Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has congratulated Senator Kashim Shettima over his nomination as the vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 presidential election.
This was contained in a statement issued by the commissioner for information, Mallam Muhammad Garba, a copy made available on Tuesday to pressmen in Kano.
Ganduje described Shetima as highly quick-witted and prepared for the Office of the Vice President.
According to him, during the pre-presidential primaries campaign, he shared a common experience with Shettima who played a major role and brings to fore his qualification, competence and exposure.
He expressed confidence that the representative of Borno Central Senatorial District and a former two-term governor of Borno state is a good choice capable of working with the presidential candidate to take Nigeria to greater heights.
The governor commended the APC flagbearer, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for making a choice in Shetima, and described the combination as an assurance of the success of the party at the polls.
Ganduje however called on Nigerians and particularly members of the APC to rally round its presidential candidate and his running mate to ensure success.
