WHY I PICK SHETTIMA AS RUNNING MATE – TINUBU
All Progressive Party Congress presidential candidate Bola Tinubu explained why he chose former Borno state governor Kasim Shettima as his vice presidential candidate in the 2023 presidential election.
Tinubu, who met with leaders of the Christian Society of Nigeria in Abuja on Wednesday, said Shettima’s choice was strategic, not religious.
Explaining to the CAN leadership Tinubu said, “Choosing a Christian running mate would have been easy but that is not the case.
“My choice of Shettima is borne out of the urgent need to address the challenges facing the country and Shettima possesses strong leadership abilities which he exhibited when he was the governor of Borno State. I wanted a progressive government that was why I selected Shettima.
“We have urgent challenges that do not depend on religious leanings but on the best of hands that can address it,” he added.
