Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state has said he is not afraid of former President Goodluck Jonathan or any presidential aspirant on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Daily Trust reports.

Jonathan has the backing of two governors and many other stakeholders of the APC to defect to the ruling party and pick the party’s presidential ticket for the 2023 poll, according to sources.

But in an interview with newsmen at the APC national secretariat on Wednesday, April 27, in Abuja, shortly after obtaining his forms to run for the presidency, Governor Bello said, such development is the beauty of democracy.

He affirmed:

“In democracy anybody can support anyone but I am assuring you that our great party, the APC is a party that has its own ethics, rules and regulations and I know surely that all of these are in my favour and I am not in anyway scared of the pedigree of anyone whatsoever."

Bello added that his wealth of experience in governance would speak for him ahead of the party's presidential primaries scheduled to hold in the month of May 2022. and the 2023 elections.

Governor Yahaya Bello had promised to ensure that the legacies of the late MKO Abiola do not go to waste.

Bello made the promise shortly after he made a declaration to run for the presidency in the 2023 general election.

According to Bello, he will deliver all that Abiola planned for Nigeria to every Nigerian across the board.
