The spokesman for the Yahaya Bello Presidential Campaign Council, Yemi Kolapo, has said the Kogi State governor will defeat former president Goodluck Jonathan in the All Progressives Congress primary election.
Jonathan is reported to be considering joining the race for the APC 2023 presidential ticket despite not being a member of the party.
Speaking with Punch, Kolapo stated that his principal, Yahaya Bello, is not perturbed by the reports of Jonathan joining the APC.
He said no matter the number of people on the ballot, the Kogi governor will also be among them, jostling for the presidential ticket of the APC.
She said, “What I will say is that whether Jonathan declares or not, whether he joins APC or not is not a threat. Yahaya Bello will get the ticket. Everybody has the right to vie for any position.
“So, whether he (Jonathan) wants to do that in APC or his PDP, it is his choice. That will not deter anybody. No matter what they do, no matter the number of people who come into the race at this time, Yahaya Bello will be on the ballot.”
