Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state has expressed confidence in defeating Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Atiku Abubakar in the 2023 presidential election.
He spoke during an interview on Channels TV on Sunday, May 5, 2022, adding that he would make an excellent president as the youngest governor.
Bello is a presidential aspirant under the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
He said; “My interest is to fly the flag of APC as its presidential candidate and defeat PDP, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar at the polls.
“So if you’re talking about whether I will beat Atiku or not, let me tell you, and I say this sometimes when I was running for my second time, when I was accosted by a press man in the villa and asked me whether I would be able to win my second term. And I said no, it’s not just victory we’re looking at but the margin of victory.
“And as I speak with you now before 2pm on the day of the general election, we’ll be celebrating victory by the special grace of God when I secure the party.”
