Kogi State Governor Yahya Bello has explained why he is not yet involved in the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign.
POST reported that Gov Bello, the APC presidential candidate, participated in the party’s primary, which was won by Paula Tinubu.
Since flying Tinubu’s presidential campaign flag, the governor has not been forthcoming despite his appointment as the Youth Coordinator of the APC’s Presidential Campaign Council.
But Bello said he was doing some underground work for Tinubu, which did not allow him to take part in the campaign train.
He spoke with Seyi Tinubu during a visit to his office in Lokoja, the capital of Kogi State, on Thursday.
Seyi led the PCC National Youth Mobilization Directorate to Lord Lugard House in Lokoja, to rally support for his father.
In his words, the governor stressed that people might be thinking he has been quiet for a while now, saying, however, that he is really working underground for the APC candidate.
“I am with Asiwaju (Tinubu). I do some undercover work for the success of Asiwaju as Chief and APC, which is why I have not followed up and down campaign training. I may not follow Asiwaju up and down, but what I do is far above what the eye can see.
“By 2023, we will achieve a landslide victory,” he was confident.
Gough Bello described Seyi Tinubu as my “little brother”, saying “I am the first-born of Asiwaju.”
Earlier, Seyi who is also in Kogi to distribute access to the victims of the recent floods said that Kogi is among the countries the group has identified to visit and support.
He appreciated Bello for accepting them, and also thanked the Deputy Governor, Edward Onoja, for joining them in Lagos to show his support during the walk.
