Why we support Yahaya Bello’s presidential ambition – women groups

Nike Aroloye, a market leader, has said women’s support for the presidential aspiration of Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello is reciprocal to his gender-sensitive actions.

Aroloye, who leads the south-west market movement for Bello, urged the ruling All Progressives Congress to jettison zoning and adopt the governor as its flagbearer in next year’s election.

“We already see the ticket with Yahaya Bello. Once he gets it, we are marching straight to Aso Rock. All my market women are ready to support him. We will go everywhere for this cause. He has said we are important. We will give him the reward,” Aroloye said.

Rose Odika, a Nollywood actress, corroborated Aroloye at the rally held for Bello.

“I have said it before, and I will repeat it here. Yahaya Bello is the one we will support. From all he has done for women and for his state in general, he is the one to beat. We will only support those who support us.

“It has never happened before in the history of Nigeria for a leading presidential candidate to appoint a woman as the director-general of his campaign,” she said.

Hafsat Abiola-Costello, director-general of the Yahaya Bello Presidential Campaign Organisation, said the “Nigerian women have decided, for once, to take their destinies in their hands by supporting that one governor that has given them so much voice and has made the world to see how women can turn stone into bread in a troubled economy. He will do the same for Nigeria.

She added that, “Seeing this huge honest crowd, I am confident that Yahaya Bello’s good deeds, belief in women and giant strides in a women-filled government have earned him the trust of Nigerian women. And I assure you, he will never forsake you. He has demonstrated this loudly in Kogi state.”
