'Economic bandits is all I see' - Reactions to photo of Fani Kayode, Yahaya Bello in Lokoja

A photo of Kogi Governor, Yahaya Bello and Femi Fani Kayode has generated some reactions on social media.

The photos that are gathering steam on social media were shared on the Instagram handle of Fani Kayode, who is also a key member of the Tinubu/Shettima campaign organization.

"It was an honor and privilege to spend the day with my dearest friend and brother Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state, the White Lion, yesterday.

We had a fruitful and productive discussion about the presidential campaign and how to further enhance the chances of our Presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Always a pleasure spending time with him. The victory is ours! Asiwaju is coming (FFK), he wrote on Instagram.

Both men have over the years built a strong relationship with reports indicating that the Kogi governor persuaded the former minister of Aviation to join the ruling All Progressives Congress from the Peoples Democratic Party.

The emergence of these images puts to bed any doubts that there is friction within them with Fani Kayode holding such an important position in the Tinubu campaign.

Recall that Bello threw caution to the wind in his desperation for the 2023 presidential race when he walked out on his colleagues in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) during a meeting in Abuja on Monday.

The meeting was part of preparations for the presidential primary and to finalize plans to adopt a consensus presidential candidate – from the Southern region as earlier agreed upon.

uceenwachukwu: "PMS #600 in Portharcourt. I don't know why APC has chosen to waste money and time. Even their presidential candidate can't communicate in clear terms"

kingomene001: "Joining the APC was the best move ever for you. I never knew the APC is such a lovely party. Even me I’m enjoying it to the fullest."
