Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, has appointed Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello as the National Youth Coordinator of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.
The appointment was conveyed in a letter dated August 8, 2022, signed by Tinubu and addressed to Bello, according to a statement issued on Sunday.
Bello has since accepted the position, promising to work hard to ensure the APC’s victory.
“Your Excellency is one great Nigerian I know, who not only exemplifies but abundantly demonstrates my aspirations for a secure, united, and prosperous Nigeria through transformational leadership and good governance,” he wrote in his acceptance letter.
In his post-match conference, the former Arsenal man, who joined The Toffees in 2019, hinted at Lampard’s impact on his career.
“I’ve always had the mindset that I can try to prove people wrong. The manager has given me faith to do so, and how to express myself as I always do in training.”
Former Brighton striker Maupay netted his first goal in royal blue as Everton’s wait for a deserved first Premier League win of the season came to an end at Goodison Park.
Speaking about his team’s performance and the fans’ reaction, Lampard expressed delight over the win and praised the fans, assuring them the team would get better.
“The reality is we have worked hard this season and deserved more. Our fans are amazing. To hold on, fight, dig in, we showed a lot of parts. We will get better. This team has to be a reflection of the fans. The passion of the fans, they demand things and they’d better see them. We have players who can deliver those characters,” Lampard said.
“Hopefully our football can get even better, the fans are happy. Nobody is getting carried away. At the moment there is a decent feeling around the place.”
The win means Everton head into the international break boasting a six-match unbeaten run, five in the Premier League, and with the joint second-best defensive record in the top flight.
Five league defeats from seven games will be a concern for West Ham manager David Moyes, whose side host fellow strugglers Wolves in their next match on 1 October.
