Mikel Obi, over the weekend said that the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello is the best candidate to lead the country.

What the hell is Mikel Obi doing with Yahaya Bello and where did he "hear and read all those good things" about that governor from?

Whatever Yahaya Bello is paying Mikel,Okocha,Kanu & the entire old Eagles to support him is no joke.They all can't be stupid at the same time for free.

You arrive a town in an helicopter & land on a sandy football field, drive through the poverty stricken town on a terribly bad road to the govt house, only to tells us that that Chalatant is the best man for Nigeria? Mikel or whatever ur name is, you no well.

John Mikel Obi shouldn't allow his football fame be ridiculed by his exasperating political utterance. I'd advise he stays off.
