Yahaya Bello Debunks Dumping Tinubu Over Faleke
The Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has debunked reports that he dumped the campaign train of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu over a possible political clash with James Faleke.
Bello, in a post via his verified Facebook page on Sunday, said his unwavering support for Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, in the 2023 presidential election remained undiluted.
Reports in some media outlets claimed that the Kogi governor may have dumped the Tinubu campaign.
The report said the National Youth Coordinator of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council’s action could have been informed by the permutations in the North-Central state ahead of November governorship election.
Debunking this, Bello said, “My unwavering support for Tinubu/Shettima 2023 is 100% undiluted. God bless APC!!! God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria!”
The rumour is also coming barely 24 hours after a key player in the Tinubu-Shettima campaign dumped the APC.
Naja’atu Muhammad, who was the director in the presidential campaign team of Tinubu
Had resigned from the position on Saturday.
