The governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration transformed Nigeria to be better than many countries including the developed ones.
Bello, who spoke at the flag-off of the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign in Jos, Plateau State, on Tuesday, said Buhari had done well in the area of infrastructural development.
He said that Buhari inherited an economy when the world was in recession but turned it around.
The Governor expressed hope that Buhari would hand over power to the party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, to continue the good works.
The youth coordinator in the APC presidential council said Tinubu would replicate his works as Lagos State governor in Nigeria if elected president.
Speaking on Buhari’s strides, Bello said: “You have done so well in terms of infrastructure and our economy. You inherited it when there were recessions and challenges across the world. Today in Nigeria, we are better than so many countries, including developed ones.
“Your Excellency, you have done it from 2015 to 2019, from 2019 till date – you are going to handover Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu so he can continue to replicate what he did in Lagos and what Alhaji Shettima did in Borno state across this country.”
