Yahaya Bello Meets Tinubu Over Second Term Bid

Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello last night visited the National Leader of All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in his Lagos home

The visit may not be unconnected with Kogi State governorship election which is coming up later this year.

Bello was declared winner of the 2015 Kogi State gubernatorial election after he was chosen on the platform of the All Progressives Congress as the replacement for the late Abubakar Audu who originally won the election but died before the result was declared.

The replacement, which was facilitated by former APC Chairman, Chief John Odigie Oyegun and some party chieftains, did not go down well with Tinubu and his political structure who had wanted Hon. James Faleke, the deputy gubernatorial candidate to replace Audu.

Reports have it that Bello may not be offered the ticket to seek re-election under the ruling APC due to his below average performance since he became governor of Kogi State about three years ago.
