in their rightful place in the corridor of power, but also give a clearer chance to the youth constituency to take back what is rightfully theirs as we approach the ballot in the coming months.
