Presidential race: I’ll run again ― Yahaya Bello

Wed Jun 15th, 2022 - Abuja (FCT)

Fresh from losing the presidential primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, on Wednesday, hinted that he will launch another attempt to be president in the near future.

He made the declaration in a chat with correspondents in Abuja on Wednesday after visiting President Muhammadu Buhari to thank him for allowing him to contest in the exercise.

The governor said that what he did with the APC presidential race was to “test the mike,” saying that his next attempt will be “supersonic.”

Bello appealed to his supporters not to be disillusioned as according to him, in life “sometimes you win some and sometimes you lose some.”

He urged his supporters to support the ruling party across board in the coming elections.

On the possibility of the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, running with a Muslim running mate, the governor stated that religion should not be the determinant for political offices.

He said whether a Muslim/Muslim or Christian/Christian ticket, the major consideration for selection should be the ability to deliver.
