In an interview session with Reuben Abati on Arise television, Femi Fani Kayode was asked who his best presidential candidate for the APC is. He answered that question saying that he thinks Yahaya Bello is the best candidate.
He said, “I believe the best candidate for the party and for the country is Yahaya Bello, I have said it before and I stand by it, At the end of the day we will go to the field and when we get to the field the primaries would now determine the rest”.
Fani Kayode was asked why he thinks Yahaya Bello Is the best candidate for Presidency, he answered saying that “I have worked closely with him, I trust him and I believe he loves this country, he is extremely tough, he is decisive, he is young, he is dynamic and his word is his bond, a quality that is rare in Nigerian politics, once he says A it is A and he is forthright about it. Yahaya Bello is loyal to his own, he is loyal to president Muhammadu Buhari and he is also loyal to the party, for me loyalty is everything”.
“A lot of people don’t know that Yahaya Bello is inspiring because they have not gotten the opportunity to work closely with him.
Yahaya Bello has encouraged me and he has also made me believe in this country again, he also made me realise that there is still hope for all of us. There is nobody in PDP or Wike people’s party that can stand a chance of defeating this young, dynamic and strong Nigerian”.
