2023: Tinubu’ll give Nigerians friendly leadership like Abacha – Shettima
THE vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Kassim Shetima, says the country needs a leader with “a dose of hospitality” like the late former military Head of state, Sani Abacha.
According to Shettima, among all the presidential candidates, only Bola Tinubu has Abacha’s qualities.
The former Borno State Governor also reeled out other attributes of former Nigerian leader military leaders which he claims his principal possesses.
“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,” Shettima said today at the 96th anniversary of the Yoruba Tennis Club in Ikoyi, Lagos.
Speaking further, Shettima explained that the general political situation of the country needs the competencies of a detribalised and committed Nigerian like Tinubu.
He said that Tinubu, who has continued to enjoy the support of past leaders of the country, would be pragmatic in his approach to ensuring that the country experiences growth and progress through unity if elected.
“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 better than Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” the APC vice-presidential candidate said.
