One of the Presidential aspirants of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has warned that excluding his name on the ballot in the convention in Abuja on Tuesday to elect the party’s presidential flag bearer for the 2023 poll will be an invitation to trouble.
Bello, who is one of the 23 aspirants cleared to contest for the party’s presidential ticket ahead of the 2023 election, said there is a conspiracy against him, accusing the APC northern governors and some elite of gang-up.
He said there was no need for him to be excluded from the primary, claiming that he represents the youth and the downtrodden.
Speaking with newsmen Tuesday at the State House, Abuja after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Bello described himself as a leading aspirant that would win overwhelmingly if the process is transparent and credible.
“Getting into the arena today, I will win overwhelmingly if the process is credible”, he said.
According to him, the only reason that could make him not contest the presidential primary is if President Buhari tells him to step down.
