The Governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello has taken a swipe at former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Pulse TV reported that Bello said this in reaction to reports that OBJ and his group, Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) has adopted the African Democratic Congress (ADC) as it’s political platform.
He said “We are going to retire these old and bad politicians in 2019. It is just like the President said, if we don’t kill corruption, corruption will kill Nigeria. So also, if we don’t retire these old and bad politicians, good politicians will be sent away.”
Bello also called on Obasanjo to reveal to Nigerians the presidential candidate of the ADC.
According to Independent, he said, “Let us see who they will present to contest against President Mohammadu Buhari, our God-given leader, whom US President Donald Trump even referred to as ‘sir’.”
Governor Bello also bragged saying that other states in Nigeria have so much to learn about politics from Kogi state.
He said “They call us greenhorns. But let them come to Kogi state and learn how politics is being done. I can assure that the rest 35 states of the nation has so much to learn from our state in the conduct of our congresses.”
