By Daniel Dafe, Abraka

Grandson to Shehu Usman Aliyu Shagari, first democratically elected President of Nigeria, Bello Bala Shagari, has disclosed that he has joined the race for the Chairmanship of Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) under the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to him, this move became necessary because of the kind of encouragement and support he has received from President Muhammadu Buhari.

He added: “In the last few years, I dedicated my life to youth activism and advocacy for youth inclusion in government. Today, I have decided to practice what I have been preaching and to lead by example.

“In our last visit to the President, as party youths, the President has encouraged us to participate in political activities and run for political offices in order to bring about a paradigm shift. Our great party the APC has also demonstrated a great deal of zeal by providing us a platform to showcase ourselves.”
