The Tinubu Support Group (TSG) has described Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello as a misfit for the exalted office of President of the country.
Umar Ibrahim, Director General of the campaign group for the former Lagos State governor, TSG, was reacting to an interview published in Sunday Trust where the Kogi State governor and Presidential aspirant, Yahaya Bello advised Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to shelve his 2023 Presidential ambition.
Governor Bello had said: “As a son to him, my simple advice is that it is time for him to allow his children to take over the mantle of leadership.”
The TSG which dismissed Governor Bello as “a betrayal of Not-too-Young-to-Run Campaign with his shoddy performance in governance,” advised Nigerians to ignore the Kogi State governor.
Ibrahim said that the governor’s opinion should not be taken seriously.
“All Nigerians can attest to the fact that governor Bello of Kogi State is a disgrace to the Not-too-Young-to-Run Campaign.
“How do we commit a great nation such as Nigeria to a so-called youthful governor who was given the opportunity to lead his state and he messed things up?
” Kogi people are dying daily because of unpaid salaries and misgovernance and you think that’s a criterion for governing a great country like Nigeria.
“It is on record that you, governor Bello remains the governor with the highest number of months of unpaid salaries and non-performance despite the huge sums of both internal and federally-generated revenues.
“We advise that you channel all your efforts into begging and praying for forgiveness for all the sufferings you have inflicted on the good people of Kogi State rather than eyeing presidency.”
The group also expressed confidence that the party would witness a successful transfer of power from one region to another at the polls in 2023, stating that the national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, remains the most qualified and competent candidate to take over from Buhari.
