Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello has expressed confidence in contesting for the presidential ticket in the forthcoming 2023 election.
The Governor who was represented by the Secretary to the Kogi State Government, Folashade Ayoade, said this on Monday in Abuja during the grand finale of the Nigerian Women Arise for Nigeria awareness campaign where he was honoured with the distinguished ‘Hero of Women Inclusion Award’.
While responding to a question on whether Governor Bello would support a female candidate Ayoade said, “Why not? With the example that he has in Kogi, he has been a strong supporter of women and the governor is all out to support any woman that wants to contest.
“I want to plead with women to come out and vie for any position they want. God has made women special. Enough of men harassing women and pushing them back. Women are strong to support each other.”
