Obi a social media creation, Tinubu unmoved by popularity – Yahaya Bello

The governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, stated on Monday that Bola Tinubu, the leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), is not in danger due to the rising popularity of Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party for president.

On the Channels Television programme Politics Today, Bello, who was just named the National Youth Coordinator of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, made this claim.
Obi was predicted to win the 2023 presidential election in a recent poll conducted by the ANAP Foundation, a non-governmental organisation established by Stanbic IBTC Chairman, Atedo Peterside.

 

When asked about the popularity of the former governor of Anambra State, particularly among Nigerian youth, Bello responded that Tinubu was unconcerned.

 

He disregarded the LP candidate, calling her a product of social media.

The governor boasted that he commands more respect among Nigerian Youths and his involvement in Tinubu’s campaign would help the APC candidate to get the support of youths.

He said: “During the contest before the presidential primaries, the only person that commands the respect of Nigerian youths was Yahaya Bello.

“I respect Peter Obi. He is a successful person in his own right, but online agitation is different from grassroot mobilization.

“Prior to my second term election, two opinion polls by two prominent citizens ruled me out of the race. I laughed because I know what I have done. And I eventually won the election.

“In this coming election, you will see strategy. You will see that Yahaya Bello has the respect of Nigerian youths, and they want me to coordinate them. And I will coordinate them to vote for our leader and presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

“Our leader is someone who has eyes for talents and credible people, that is why he chose me. And that is an indication that when he becomes president, he will be pro-youths, pro-Nigerians.”
