Former Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo has visited Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello at his Abuja residence.
The Al-Shabab striker described Bello as a bridge builder, adding that his leadership style is a source of hope to Nigerian youths.
The 32-year-old thanked the governor for the reception he gave to former Nigerian players in March while urging other state governors to emulate the leadership qualities of Bello.
Ighalo’s statement echoes that of Mikel, who also said in his address that there’s no one better to lead Nigerian youths than Bello.
It’s no longer a secret that the Kogi state governor is interested in contesting for Nigeria’s presidency at the 2023 general elections, and he’s been seeking the support of prominent Nigerian youths to help his mission.
