Kashim Shettima, a former governor of Borno State, has commented on his selection as Bola Tinubu’s running mate for the All Progressives Congress.


News Report had earlier stated that Tinubu has named the senate candidate for Borno Central as his running mate.

Shettima thanked the former governor of Lagos State for choosing him as the APC’s vice presidential candidate in a post on his Facebook page on Monday.

On Monday, the legislator met Tinubu at the Abuja airport.

The former Governor of Borno State claimed that he was at an orphanage in Maiduguri when Tinubu announced him as his running mate.

He further stated that the announcement came when he was trying to put a smile on the faces of the children who became orphans because of the Boko Haram attacks.

Shettima wrote, “Thank you for the trust Sir Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Before the official announcement of my nomination as the running mate to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. I intended to visit 2 orphanages in Maiduguri (the Abdulateef Zabadne Orphanage Foundation and the Future Assured College) to celebrate with the orphans in the spirit of the Sallah festival.”

“The announcement came in while I was mingling and trying to put a smile on the faces of the kids who mostly became orphans as a result of Boko Haram insurgence.”
