Nigerians are reacting to photo of President Muhammadu Buhari endorsing Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello for a second term in Office.
Kogi state gubernatorial election is scheduled for later in November this year and Yahaya Bello has yesterday purchased his expression of interest form to stand in the party’s primary.
There a great deal of apprehension by the people of the state regarding his second term bid; he has barely performed in his first term and owe an awful lot of salaries arrears to the state civil servants.
There’s also uncertainty as to whether the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) was willing to give him ticket. He has met with a number of party’s bigwigs; the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to mention but a few.
But now seem the coast is clear for the “underperformed” governor after a photo of him surfaced with the president seemingly endorsing him for a second term.
This has sparked a lot of outrage, especially from those who are disappointed with his below par first term performance.
They chide the present for what the refer to as, “reinforcing failure”

Mr Integrity does not care is Yahaya Bello is working or not, if he’s embezzling money or not…. as long as he does the bidding of the fulani nation, he will always get that presidential support.

You are the only People that can Prove to even @MBuhari Himself that he is not Longer Wanted and Trusted in Nigeria.
We don’t need Him and we don’t need APC.
Send Yahaya Bello Back to his Village.

Majority of those that will vote in Kogi governorship election are rural dwellers who are not opportuned to know the truth about anything in the State.
Voters education using local dialects is highly required if Kogi must be REDEEMED.

Nigerians are disappointed. Why on Earth PMB endorsed a person whom brings suffering on his own people. Yet they are bragging that “change began with them”
Nigerians must have sense by force!

We are no longer drinking medication for other people’s illnesses. If 5000 can sustain them through another 4 years of oppression and penury, so be it
