This was disclosed in Abuja by the group on Saturday, August 7, during the opening of its two-day national retreat, Premium Times reports.
Speaking during the retreat, Faith Eches, the convener of the retreat, said a young person like Governor Bello is a perfect fit for the position, considering his leadership strides in Kogi state.
“Our very own person in the 21st century, who boldly challenges the conventional tides and customary patterns of method and procedures of doing politics in Nigeria is Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello of Kogi.
“We the youth of this country, under the umbrella of Christian Youth Leadership Network, represented from across the 36 states of the federation and the FCT are saying Yahaya Bello is the best."
Yahaya Bello is a servant of the people
The group said the next president of Nigeria should be someone who can actualise the collective dreams of Nigerians in the face of harsh challenges facing the country, TheCable reports

On his part, Jonathan Maji, chief missioner and director of Springs of Life Resource Centre, said Bello was chosen because of his exemplary leadership style.
“He has been able to pull a string that if given the opportunity, being youthful, there is something he can drive home at this time. That is why the Christian youths have come out to endorse Gov. Yahaya Bello."
2023 presidency: More support for Yahaya Bello
Although still mute about any presidential ambition, Governor Bello of Kogi has been getting more support from allies to contest for Nigeria's seat of power in 2023.
One of those who are throwing their weight behind the north-central governor is the state commissioner for information, Kingsley Fanwo.
According to him, he has taken the support for the governor as a personal project and believes his principal will eventually yield to the call from many persons, youths and women included.
The commissioner noted that the governor's campaign when he finally declares his intention will be hinged on security, national unity, and economic prosperity.
