Published by admin on

Lokoja, Kogi state – A post on the popular social networking site, Facebook, claims that Yahaya Bello, the immediate past governor of Kogi state, said he helped President Bola Tinubu to rig the 2023 election.

Recall Tinubu was declared the winner of Nigeria’s presidential election in 2023.

Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, announced the results on March 1, 2023.

Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) party garnered a total of 8,794,726 votes, defeating his two main rivals: Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who secured 6,984,520 votes; and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), who scored 6,101,533 votes.

The Facebook claim about Bello’s alleged statement on Tinubu reads:

“Tinubu is a thief, I helped him rigged the 2023 election, Peter Obi won him with great margin – EFCC has no right to arrest me because the President of Nigeria is not illegal – Yahaya Bello purportedly opens up.”
