With less than a year to the 2023 general elections, Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has declared to join the presidential race.
His declaration has cleared the air surrounding his ambition for the Presidency in 2023.
The occasion which was held in the state was witnessed by some eminent Nigerians like Senator Jonathan Zwingina, Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of Aviation among others.
Speaking, Zwingina described the presidential aspirant as a detribalized Nigerian, who governs Kogi with appointees from other states.
Stressing that Nigeria needs Bello as a President, Zwingina noted that the “governor uprooted insecurity from Kogi, the state would have been a breeding ground for kidnapping and banditry, but for his leadership skills.”
Governor Bello joins big wigs in the country – Bola Ahmed Tinubu, vice president Yemi Osinbajo, former vice president; Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, Ebonyi State Governor; Dave Umahi among others.
