Yahaya Bello, Kogi governor, says the All Progressives Congress (APC) is going to produce a president in 2023 that will unify the country.
Speaking on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme, on Thursday, Bello said the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) ambition to take back power is a “lofty dream” and ”castles in the air”.
The governor said the majority of Nigerians will accept the APC’s candidate in 2023.
“One thing I can assure Nigerians is that APC will produce a president that is going to be the unifier – that is going to be fair and just,” he said.
“The majority of Nigerians irrespective of religion, ethnicity or where they come from will accept 100 percent in 2023.”
The governor said for defecting to the APC, David Umahi, Ebonyi governor, should be awarded politician of the year.
Bello said there is nothing wrong for either the north-central or south-east to seek the presidency because they have been deprived “in national polity”.
According to him, politicians from the opposition parties are joining the APC because of the “sterling” leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, adding that the party is willing to give anyone an opportunity to aspire to become president.
The governor said the APC-led federal government has done well in developing country and that it “is guaranteed a massive victory in 2023”.
