Yahaya Bello Debunks Dumping Tinubu
Bello stated this in a tweet on his official handle while sharing the cover page of the paper that carried the report.
According to him, his unwavering support for Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, in the 2023 presidential election remained undiluted.
The Tribune had claimed on its front page that the Kogi governor has withdrawn his support for Tinubu.
Debunking this, Bello said, “My unwavering support for Tinubu/Shettima 2023 is 100% undiluted. God bless APC!!! God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria!”

Reports say the rumour is also coming barely 24 hours after a key player in the Tinubu-Shettima campaign, Naja’atu Muhammad dumped the APC.
Naja’atu Muhammad, who was the Director of Civil Society in the Presidential Campaign Council of the ruling APC resigned from the position on Saturday.
The gunmen also kidnapped one person in the process.
