I will defeat anyone in presidential race – Yahaya Bello

Yahaya Bello, Governor of Kogi State, has said he would defeat any opponent staked against him in a presidential race. The governor also said he could become Nigeria’s president, if it is will of God.

“It is the will of God I became governor today, and I am in my second term going. If it’s the will of God for me to become president in this country at the right time, I will be’, Bello reportedly told journalists in Abuja at the weekend.

‘’I will record a vote that has never been recorded in Nigeria by the grace of God. But that’s not the issue right now; the issue is there must be Nigeria before we talk of 2023,’’ he added.

The Kogi governor, who is being rumoured to nurse a presidential ambition, disregarded a purported agreement in the ruling party, ceding power to the southern part of the country in next presidential race.

‘’There is nothing like zoning in our party. In 2015, there was no zoning; many aspirants, including former governor Rochas Okorocha contested. In 2019, there was no zoning; people in APC (All Progressives Congress) were not courageous enough to contest with President Muhammadu Buhari,” Bello stated.

Bello waxed his disguised aspiration by adding Nigerians yearn for young, vibrant, and responsible leaders, who can tackle the challenges. Bello is the youngest governor in Nigeria.
