Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi has pledged to restore the visions of the late Moshood Abiola (MKO), which is bringing hope to Nigerians and bridging all gaps for a prosperous country.

Bello said this while speaking with newsmen in Abuja following his official declaration to contest for President in 2023, at the Eagle Square, Abuja on April 2.

Bello who is running for Presidency under the All Progressives Congress (APC) also adopted the slogan for the 1993 General elections, “Hope 2023…Bridging the gap.”

Bello also said that he hopes to achieve the vision building on the legacies of President Muhammadu Buhari who also acknowledged the late MKO and named the Abuja National Stadium after him.

On why he chose the slogan, Bello explained that every Nigerian crave for hope for a better Nigeria, goes to bed and wakes up daily hoping that tomorrow shall be better.

Bello who lauded President Buhari for his achievements across all boards, looking at where the country was before he took over, said he was running for President to build on the successes of Buhari.

Meanwhile,A daughter of the late Chief MKO Abiola and popular TV presenter, Victoria Tundun, has berated her sister, Hafsat Abiola-Costello, for using their father’s name to promote the presidential bid of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.

Abiola-Costello, who is the director-general of the Yahaya Bello presidential campaign organisation had on Sunday appeared on AriseNews where she disclosed that the similarities between her late father and Bello encouraged her to take the job.

But reacting to the development on Monday while co-anchoring AriseNews’ breakfast programme, The Morning Show, alongside Dr. Ruben Abati and Rufai Oseni, Tundun said her sister did not have the right to “exploit” their father’s name for Governor Bello’s benefit.

She said it was even more “unfortunate” that the late Abiola’s child would be involved in such political gimmicks.

A visibly angry Tundun added that her half-sister should have focused on elaborating her principal’s plans for Nigeria instead of dragging their father’s name through the mud.
