Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has promised not to betray Nigerians if given the opportunity to be the next President of the country in 2023 Elections.
He made the promise during a telephone conversation with North-East legislators, as part of consultations towards his presidential ambition on Thursday.
This is as he expressed optimism that he will win the 2023 presidential election with the prayers and support of the legislators whom he described as “critical stakeholders”.
He, however, said that the task ahead is enormous for them, although “it is about all of us, it is about our party, about Nigeria, and about our future, but by the grace of God, with your support and prayers, I know we will get to the promised land.”
“I would have been there personally to appreciate you, but you know that everywhere I go, the crowd is always too much and I don’t want to be seen to be breaking the law since open campaigns have not been allowed; I want to keep to the law. I’ll come around when the ban is lifted to speak to you one-on-one in your various enclaves. However, my Speaker and other well-spirited Nigerians are moving around the country and are talking to people of importance, especially critical stakeholders like you.
“I want to promise you that I will not disappoint any of you, looking at the relationship I have with the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, I know that by the grace of God, we will have a more robust and wonderful relationship. We will get to the Presidential Villa on May 29th, 2023.
“I need your support, I need your prayers, I need your buy-in, I need you very much so that together, we can save this country and build on the successes of President Muhammadu Buhari. I once again promise that I will not betray your trust, I will not disappoint you because I am a man who keeps promises and trust.”
