Tinubu confirms Muslim-Muslim ticket

Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for president, has named Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate for the general elections in 2023.

In Daura, Katsina State, the hometown of President Muhammadu Buhari, he made the news on Sunday.

Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, told media about the selection; specifically at the conclusion of an hour-long private meeting with Buhari at the President’s residence.

The APC stalwart claimed that Shettima was chosen because he is “competent, capable, reliable and able to be nominated as a running mate.” Shettima formerly served as governor of Borno State.

Tinubu was accompanied to Daura by Governor Aminu Masari shortly after his aircraft landed at the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Airport in Katsina State.

Reacting to the development, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN), described Senator Kashim Shetima as a worthy choice of a running mate to Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Mr Keyamo was of the opinion that Tinubu had made a great choice.

The minister who aired his view on Twitter described Shettima as a “Quintessential banker and economist, suave gentleman and politician,” who is intellectually fertile and economically sound.

He further stated that the former Borno governor is “inter-generationally mobile (he’s young, yet experienced), fiercely loyal, phenomenally complimentary to Bola Ahmed Tinubu”.

Kashim Shettima is the perfect choice as VP,” Keyamo declared.
