The founder of Concerned Nigerians and a social activist, Deji Adeyanju said Bello was not contesting for president but looking for a ministerial role in 2023. Adeyanju said the Kogi State Governor was not a serious contender.
“Nigerians will refuse to hold their elected or selected leaders accountable and even insult those who do but are quick to ask pastors and fellow citizens for accountability,” he tweeted.
According to him, Bello was only tricking people into believing he’s contesting for the presidency in order to allow him to negotiate for juicy appointments.
“Yahaya Bello is contesting for Ministerial position in 2023 and not president. I only feel sorry for those that have fallen for his tricks.” The Governor had in recent times told his supporters that there has been calls for him to contest in 2023 and he will announce his decision soon.
