Mr. Yahaya Bello, Kogi state governor has taken state influential traditional rulers to beg Mr. Muhammadu Buhari, the Nigeria President for his endorsement for the November 11 state governor election.
All the prominent traditional rulers in the state followed Bello to beg Buhari, except Mr. Ado Ibrahim, the Ohinoyi of Ibiraland.
Ibrahim has said he cannot support Bello because he finds it difficult to convince his subjects to vote for Bello citing the Governor failure as a reason why he can’t endorse him for a second tenure.
Insider source who spoke to WEST AFRICA REPORTERS (WAR) say, Buhari has asked the traditional rulers to go and convince their people to vote Bello and not to come to him for an endorsement.
Bello has lost popularity among his people, with many not wanting to vote him for a second term.
A situation he is working hard to ensure he gets his party ticket and run for the election.
