The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN) says the former Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, is perfect as running mate to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
Keyamo Backs Tinubu’s Choice Of Shettima
KanyiDaily recalls that Tinubu had announced Shettima as his running mate, saying the former Borno governor was selected because he is “competent, capable, reliable and able to be picked as a running mate”.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter page, Keyamo also described Shettima as a “suave gentleman & politician” who is “intellectually fertile, economically sound, [and] intergenerationally mobile”.
The minister added that the former governor is the perfect choice as vice president because he is “fiercely loyal” and “phenomenally complimentary” to Tinubu.
He wrote, “Quintessential banker & economist, suave gentleman & politician, intellectually fertile, economically sound, intergenerational mobile (he’s young, yet experienced), fiercely loyal, phenomenally complementary to @officialABAT; Sen. Kashim Shettima is the perfect choice as VP.”
Before he was selected, Kashim Shettima had called on the APC to give its presidential ticket to Bola Tinubu, stressing that it would be “catastrophic” for the ruling party if it fields another aspirant.
