The Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello on Monday expressed confidence that he would clinch the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress in 2023.
The Presidential aspirant is not giving up on his ambition despite the new National Chairman of the party, Abdullahi Adamu emerging from the North-Central which is his (Bello’s) geopolitical region.
Bello believes he can defeat the likes of Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the party, David Umahi, Governor of Ebonyi State, Rochas Okorocha, former Governor of Imo State to clinch the presidential ticket of the ruling party.
The Kogi State Governor while speaking with Channels TV on Monday said other zoning issues will be sorted out after he emerges as President in 2023.
He added that he would emerge as the flagbearer of the party if it decides to use consensus or voting in its presidential primary.
Bello while speaking said, “by the grace of God, after my emergence as the presidential candidate, every other zoning arrangement will sort itself out naturally, just like what you saw at the Eagle Square on Saturday.
“By the grace of God, we are going to pass through the democratic process; consensus is part of it, voting is part of it, but I am confident that whichever way you go by, our party will come out the best by electing me as the flag bearer of the APC.”
