I will contest for the presidential ticket again, says Yahaya Bello
The Kogi State Governor and presidential aspirant in the just concluded presidential primary of the All Progressives Congress, Yahaya Bello, Wednesday, said he would run for the top office in a subsequent election.
This was as he noted that his shot at the 2023 presidency was only “testing the microphone.”
Bello, who garnered 47 votes in last week’s elections disclosed this to the State House Correspondents shortly after meeting the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
According to him, he came to see the president on a thank-you visit for letting him participate in the highly contested exercise.
He noted that his recent attempt for the ticket was to “test the mic,” adding that his next attempt would be “supersonic.”
On the hunt for a running mate for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, he noted that competence should take precedence above other factors.
He said the Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket, the major consideration for selection should be deliverability.
To his supporters, Bello appealed for continued assurance in his presidential bid saying “sometimes you win some and sometimes you lose.”
He urged them to support the current flag bearer in next year’s elections.
