The Director-General, Yahaya Bello Presidential Campaign Organisation, Hafsat Abiola-Costello, has said that the Governor of Kogi State will, in a free and fair contest, defeat other perceived heavy weights in the forth-coming primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Abiola-Costello said this on Sunday while addressing a World Press Conference in Abuja on the candidacy of Governor Yahaya Bello, a top contender for the 2023 presidency.
Addressing pressmen she said though it was clear that Bello had resisted the idea of godfathers for long, he would carry the older politicians along when be becomes the President of Nigeria as he his the best candidate that has qualities to deliver.
Replying to a question on what the assurance is if the Governor will emerge the winner of the APC ticket with the likes of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and other perceived heavyweights that had put their hats in the ring, she said Yahaya Bello chances are actually the best of the group because in a competition, it is about the voters and 60 percent of Nigerians are under 30, and also she believes in him.
On zoning, she said that the APC as at today had thrown open the contest, not restricting it to any zone, noting that everyone was eligible to contest regardless of the zone.
