Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has stated that the time is right for the younger generation to take over from the older generation who are currently holding power at the federal level.

He said this on Tuesday, September 28, 2021, adding that there is a need for the youth to take over the affairs of the country.

According to him, he had always called on youth and women to avoid presenting themselves to the elders as political thugs and allow themselves to be used against each other.

“I began to prepare for the office of the governor in 2007 after the general election. I was getting myself prepared, waiting for the opportunity to present itself, so, my level of preparedness met opportunity, then I waited for no one, rather I stroke, then God completed the rest.

“Our elders have tried their best; you can’t do more than your capacity, and that is natural. Our elders have really done well. It is now incumbent on us the young generation, to take the country from where it is today to the next level,” he said.
