All Progressives Congres Vice-Presidential candidate Kashim Shettima has said that the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, would address the vex issues of insecurity, bad economy and other challenges confronting the nation if elected as next president in 2023.
He stated this on Monday at the opening ceremony of the 2022 Nigerian Bar Association’s Annual General Conference held at the Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos.
The former Borno State governor also said at the conference themed ‘Bold Transitions’, that Tinubu would replicate the “wonders” in Borno and Lagos states if elected president.
He spoke on a panel session immediately after Peoples Democratic Party’s Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar; and shortly before Labour Party’s Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi; amongst other panelists.
Shettima said, “Nigerians have the capability to see through the worn-out rhetoric and sophistry of pretentious politicians. Nigerians should follow the man wey know the road. From day one, we will hit the ground running. We’ll promptly address the issue of the economy, ecology, and security.
“And we have the antecedents. I built some of the best schools in Nigeria. Go to Borno and see wonders; you will never believe that it is a state in a state of war.
“So, we are going to replicate our achievements in Lagos, in Borno and some of the frontline states so that our nation will be a better place. The fundamental issue is pure leadership.”
