I’ve Made 2,000 Millionaires In Kogi, Says Gov Bello



Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello on Friday said his administration had turned no fewer than 2,000 persons in Kogi into millionaires.

He spoke in Abuja at the ongoing “Second Annual GYB Seminar for Nigeria’s Political and Crime Correspondents”.

Bello also expressed the wish to appoint Nigeria’s first female Vice President, if he gets his party’s presidential ticket for the 2023 elections and its approval to choose his running mate.

The Governor was responding to a question about his economic plans for the country including his recent pledge to make 20 million Nigerians millionaires by 2030 if he succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We have made nothing less than 2,000 millionaires in Kogi,” Bello said.

On his choice of VP, he added: “If I am given the free hand to choose, I will not leave the constituency of my mother. I would love to have the first female VP in 2023.”

Last Saturday, Bello formally declared to run for President in 2023, with a promise to build on Buhari’s legacy by adopting the Igbo apprenticeship system to create millionaires.
