The Convener, Congress For Better Nigeria, Barr. Zaccaeus Dare Michael has faulted the claims of Professor Itse Sagay over the presidential ambition of kogi state governor , Alhaji Yahaya Bello.
This is just as the convener described the legal icon as “living in the past.” without considering the present realities facing the country.
While reacting to Sagay’s claim that the Kogi governor has no records to show to warrant his nursing presidential ambition, he insisted that his generation has failed this country assuring that the Youths have vowed to take their destinies in their hands in 2023.
According to Barr. Dare Michael , it is unfortunate that a learned personality would speak about rotation in a democracy, pointing out that the overwhelming calls across the country for Gov. Bello to aspire for presidency is hinged on his outstanding performances which could be felt in all sectors of Kogi state.
According to him” Sagay is living in a world of ignorance not knowing that Kogi State is adjudged as the most peaceful state in the North today. I urged him to visit the State to see first hand transformation the State has witnessed under Gov. Bello”
Barr. Dare described Prof Sagay as a man who is not in tune with realities expressed sympathy that as much as he tried to seek relevance, he has further exposed his inadequacies of happenings in the country.
He advised him to have a rethink and do restitution for failure to bring to disrepute the person and efforts of Gov. Bello.
The Convener assured that the days when the generation of Prof. Sagay were allowed to drag the nation backwards was over , pointing out that Youths across the globe have taken over the leadership of their Countries which Nigeria should not be an exception.
He warned him that any attempt to deny the teeming Youths of Nigeria leadership in the Presidency in 2023 would witness another uprising as was witnessed during the EndSars protest last year.
The Convener expressed dismay that Professor Sagay would embark on a campaign to condemn young and upcoming new generation of Nigeria’s political class from what rightfully belongs to them” stressing that his utterances was most unfortunate.
He stressed that contesting in 2023 would be based on competence, and not zoning urging prof. Sagay and his cohorts to respect the processes of electing a leader under a democratic system.
He advised him to jettison any undemocratic arrangements that is not recognise by law as Nigerian Youths are now more wiser than Prof. Sagay thinks about them.
While describing Gov. Bello administration as one that has met the yearnings and aspirations of the people of Kogi State in the areas of health, education, security and infrastructure, insisting that his popularity across the country remains unequalled.
