Kelechi Iheanacho joins Mikel Obi in APC politics

Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho has done what Mikel Obi recently did by visiting Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello, who is nursing a presidential ambition.

Iheanacho’s visit comes just a few days after former Super Eagles captain Mikel also visited the number one citizen of Kogi.

Bello expressed his delight at seeing Iheanacho while he also congratulated the Leicester City striker on his FA Cup title win.

In a post on his official Facebook page, Bello said: “Finally, Senior Man Kells Kelechi Iheanacho don cut soap for me!

“It is always a pleasure to meet a teaming, Patriotic, Vibrant #nigerian #Youth.“Congratulations once again on your #facup win

Although the reason for Iheanacho’s visit is not yet known, it might have to do with Bello’s ambition to contest for Nigeria’s presidency in 2023.

It’s now an open secret that Bello is interested in contesting Nigeria’s number one seat, and he has been seeking the support of prominent Nigerian youths.

However, there’s still a long way to go for Bello as he still needs to win the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential ticket.
