2023: Nigeria Needs Tinubu Because He Is 'Hospitable' Like Sani Abacha - Shettima

Shettima Compares Bola Tinubu To Sani Abacha

The former Borno state governor, who spoke on Thursday at the 96th-anniversary celebration of the Yoruba Tennis Club in Ikoyi, Lagos state, said Tinubu is the only candidate that has the qualities that the country needs.

According to him, Nigeria needs a leader that is focused on promoting progress like Tinubu, who has the dose of hospitality that Abacha had, and the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari to get things done.

Shettima, who described Tinubu as an excellent example of national cohesion, also reeled out other attributes of former Nigerian leaders which he claims his principal possesses.

He said, ”We are convinced that the general political situation in Nigeria needs the competencies of a detribalised and committed Nigerian, like Tinubu to re-ignite the requisite values that can help us rededicate ourselves and all Nigerians to collectively tackle the challenges of national cohesion.

”In 2023, we need a Nigerian leader that has the humility and generosity of spirit of the likes of Gen. Yakubu Gowon. We need a leader that has Abnegation and commitment of a Muhammadu Buhari.

”We need a leader that has the work ethic and broad mindedness of an Olusegun Obasanjo. We need a leader that has the situational pragmatism and understanding of the Nigeria security, the maradonic skill of an Ibrahim Babangida.

”We need a leader with a vision and sense of responsibility and commitment and somebody who understands the national title of the nation of an Abdulsalami Abubakar and in our systemic circumstances, we need a leader with a dose of the hospitality of a Sani Abacha.

”We need a leader with the intellectual acumen, with the action to catapult this nation to a higher pedestrian. We need a leader who is not bound by regional or religious sentiment.

”We need a leader that has established such records of excellence and commitment to good governance. There is no one, with all due respect, that fits this than Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” he said.

Shettima said that the 2023 general elections were just a few months away and Nigerians had a choice to make, in the determination of their destiny.

He said that the Tinubu-Shettima ticket was dedicated to the building of that progressive and more united country, that would allow for harnessing the very best that the country had to offer.

According to him, the Tinubu-Shettima candidacy will rekindle the spirit of patriotism and draw on all the positive lessons from the commendable history of the Yoruba Tennis Club.

”We trust that we can count on your support in the days and months ahead and God willing when we assume power, we will ensure that stakeholder groups such as yours are constantly engaged in the continuous development of our nation building plans,” he said.

KanyiDaily recalls that Shettima had urged Nigerians to follow the man who understands and can solve Nigeria’s problem, promising that Tinubu would hit the ground running if elected into office in 2023.
