Northern Group Says Femi Fani-Kayode And Yahaya Bello Are Driven By Selfish Interest.
The coalition of Northern groups (CNG) has disclosed that former Nigerian minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode and current Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello are both driven by selfish interests ahead of 2023 general elections.
Recall that the president of the Amalgamated Union Of Foodstuffs And Cattle Dealers Of Nigeria (AUFCDN), Muhammad Tahir had earlier disclosed that the group agreed to call of their strike because, the federal government of Nigeria has agreed to pay them N4.75bn as compensation. But, speaking earlier today, the spokesman of CNG, Suleiman Abdul-Azeez said both Femi Fani-Kayode and Yahaya Bello met with the union to propagate their own agenda. He said both politicians do not have the interest of the Northerners at heart, rather they only made fake promises for them.

Will Femi Fani-Kayode and Governor Yahaya Bello be good combination for presidency?
