The alleged Presidential ambition of the Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello may have hit a brick wall in the northeast region as the northeast lawmakers association has denied endorsing the Governors rumoured ambition.
Recall the group had met on Thursday under the aegis of the Conference of Nigeria State Legislatures, North-East zone to deliberate on the issues surrounding the 2023 elections.
After the meeting, some information had leaked to the media that the group had after their gathering, declared their support for the alleged Presidential ambition of the Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello.
The rumour was debunked by the Gombe Assembly’s Deputy House Leader, Sadam Bello (Funakaye North) and Adamu Sale Pata (Yamaltu East), on behalf of their colleagues.
The lawmakers distanced themselves from the said endorsement of the Kogi state governor and declared that the information was never a part of their communique.
The group also gave one major reason why they cannot support Bello’s Presidential ambition
The group noted that they will only tow the direction laid down by the party leader in the state who is the governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya.
They further noted that they were waiting on the governor to finish his consultations over 2023 and whatever information he gives them, they would abide by it.
They wondered why anyone would associate them with an endorsement that has not been sanctioned by their leader and state Governor.
