    The Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have hailed the combination of the party’s presidential flagbearer, Bola Tinubu, and his running mate, Kashim Shettima.

    Recall that Tinubu had on Sunday chosen Shettima, a former Governor of Borno State and a Muslim as his running mate despite calls in some quarters against the decision.

    However, Tinubu’s decision has generated a lot of reactions on and off social media. Some Nigerians are of the opinion that the former Lagos Governor should have picked a Christian as his running mate.

    Reacting to the choice of Shettima, the APC governors described the Tinubu/Shettima ticket as a formidable team that will win the 2023 presidential election for the ruling party.

    The Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, made this known after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Daura, Katsina State, on Monday.

    Bagudu also commended Tinubu for choosing Shettima as his running mate, saying that the former Governor of Borno State is the right candidate for the party’s vice-presidential slot.

    He added that Shettima is one of Nigeria’s finest who will bring his wealth of experience to bear in the governance of the nation.

    We are quite pleased that this formidable team of Tinubu and Shettima will usher in a new Nigeria in 2023.

    “Kashim Shettima is one of Nigeria’s finest who will bring his wealth of experience to bear in the governance of the nation.

    “Nigerians should be convinced that this is about the best team from the party for the 2023 general elections,” he said.
