2023: Tinubu has Abacha’s hospitality and Buhari’s commitment — Shettima


The Vice-Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has stated the party’s flagbearer for the 2023 presidential election, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has the hospitality of late military dictator, Sani Abacha, and the commitment of incumbent president, Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaking on Thursday at the 96th-anniversary celebration of the Yoruba Tennis Club in Ikoyi, Lagos state, Shettima said Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the APC, is the only candidate that has the qualities that the country needs.

He said that in recent times, Nigerians had witnessed increasingly alarming tendencies, toward a loss of belief in the idea of national cohesion.

According to him, nation-building is a continuous work-in-progress, and all must always maintain optimism.

The vice presidential candidate said that it was against the backdrop that Tinubu emerged as the presidential candidate of the APC.

”We are convinced that the general political situation in Nigeria needs the competencies of a detribalised and committed Nigerian, like Tinubu, to re-ignite the requisite values that can help us rededicate ourselves and all Nigerians to collectively tackle the challenges of national cohesion,” NAN quoted him as saying.

”In 2023, we need a Nigerian leader that has the humility and generosity of spirit of the likes of Gen. Yakubu Gowon. We need a leader that has Abnegation and commitment of a Muhammadu Buhari.

”We need a leader that has the work ethic and broad-mindedness of an Olusegun Obasanjo. We need a leader that has the situational pragmatism and understanding of the Nigeria security, the maradonic skill of an Ibrahim Babangida.

”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.

”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 than Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” he said.
