Rights activist, Deji Adeyanju, has blasted Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, over remarks made by the latter concerning his ambition to run for President in 2023.
The co-convener of Concerned Nigerian group said that contrary to Bello’s earlier claim that he can rule the nation, the Kogi governor cannot even preside over a pig farm.
Bello had earlier claimed that Nigerians from all sections of the country were urging him to run for the presidency in 2023.
“Nigerians, the youth and women including very objective elites, are asking me to run for President in 2023,” he said.
However, in a tweet, Adejanyu wrote, “News: All Nigerians are asking me to run for President in 2023, I will not disappoint – Yahaya Bello.
“Me -Yahaya Bello is not fit to be President of a pig farm. Kogi State is the worst governed state in Nigeria. Civil servants are feeding from dustbins.”
The Kogi Government still owes civil servants outstanding salaries.
According to a report in 2019, Bello’s administration is yet to pay over 38 months salaries to workers in the state.
