The Kogi State Governo has said he will contest to become President after the 2023 presidential election.
This comes after he failed to get the All Progressives Congress presidential ticket.
Speaking on Wednesday, Bello said he was just testing the microphone after garnering 47 votes in last week’s elections.
He spoke shortly after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to him, he came to see the president on a thank-you visit for letting him participate in the highly contested exercise.
He noted that his recent attempt for the ticket was to “test the mic,” adding that his next attempt would be “supersonic.”
On the hunt for a running mate for Tinubu, he noted that competence should take precedence above other factors.
He said the Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket, the major consideration for selection should be deliverability.
To his supporters, Bello appealed for continued assurance in his presidential bid saying “sometimes you win some and sometimes you lose.”
He urged them to support the current flag bearer in next year’s elections.
