2023: Why I didn’t run for presidency in 2015 – Yahaya Bello


Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of doing little to develop infrastructure in the country, adding that this was why he did not challenge President Muhammadu Buhari for the All Progressives Congress presidential ticket in 2015.


Bello hailed Buhari for his infrastructure achievements, saying that it was for this reason he has decided to enter the race for the 2023 presidency.


The Kogi State Governor said he would now build on such a legacy left by Buhari if elected as Nigeria’s president.


Bello, who is one of the sitting governors who have declared interest to run for the presidency, appeared on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.


The Governor officially declared for the post at the week, when he promised to raise 20 million millionaires in seven years if elected.


“Today, I am running to build on the successes of President Muhammadu Buhari because of his performance,” the governor said during the current affairs show.


“In 2015, I dare not because there was no foundation whatsoever to build upon. But today under APC, President Muhammadu Buhari has been able to lay the foundation that I can build upon,” he added.


Bello referenced the apprenticeship system in the South-East, insisting that for every challenge facing the country, solutions abound if the nation looks inward.


“Why can’t we in this country develop homegrown solutions to our own problems?” he asked.
