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.
