Ally to former Vice President, Alh. Atiku Abubakar and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Segun Sowunmi, has asked Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Sowunmi, a spokesman for the PDP Presidential Campaign Council in 2019, remarked during an interview with Channels TV on Friday, January 7, episode of Politics Today.
Sowunmi said he would support Bello to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari other than a member of the main opposition party.
“Why? He (Bello) is young, he ticks your box. He’s been a governor. I have been watching the kinds of things he’s doing, I read the kind of people who are endorsing him, but I know that he is in the party where they will never look at him.
“So maybe I will just say to my friend Yahaya, ‘come to PDP; even if you don’t get presidency now, we will make you a president one day in our party’. But if you stay with that party, I don’t trust them. They don’t like young people … the only thing they are interested in is their narrow fixation on what they interpret to be the Nigeria of now.”
