Bola Tinubu Unveils Kashim Shettima As Running Mate
KanyiDaily recalls on July 10, Shettima was announced as the APC’s vice-presidential candidate after Ibrahim Masari stepped down as the “placeholder” running mate of Tinubu.
Tinubu officially unveiled Shettima as his running mate on Wednesday, July 20, at Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s former Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, disclosed this via a tweet this afternoon.
“Our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), unveils Senator Kashim Shettima as the running mate of our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” he tweeted.

This comes a few days after Kashim Shettima reacted to the outrage trailing the Muslim-Muslim ticket, saying Nigerians should look beyond religion when electing leaders, adding that there is no plan by Bola Tinubu to Islamise the country.
