*Says I’m more connected to grassroots than other politicians

*Says any administration not connected to grassroots has no business with governance

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State on Saturday said that the fight against insecurity would not succeed without carrying the grassroots along.

He also said that he was succeeding in the fight against security challenges because he was more connected to the grassroots than most politicians in Nigeria.

According to him, the grassroots have assisted him in curbing insecurity and achieving the present level of development being recorded in Kogi State.

Bello stated these while receiving grassroots political and religious leaders from Jigawa State at the Kogi State Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro in Abuja, who came to tell him to run for the Presidency in 2023.

He said that like the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), he was more at home with the people.

He said, “I wouldn’t have succeeded in Kogi State in curbing the insecurity, unity, togetherness, and modest achievement without the grassroots.

“The difference between me and some leaders is that I am connected to the grassroots. The grassroots is where politics is and any administration that is not connected to the grassroots has no business with governance.

“We have learnt from President Buhari, that you must be connected to the grassroots, with the grassroots supporting me and all of us and supporting President Buhari to succeed, we can only come on board to build on his (Buhari’s) successes.”

Bello commended the delegation from Jigawa State for urging him to run for the Presidency in the 2023 general election.

He told them that as many Nigerians have continued to call on him to run for the Presidency, he would not betray them or breach the trust they have in him.

“I am so happy to receive a delegation from Jigawa State. This delegation is not just an ordinary delegation, these are delegations who have always been with President Muhammadu Buhari ever since he ventured into politics till date. These delegations make things happen in Jigawa State.

“They have come to lend their voices to very many Nigerians who have been calling me to run for the Presidency in 2023, and by the grace of God, I will not disappoint them.”
