By Augustine Okezie, Katsina
The 2023 campaign posters of Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello on Tuesday adorned several major streets and roundabouts of Katsina metropolis, announcing his bid for the 2023 Presidential race.
The posters, which began flooding Katsina on Monday night, was being sponsored by a group known as Nigeria Youth Awareness Group (YAB), who was also behind its printing and circulation.
Investigation by The Nation on Tuesday revealed that the Bello campaign posters were pasted on major roundabouts in Katsina, including Kofar Kaura, Mani Road Junction, Liyafa Palace Junction, Kofar Kwaya and GRA Roundabout, among others.
Messages contained on the posters include “Yahaya Bello for President and Bello for a Generational Change, 2023.”
One of the youth pasting the posters at Kofar Kaura told The Nation that those who gave them the job promised to give them money after pasting them (the posters).
The boy, who pleaded that his name should not be mentioned for security reasons said: “My friend called me this morning and said I should join them to collect and paste the posters.”
An executive member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state who pleaded anonymity said he had also seen the posters, clarifying that no political party was indicated on it.
He said: “I have seen the posters too. Governor Bello is free to contest if he meets the guidelines and has the necessary qualifications.”
The campaign poster of Governor Bello, however, did not indicate on which position he will be contesting for and under which political platform.
