Just after winning at the Supreme Court on Tuesday, September 20, the governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello addressed President Muhammadu Buhari as the greatest.
Bello who spoke to journalists in Abuja appreciated his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) for giving him the opportunity to serve as a governor.
“I want to thank my great party, I want to thank specifically, our dear president, President Muhammadu Buhari, the greatest president on the surface of this earth, who as the leader of our party believes in equity and justice,” Bello said.
The Kogi state governor said, President Muhammadu Buhari’s virtues as the greatest president on earth has made it possible for transparency in Nigeria.
Bello said: “He also allowed all that to play out in all we are seeing today.” Bello’s victory was sustained on Tuesday, September 20, by the Supreme Court after series of judicial battle with his fellow contestants – former Kogi state governor Idris Wada and James Faleke, a running mate to the late Kogi APC flag bearer Audu Abubakar.
The duo in various their arguments argued that Bello did not merit to become the state governor since he never participated in the November and December 2015 election in the state.
