Yahaya Bello has revealed that Nigerian elites are begging him to run for Presidency.
ALEDEH News reports that Bello who is a serving Governor of Kogi State disclosed that the youths and women and ‘all Nigerians’, including very objective elites have been begging him to run for president.
He urged his supporters to be patient and assured them that he won’t disappoint them when he emerged as the president.
“The youths and women and all Nigerians, including very objective elites, are asking me to run for president in 2023. And I believe that it is high time that we looked into capacity — who can do the job? who is going to unify this country? And I think they are seeing something in me that they are asking me to come and unite and fix this country,” Bello said when he featured on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme.
“My answer will be affirmative in a [short] time from now. I want to urge each and everyone of us that are asking me to come and run to be patient.
“It is still a work in progress and by the grace of God, I am not going to disappoint you when the time comes for me to give a response to that.”
Bello further cautioned “leaders across board including governors and all of the leaders across Nigeria that we should be careful about the words we use. When we are talking of security, unity and national cohesion of Nigeria, as leaders and politicians, we should be careful about the words we use when we are addressing these various topical issues.
“When we talk about restructuring or the various demands or resolutions put across by my colleagues from the South, they are quite germane and they are entitled to their opinions and I so respect it but when it is titled or when it appears as if you are fighting President Muhammadu Buhari, our father and our President, we are all getting it wrong because we get to where we are today as a result of maladministration of successive administrations.”
