2023: APC chieftain recommends Niger state governor to Tinubu as running mate
Meanwhile, a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and socio-political analyst, Chief Ray Morphy, has said the Niger state governor Abubakar Sani-Bello, has demonstrated capacity as a leader.
Chief Morphy said the governor should be commended and celebrated for what he is doing despite the paucity of funds, the size of the state, and security challenges posed by bandits.
He, however, recommended Sani-Bello to the APC presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu as running mate, saying the governor has the character, the mien, and the disposition that is ideal of a vice president.
Speaking to journalists on Tuesday, July 5 in Abuja, after a visit to Niger state to see the situation of things and the style of governance of Bello, the APC chieftain said the governor has performed admirably well since he became the governor of the state in 2015.
