Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, will formally declare his presidential ambition on Saturday, April 2 at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
This was confirmed by the organising committee for the official declaration on Wednesday.
Already, Bello has received several endorsements from across the geopolitical zones, especially youths and women across the country, urging him to run. However, the young Governor had insisted that he will declare his intention to run for the presidency in the forthcoming 2023 election once the All Progressives Congress (APC) holds it national convention.
“By the mandate and calling of Nigerians, Nigerian youths and women and people all over the world that are calling me to run and build on the achievement of President Muhammadu Buhari. I will surely answer them immediately after our convention as the case may be,” Bello told newsmen in Lokoja two months ago.
Aside age advantage, being the youngest Governor in Nigeria, Bello has received accolades for enhancing security in Kogi, women and youth inclusion in governance, breaking walls of ethnicity and his firm belief in unity.
