- Supporters of Governor Yahaya Bello's presidential ambition are not resting on their oars
- Lawmakers in Kogi state have taken it upon themselves to sell the candidacy of the governor nationwide
- The lawmakers recently visited Benue state as part of their campaign to rally support for Bello
The Speaker of Kogi state House of Assembly, Matthew Kolawole, and his colleagues have kick-started a nationwide tour to convince their counterparts across the nation of the need to support Governor Yahaya Bello as the next president of Nigeria.
To further push for the realisation of Bello's presidential ambition, the lawmakers visited Benue state on Thursday, January 28.
The Nation reports that they were received at the Government House, Makurdi by the deputy governor of Benue state, Benson Abounu.
Kolawole said they were in Makurdi to consult with and seek the support of the leadership of the Benue state House of Assembly for Governor Bello in the 2023 presidential election.
Abounu welcomed the team to the state and wished them well. He said it was heartwarming that though they belong to different political parties, they still visited him.
He, however, stated that the question of who occupies what leadership position rests solely with God.
Recall that a political movement supporting Alhaji Yahaya Bello’s presidential ambition, PYB FRONTIERS recently called on Nigerians to rally round the governor to ensure that he succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari.
The leader of the group, Hans Mohammed in a statement sent to journalists on Tuesday, January 12 and seen by Legit.ng said the movement has commenced consultation activities that will ensure the governor emerges as the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress in 2023.
The group insisted that a Bello-led presidency would be an added advantage to Nigeria and its citizens, stressing that he would be able to build on the legacies of President Buhari.
Legit.ng had earlier reported that campaign posters of the Kogi state governor carrying inscriptions of his rumoured presidential ambition surfaced on some major roads in Kano state recently.
The posters were pasted at strategic locations in the state, including parts of Murtala Muhammad Way, Airport road, and Sani Marshal road.
