The Niger Delta Coalition for Change (NDCC) has endorsed the Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed for the 2023 presidential election.
According to the group, the endorsement of the governor for the presidency in 2023 follows infrastructural development in the state in about three years.
The group, through its National President, John Paul Gold, noted that Senator Mohammed’s infrastructural strides and exemplary leadership in Bauchi State are finally getting the recognition it deserves.
Last week, Governor Mohammed was given special recognition by the United Kingdom-based media group, TheNigerian News for his developmental stride in the state.
Represented by his Senior Special Assistant on Project Monitoring, Mallam Musa Azare, the special recognition was presented to him by His Royal Highness, the Emir of Lafia, Justice Sidi Bage (rtd).
The media outfit described the governor as a committed reformer with an unflagging love for his people, working tirelessly to embrace innovative ideas that have transformed the state into an epicentre of good governance.
The group said this is a wake-up call to other governors that quality leadership is possible despite the challenges.
Gold said Governor Mohammed has again proven his mettle and readiness to take the big leap to Aso Rock in 2023.
The group, on behalf of other Niger Delta youths, pledged its support for the governor if he declares to run for president.
Gold added that with a leader such as Mohammed on the saddle, Nigeria’s many problems will be tackled innovatively.
The group urged other governors and public office holders across the country to take a leaf from the former Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister.
