Yahaya Bello pays N100m APC presidential nomination fee

Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi has paid for his presidential Expression of Interest and Nomination forms with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to run in the 2023 presidential election.

This was disclosed in a statement by Yemi Kolapo, Director, Media and Publicity, Yahaya Bello Presidential Campaign Organisation, on Tuesday in Abuja.

Kolapo said the governor paid the N100 million required for the purchase of the forms on Tuesday morning.

“This made him the first to officially seal his aspiration to the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2023,” she said.

Kolapo recalled that Nigerians from all walks of life stormed the Abuja Eagle Square on Saturday, April 2, to witness the official acceptance of Bello to vie for the 2023 presidency.

According to her, the venue of the declaration was filled to the brim with different support groups while an almost equal crowd was seen outside the venue.

Kolapo said with the payment for the forms, Bello’s teeming supporters should be rest assured that he would be on the ballot paper in the 2023 presidential race.

In her words, “We are highly encouraged by the number of APC governors, leaders and stakeholders who have demonstrated their strong support for the candidacy of our principal.

“We reiterate that he is not known for betrayal. He is always very loyal to his own, and his priorities had always been Nigeria, Nigeria and Nigeria.

“Though, the race officially begins now, it is on record that Bello has consistently been at the forefront of the contest.

“He has demonstrated this again by being the first to pay for the APC expression of interest and nomination forms.

“We urge delegates and indeed all Nigerians to shun divisive narratives in the interest of the nation and choose the best of the lot.”

He expressed optimism that the APC Abdullahi Adamu-led National Working Committee (NWC) would put the interest of the party and that of Nigeria first in its activities for the emergence of the party’s 2023 presidential candidate.
