Yahaya Bello reveals next move after leaving office as Kogi governor

After a failed presidential bid, Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has revealled his next move upon completion of his eight years in office.

According to the governor, his goal after leaving office would be to help President Bola Tinubu succeed.

Bello stressed that Nigerians would succeed if  President Tinubu succeeded.

The governor disclosed this while speaking at an interactive session with journalists at the 3rd Annual GYB  Seminar for Nigeria’s Political & Crime Correspondents/Editors in Abuja on Saturday in Abuja.

“I thank God for my successes and achievements as governor of Kogi. I know where I met the state and am happy with where I have taken the state,” Bello said.

The governor expressed optimism that the APC governorship candidate in Kogi, Usman Ododo. would lead the state towards economic growth and development.

“I believe that the APC candidate, Usman Ododo, will build on the solid foundation we have laid down for Kogi,” the governor said.

According to him, the November 11 Kogi governorship election will be a landslide victory for  APC.

Reacting to a question on ensuring all members remained in the APC fold in the state, Bello said that APC remained solid in Kogi.

“Our unity is why APC wins in Kogi and will continue to win,” Bello said.

“Our party is one. You cannot satisfy everyone. However, there are internal mechanisms in the APC to resolve issues and we always utilise that,” he added.
