Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State has explained the choice of Senator Kashim Shettima as the Vice-Presidential Candidate APC as a masterstroke.
In a statement released Tuesday by his representative, Ismaila Uba Misilli, the governor said picking the former Borno state governor will assist in the party’s smooth sail to triumph in the forthcoming governmental election.
He noted that as a dedicated and devoted party male, Senator Shettima is a fantastic possession to the judgment APC and will add immeasurable value to the governmental ticket.
” Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not have actually made a better option. Shettima is an extremely cerebral, eloquent, competent, brave and cosmopolitan leader who has actually succeeded in structure bridges, track record and friendships throughout the nation; and I think he has the capacity, acumen and political sagacity to deputise the Jagaban Borgu,” he said.
While congratulating the one-time Chairman of the Northern Nigeria Governors Forum, Governor Yahaya stated with his background as former speaker, lender, farming economic expert, ex-governor and parliamentarian with visionary and patriotic ideologies, Shettima will be a ’round peg in a round hole’ as a vice president.
According to him, the Tinubu/Shettima ticket is an exceptional combination that has actually already offered APC an edge and set the opposition off-balance, “as we approach the elections.”.
He assured of his individual commitment and support of the APC in Gombe State to the Tinubu/ Shettima ticket, along with victory for the party in 2023 elections.
