In the post, the young artist wrote, “I did a painting of Governor Yahaya Bello @officialgybkogi.

Receiving the apparently elated artist in Abuja on Wednesday, Bello offered him a life-time school scholarship.
The governor said he is pleased with the creativity and talent of the young man and would be available to see him through in his academics.
