Dino Melaye reacts as Yahaya Bello says all Nigerians are asking him to run for president

Senator Dino Melaye, a former federal lawmaker from Kogi state, has mocked Governor Yahaya Bello over his statement that all Nigerians want him to run for president in 2023.

The Kogi state governor whose second term tenure ends in 2023 had said on Channels TV on Friday, May 14, that his response to all those who wanted him to be president would be in the affirmative.

Governor Bello added that Nigerians, including women, youths and "very objective elites" believe he has the capacity to do the job and unify the country.

He reiterated that he would give a positive response regarding the alleged calls from Nigerians asking him to succeed President Buhari in 2023.

The Kogi state governor also assured those supporting him for the presidency that he would not disappoint them.

However, responding to Bello's statement on Twitter, Senator Melaye tweeted:

"Ignorance is free and only compound fools pay for it. Eyah Kogi State. SDM"

Legit.ng had previously reported that Senator Dino Melaye threw a jibe at Governor Bello, his political archrival, saying he cannot be Nigeria’s president.
