Gov Yahaya gives verdict on Tinubu’s running mate

Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State on Tuesday described the choice of former governor of Borno, Kashim Shettima as Vice Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a good decision.

Yahaya claimed the decision would guarantee victory for the APC in next year’s general elections.

He said this in a statement in Gombe by Mr Ismaila Uba-Misilli, the Director-General, Press Affairs, Gombe Government House.

The governor said the choice of Shettima was a masterstroke that would facilitate the party’s smooth sailing to victory in the upcoming 2023 presidential elections.

According to Yahaya, the former Borno State governor is a committed and loyal party man and a great asset to the ruling party.

Yahaya stated that Shettima would add “immeasurable” value to the APC presidential ticket.

”Asiwaju will not have made a better choice. The former Borno state governor is a highly cerebral, eloquent, competent, courageous and cosmopolitan leader,” Yahaya said.

“Shettima has succeeded in building bridges, reputation and friendships across the country; and I believe he has the capacity, acumen and political sagacity to deputise the Jagaban.

“With his background as a former lecturer, banker, agricultural economist, ex-governor and parliamentarian with visionary and patriotic ideologies, Sen. Shettima will be a ’round peg in a round hole’ as a vice president.”
