Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello has declared that he believes in the wisdom and judgment of President Muhammadu Buhari, even as he expressed faith in the President’s appointment of Bola Tinubu to reconcile aggrieved members of the All Progessives Congress, APC.
Speaking with State House correspondents after observing Friday Islamic prayer at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, he said, “Whatever Mr. President believes in, his judgement and his wisdom I believe in him. And I believe in his ability to bring all party members together”.
The governor went on to express support for the decision of the National Assembly to re-arrange the order of elections in 2019, stating that it would prevent a repeat of 2015 where the “Buhari Tsunami” helped many “bad ones” to be elected into office.
His words, “I think if you observe critically what happened in the last election where Mr. President was elected along with other members of National the Assembly. Then we called it Buhari Tsunami; where the good, the bad and the ugly were all put together and elected. It is either going to be in their interest that the Buhari Tsunami will return them or everybody will be on his or her own.
“Let Buhari return and let Nigerians select the good ones out of the bad ones to return to the National Assembly. Whichever order it comes this upcoming general elections I can assure you that Mr. President will win landslide and the good ones will return to the National Assembly.”
