2023: Yahaya Bello will flog Tinubu, Osinbajo, restructure Nigeria — MKO Abiola’s daughter assures voters

The Yahaya Bello Presidential Campaign Organisation has assured Nigerians that the Kogi State governor will restructure Nigeria if elected president in 2023.

The Director-General, YBPCO, Hafsat Abiola-Costello, said this during a press conference in Abuja.

According to Abiola-Costello, daughter of late Chief MKO Abiola, the winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, Bello would defeat other perceived heavyweights in the forthcoming primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in a free and fair contest.

“It is good that you said heavyweights, but he will win in a free and fair contest. His chances are actually the best of the group because it is about the voters in competition and 60 per cent of Nigerians are under 30. I am his Director-General because I believe in him," she said.

“There has been a groundswell in our country by young people to play a bigger role in our political affairs. You know about the ‘Not Too Young to Run’, a campaign going on for a long time, which led to the President signing the Not too Young to Run Bill into law.

“Nigerian young people are ready to take more responsibilities in governing our affairs and this is the young people’s candidate.

“But we value and appreciate the heavyweights and those you call tested politicians, and they can be sure that if God willing, we have President Yahaya Bello come 2023, he will carry them along, he will be consulting them, seeking their counsel.

“He will want to build on their networks and resources because the country belongs to all of us. It belongs to the tested politicians and, most especially, the young people of Nigeria.”

She added that Bello believes that there is a need to restructure the country for better development.

“For instance, the Federal government granted autonomy to local governments, but all governors do not practise it. Gov. Bello practises it. The local governments in Kogi have autonomy. They get their money directly from the federation account. He also pays a certain proportion of the state’s revenues to the local governments."
