Yahaya Bello made the remarks while speaking as a guest of BBC Pidgin.
When questioned about his chances of clinching the APC ticket if Tinubu will contest, Yahaya Bello opined that “Tinubu knows his limitations and would rather advocate for the younger generation to take over the leadership of the country, deeming the APC chieftain as a “Kingmaker”.
“Our national leader, Tinubu, is a revered statesman, well-respected by all, including me. I know that he is a smart mentor. He has brought up a lot of leaders in this country. He’s a wonderful kingmaker. And I know surely that he wants this country to be on auto-cruise very soon.
“He knows his qualities and limitations. He knows who will be able to drive this country to a successful future. He will be part of those that will make a better and youthful president for this country. I believe in his judgement,” he said.
Yahaya Bello has already declared his intent to become President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor in 2023.
