Governor Bello: Incompetent leaders took over from military in 1999

The Executive Governor of Niger State, Abubakar Bello on Friday said there is a linkage between the failures recorded in governance since the coming of democracy in 1999 and incompetent leaders who took over the leadership from military.

This statement was made by the governor while speaking at a youth summit organised by a member of the House of Representatives and Chairman Board of Trustees of Lead Generation Initiative (LGI) Shina Peller in Abuja

Bello said when the military decided to hand over power to civilians, a lot of competent people never believed in the process and therefore stood back and watched while the system was manipulated by incompetent people.

He said;

“For them (those who took power from the military), occupying political offices was business and they accumulated a lot of wealth.”

The Governor who insisted that “the position of a councillor or ward leader is fundamental and also very important for the development of the country”, told educated youths not to be ashamed of aspiring for leadership position in the country as their involvement especially at the grassroots level, will enable them to take leadership positions and effect the change they desire instead of just complaining on the sidelines.
