Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi has met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, for what he said was “progressive” talks on national issues, including the state of insecurity.

Onogwu Muhammed, an aide to the governor disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, in Abuja.

“The governor, in his usual concern for matters relating to governance and security, was at the villa for progressive talks with the President,” Mr Muhammed said.

He said Mr Bello and the president had detailed discussions on politics and security. Mr Muhammed, however, failed to give further details on the visit.

“They shared ideas and also reached certain conclusions that I won’t want to disclose for confidentiality purposes,” he said.

Also, Mr Muhammed noted that the governor was one of the leading aspirants seeking to succeed Mr Buhari in 2023 and he had enjoyed support from different groups across the country.

He stated that earlier in January, no fewer than 600 women groups, drawn from different parts of the country converged on Abuja for a solidarity walk for Mr Bello to run for the presidential election.
