Furthermore, under Asuku’s tenure as the chief of staff, Governor Yahaya Bello has been able to engage directly with Kogites. Asuku remains one of the youngest aspirants, and with Bello being a youth leader and Nigeria’s youngest governor, every Nigerian looks up to who his successor will be. Bello has promised the youth council that he will hand over power to the youths, and Asuku’s youthfulness and leadership qualities make him a suitable candidate for the job.
