A pro-Yahaya Bello group has berated the Tinubu Support Group (TSG) over a statement it made concerning the Kogi State governor.
Recall that the Yahaya Bello during an interview asked the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, to drop his presidential ambition.
Yahaya Bello, while stating that whatever pact Tinubu has with Buhari was not binding, he urged the former Lagos governor to give way for his ‘children’ to govern.
Angered by the governor’s comments the TSG described him as a failure and a disgrace to the youths.
The pro-Tinubu group called on Bello to ask God and Kogi people for forgiveness over his failure as governor.
Reacting, the Governor Yahaya Bello to President Yahaya Bello (GYB2PYB) stated that the pro-Tinubu group lacked knowledge of happenings in Kogi State.
In a statement by its director, Oladele Nihi, the GYB2PYB described the statement by TSG as a stain on he struggles of the Nigerian youths.
The group said: “Our attention has been drawn to the viral report on social media by a group masquerading as Tinubu Support Group, and it’s pertinent we set the records straight for the public to be cognizant with the realities on ground.
“The pettiness of the Tinubu Support Group is outrageous and abhorrent. It is a stain on the struggles of Nigerian youths who are trying all they could to take over the driver seat of the country and get fitted into the country’s corridors of power.
“One could easily pardon the director of TSG, Comrade Ibrahim’s high level of ignorance because it’s obvious he is less informed as to the happenings in and around Kogi State.
He (Ibrahim) claimed Governor Bello to be owing workers in the State and as such, should not be considered for the apex seat in the country.”
While describing Bola Tinubu as one from an analogue age, the group asked the TSG to fortify itself with information when trying to sell its candidate.
The pro-Bello group stated that the Kogi governor is not only paying workers their salary in full, but has also given grant-in-aid health insurance schemes to workers in the state.
“Governor Yahaya Bello is occupied with the execution of several road projects across the state’s three senatorial district,” the group said.
“The state’s capital is currently witnessing a tremendous transformation different from what has been experienced in previous administrations.
“Recently, Lokoja the Kogi State capital ranked as the 4th fastest growing city in the world.
“The United States marked Kogi State as a safe zone for her citizens because Kogi State being the safest state in Northern Nigeria, and one of the safest in the country.
“We as an organisation are refusing to allow the likes of Comr. Ibrahim and his cohorts drag the country to oblivion, and depriving us of growth by refusing the aged fishes to test new waters.
“We therefore advise, that before a so-called Director General of a group supporting one of the country’s most highly decorated political icon comes out to talk low on someone’s personality, adequate research should be carried out and not ejaculate without a valid backing.”
