Make Oyakhilome Bello Youth Minister, Tinubu is urged by an APC-US support organization.



The group’s coordinator characterized Bello as one of Nigeria’s trailblazers overseas who is extremely passionate about having a good impact on the lives of Nigerian kids.

President Bola Tinubu has been urged by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-United States (US) Support Group to designate Mr. Oyakhilome Bello, its National Youth Leader, as the Minister of Youth Development.
In a statement released on Wednesday in Abuja, Prof. Salewa Olafioye, the group’s coordinator in Nigeria and convener of Nigeria Diaspora Think Thank, made the request. Bello, he claimed, would be a round peg in a round hole as youth minister.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), President Tinubu installed 45 ministers on Monday; the position of Minister of Youth remains unfilled. Bello, according to Olafioye, is one of Nigeria’s trailblazers outside who is passionate about having a positive impact on the lives of Nigerian youth.

He claimed that Bello, an ardent supporter of the APC, used his resources to help Tinubu win the presidency on February 25. He remembered how, on January 27, Bello convened a town hall meeting in Atlanta to present Tinubu as a credible and capable candidate in the run-up to the election.

In addition, on April 4, Bello organized a gathering outside the US Capitol to quell dissenting voices opposing the president’s announcement of his candidacy and inauguration.

At the gathering, Bello urged US President Joe Biden to stand up for Nigeria’s democracy against those who want to impose an interim national government or a military takeover.

“The Bello rally demonstrated unity and let the world know that Nigerians freely gave Tinubu the mandate to win the presidency on February 25th,” Olafioye stated.

He claimed that if Bello were appointed youth minister, his background as an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and social influencer would enable him to change the negative thinking patterns of young people in Nigeria. He declared that he would also mentor young people in Nigeria on how to thrive in life and make meaningful contributions to society.

Bello began his early years in Zaria, Kaduna State, before relocating to Lagos and eventually the United States. He is originally from Edo and was born in the former Gombe, which is now Taraba State.

He is well-versed and a true Nigerian.

“By guaranteeing revolutionary changes in society, Bello inspired and positively impacted the lives of numerous people through his ‘I Believe World,’ an Atlanta-based non-profit charity founded in 2017.”

Bello “would contribute his quota as a youth minister because through his NGO he has empowered and given scholarships to the less privileged in the society,” Olafioye stated.

The organizer of the organization expressed hope that the young person would make significant progress if chosen minister. He said Nigeria needs someone who is passionate, zealous, and has a history of integrity and dedication.
