Bello Vows To Defeat Atiku

Speaking during an interview on Channels TV on Sunday, the governor bragged that he’ll defeat the vice-president easily if he becomes the APC presidential candidate.

Bello, who claimed he has 27 million Nigerians who are ready to vote for him, said that the ruling APC will be celebrating victory before 2pm on the election day if he emerges the party’s flagbearer for the 2023 presidential election.

He said, “My interest is to fly the flag of APC as its presidential candidate and defeat PDP, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar at the polls.

“We don’t have less than 27 million Nigerians both young women and all those who are ready to vote Governor Yahaya Bello when we secure the ticket of APC.

“Over 16 million in just less than 24 hours’ notice came out all of the state capitals and other cities across this country in support of Governor Yahaya Bello. That is the strength of Nigerian youths. That is the strength of Nigeria young population; that is the strength of Nigeria women; that is the strength of Nigerians living with special needs.

“So if you’re talking about whether I will beat Atiku or not, let me tell you, and I say this sometimes when I was running for my second time, when I was accosted by a press man in the villa and asked me whether I would be able to win my second term. And I said no, it’s not just victory we’re looking at but the margin of victory.

“And as I speak with you now before 2pm on the day of the general election, we’ll be celebrating victory by the special grace of God when I secure the party.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Atiku Abubakar defeated 12 other candidates including his closest rival, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, to emerge the PDP presidential candidate.
