On Wednesday, a large crowd gathered at the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress in Abuja to witness a top presidential aspirant, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, obtain the party’s nomination form.
Bello, whose friends, supporters, well wishers and business associates raised over 800million naira in less than 2hours after the party announced sale of forms, became the first aspirant to purchase the APC nomination form for the 2023 presidential election. His scheduled presence drew thousands of youths, men, women, and stakeholders from various quarters to the APC secretariat.
According to previous reports, the governor of Kogi, who is known for his exceptional performance in security and education, has become the most sought-after candidate by Nigerians for the upcoming election.
The APC leadership is said to have thanked Bello for his contributions to the party’s growth and wished him luck in the May primary election.
