Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state has reiterated his support for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The governor declared his absolute support of the president when commenting on Buhari’s stance against the tenure extension granted the APC’s national and state executives.
He said, “I am an ardent supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, who has said that we must stick to the 1999 Constitution and APC constitution. If Buhari asks me to jump into fire, I will not hesitate to jump into it.
Speaking on why he earlier backed Chief John Oyegun on his tenure elongation, Bello said:
“They are saying that I have problem with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; that is why I supported tenure elongation.
“I have no problem with Asiwaju, he is my leader. And President Buhari is the leader of all. I was supporting you (Oyegun and NWC) but we have to hold National Convention.”
