As politicians in parts of the country brace up for the 2023 general elections in the country, posters of the Kogi state governor Yahya Bello for president have flooded Bauchi state.
The presidential campaign posters for Bello were Tuesday pasted in various parts of the Bauchi metropolis including roundabouts.
Our correspondent reports that the posters triggered speculation that Bello is nursing ambition to contest for president under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) come 2023.
Reacting to the development in an interview with our correspondent, the state publicity secretary of APC Adamu Jallah said party members who have ambitions are free to paste their posters anywhere.
He however said that those who pasted the posters might be Bello’s supporters adding that APC in Bauchi state has not officially endorsed any aspirant for any position just as it has not officially been contacted by any presidential hopeful.
Also commenting on the development, an APC stalwart in the state Mukhtar Bello Nadani opined that the posters show that the youth love the governor being a their fellow whom they think has what it takes to deliver good governance if he becomes president.
“I have the belief that if a youth becomes the president, he can solve youth’s problems. Solving youth’s problems is solving the country’s problems being the majority of Nigerian population.” he opined.
