Now that the dust has settled regarding the choice of Vice-Presidential Candidate for our our great party APC, all hands must be on deck to ensure victory.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has unveiled the choice of his VP candidate shortly after paying Sallah homage to President Mohammadu Buhari in Daura Kastina State on Sunday 9th July, 2023.
According to a press release issued on behalf of the frontline grassroots campaign organization for the APC flag bearer; South West Agenda for Asiwaju 2023 by its National Secretary Hon. Bosun Oladele, the group is of the conviction that APC will be stronger and the country will benefit immensely from the capabilities, leadership experience and the rich pedigree of its flag bearers.
The National Chairman of the group Senator ‘Dayo Adeyeye said; “the process of rebirth of our Country Nigeria has begun with this choice. Sen. Kashim Shetima is, intelligent, capable, loyal, dedicated and detribalized. He understand party politics and the dynamics of governance and leadership.
He has vast experience in Banking, he has been a lecturer at a University, he served in five different Ministries in Borno State as Commissioner, that is Ministries of Finance, Local Government, Agriculture, Health and Education before serving as Governor of the State for two term.
He is now a Senator. He has planted his foot prints in sand of time in Borno State and his legacy speaks volume. It is the first time in our democratic dispensation where the Joint ticket holders in any Party have served in the executive and legislative arms as Senators and Governors at different times before contesting for the Presidency.
Truly Nigerians will speak with their votes come 2023 on the basis of verifiable record of performances, experience and capabilities not on sentimental considerations regarding religion, ethnicity or any other extraneous dichotomy. It is true that “Iron sharpens iron the two will complement each other well, this combination is perfect.
Though Religion has been used to divide us as a people but humanity, patriotism and real desire for change will take root and bring us together as a strong, United and peaceful Country from 2023 with the emergence of Tinubu and Shettima as our new leaders as a country by the special grace of God”.
The group thanked President Mohammadu Buhari and the leadership of APC in approving the choice of Shettima as the running mate while seeking the support of Nigerians to take the opportunity it presents in writing a new chapter of Unity for the country by voting massively for Asiwaju Tinubu – Shettima ticket to break all shackles that have held us down as a nation and move ahead to build a new Country that we all can be proud of.
The release said “It is now time to double our efforts as SWAGA’23 in campaigning relentlessly for our flag bearers to win the 2023 elections.
Rather than dwell on issue of religion as a people, we should see ourselves as brothers and sisters and always remember that Asiwaju Tinubu himself is a moslem with a Christian as wife therefore he understands religion and it’s effects perfectly and he even understand good governance more”.
