Deji Adeyanju, popular Abuja-based activist, has said the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello’s ambition is to become a minister.

 

Adeyanju, who is the convener of Concerned Nigerians, said Bello was not contesting for president but looking for a ministerial role in 2023.

 

In a series of tweets, the activist pointed out that Bello was only tricking people into believing he’s contesting for the presidency.

 

According to Adeyanju: “Yahaya Bello is contesting for Ministerial position in 2023 and not president. I only feel sorry for those that have fallen for his tricks.

 

“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.”

 

Governor Bello’s presidential campaign posters have been sighted in some states of the Federation.

 

Reacting, Bello had said at the right time he would confirm his interest to run for the presidency.

 

He, however, admitted that Nigerians have been calling on him to contest for the presidency in 2023.
