I’ll Hand Over power To Tinubu By God’s Grace – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari is optimistic that the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket would win the 2023 election.

The President remarked this on Wednesday at the State House in Abuja, in response to a flowery address by APC running mate and vice presidential candidate Senator Kashim Shettima.

“I will answer to your address when I pass over control to you and your superior. God willing, you are going to win,” he remarked.

Buhari, who met Shettima shortly after he was presented by the party leadership and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, remarked that he was extremely pleased with the selection of the former governor of Borno State as his running mate.

“I hope the best for you. Your consistency inside the party is highly regarded. You completed your two terms as Governor with distinction. You have maintained contact with your base. At each significant occasion or event, you demonstrate your continued support for your successor. This is laudable, he stated through his spokesman Garba Shehu in a statement.

In his remarks, the vice presidential candidate thanked the President for his “empathy, support, and positive influence” in his selection as the APC presidential candidate’s running mate.

He lauded the President for having “a special place in your heart for Borno and Northeast,” adding, “I can count twenty to thirty examples of your support that will be remembered.”

After many years of darkness, he acknowledged the formation of the North East Development Commission (NEDC) and the Independent Power Plant for Maiduguri by the NNPC, stating, “Words cannot express our gratitude for your support. We will be eternally appreciative”

The former governor of Borno State asked the president to thank his successor, Babagana Zulum, and the minister of state for agriculture, Mustapha Baba Shehuri, for refusing to run for vice president despite “repeated mention” of him and pressure from his fellow governors.

The candidate pledged to stay “faithful and devoted” to the President, stating that his Vice-Presidency will not be for the “troika of Hausa, Fulani, and Kanuri,” but rather for the entirety of Nigeria, regardless of ethnicity, religion, or geographical origin.
