Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello Presidential Campaign Organisation has condemned the victory of Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
They revealed this on Wednesday, via a statement titled, ‘Yahaya Bello remains the hero of the oppressed’.
The Director, Media and Publicity, Yemi Kolapo, via the statement released on behalf of the group, said the process that made Tinubu the APC Presidential candidate was highly “compromised” and “crooked”.
MOUTHPIECE NGR had reported that Tinubu garnered 1,271 votes to beat 13 other presidential aspirants, on Wednesday, at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
The statement partly reads, “The All Progressives Congress’ presidential primary elections have come and gone. The process was largely peaceful but highly compromised.
“In this process, one leader stands out, according to the majority of Nigerians.
“That leader, I say with all sense of fairness, is Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State. He’s the hero of this process and has made his point loud and clear to the admiration of even his worst enemies.
“If there was a clear, desperate gang-up by northern governors and the leaders of a party against one person, and that person never for once disappointed his teeming supporters but rather fought to the very end, not minding the crooked process, then he should be celebrated by the constituency he represents – the youth.”
