2023 presidency: Kogi’s Yahaya Bello only threat, says PDP stalwart

Segun Showunmi, a former spokesman of the Abubakar Atiku Campaign Organisation, has identified Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State as a major threat to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chances of usurping the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 Presidential election.

Showunmi was speaking on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Wednesday.

“Buhari (Muhammadu) is not an issue, I will spit him out of my mouth,” Showunmi said.

“I’m worried about Governor Yahaya Bello because of some of the footprints I see him doing, he is young, and can connect to the right audience.”

Although Governor Bello has not officially declared his intention to contest in the 2023 election, he had said “all Nigerians are asking me to run for president”.

He has been hosting prominent Nigerians, especially sports stars.

PDP’s Atiku, meanwhile, is expected to vie for the top seat in Aso Rock once more, after failing in his last attempt to democratically displace President Buhari.
