The Governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, has said that the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi is the importer of “the majority” of the products Nigerians consume.
Speaking on Channels Television, Bello explained that the former Anambra governor has engaged in a lot of businesses including the importation of majority of the materials consumed today
He said, “Peter Obi, I respect him. A gentleman, one-time governor; a businessman who everyone knows has engaged in several businesses including the importation of the majority of the products we consume today in the country.”
Bello was a presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress(APC) but was unsuccessful in his bid to clinch the ruling party’s ticket.
The governor noted that the Labour Party’s presidential candidate’s “online agitation” would not translate to good fortune at the polls next year.
Bello, who was recently appointed as the Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima campaign council youth coordinator, explained that Obi is doing well, however, insisted that online agitation is different from grassroot mobilization and movement.
“He is doing well in his own right, but let me tell you: online agitation is different from grassroots movements and mobilisation,” the Kogi governor declared.
