APC Youths Bash Gov Bello over Presidential Ambition, Parley with Fani Kayode

The youth wing of the ruling All Progressives Congress, All Progressives Youth Forum (APYF)  has bashed Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State over his presidential ambition, and recent meetings with the former Minister for Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode. 

In a statement released by the Publicity Secretary, Mohammed Abdullahi, the forum noted their disappointment, advising the Governor to retrace his steps and relationship with Kayode. 

Part of the statement reads: "We don't know and do not care to know whatever selfish interests anyone may have at this point. But we must especially express our disappointment with the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello.

"If he is a good student of history, we expect him to know by now that desperation has never won anybody the presidential seat in Nigeria.We advise him to tread with caution and remember that if it were for strategy and scheming,he would never have even been a Gov. to begin with.

"It is a pity that Gov. Yahaya Bello who first became governor at a little over 40 is showing this level of brashness and untempered ambition.

"At just 45, what's the need to be so blinded by ambition that the very people who publicly humiliate the same President Buhari whom Gov. Bello said he could die for are now his preferred political men-fridays. It is quite unfortunate.

"If Gov. Yahaya Bello cares about how posterity will judge him, he will immediately retrace his steps and relationship with a character like FFK.

"The work for which he was elected in Kogi State deserves much more attention than staying in Abuja trying to offload all manners of political liabilities on a party that has done so much for him.

"As custodians of the ideals and legacy of the APC, we must reiterate our willingness and readiness to stand up to anyone, no matter how highly placed, who think they can use the party to prosecute whatever selfish ambitions they may have.

"While some individuals may have satisfied their desires on the platform of the party and therefore care less what becomes of it, we still have a future with the APC."

The youths vowed to prevent anyone from cutting short the growth of the party and its principled politics. 

They also called on the party elders and leaders to call the present managers of the party to order.
