Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has reiterated his desire to succeed the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) after his tenure expires in 2023.
He stated that only ungrateful persons would fail to appreciate the sacrifices being made by the President to ensure that Nigeria remains united.
The governor said that Buhari remained the only President who does not have houses and bank accounts abroad, except his cattle.
Bello stated this while receiving traditional, political leaders and stakeholders from Daura and other parts of Katsina State led by Abba Daura, in his office.
The governor said what the President needed was for Nigerians and his followers to support him to succeed.
He said, “It will take an ingrate not to appreciate what President Muhammadu Buhari has been doing and is still doing for this country.
“President Buhari from history, has been sacrificing and is still sacrificing for the unity, security, prosperity and for the emancipation of this country right from his days in the military and now as a civilian.
“The President is the only President that, so far, doesn’t have a foreign account, any house abroad, or companies anywhere, rather than his cattle. Even when he was on the sick bed, he wished Nigeria well.
“The least we, as a people will do for him, is to ensure that we do everything possible whether in the open or secret to support him for him to succeed. So, whatever we are doing today is to ensure that we support him to succeed.”
