2023 Elections- Tinubu states reasons for choosing Shettima as his vice presidential candidate

Tinubu-and-Shettima

Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, explained why he selected Shettima to serve as his running mate in the 2023 election. 

He stated that the reason for choosing Shettima, was because of the strong leadership qualities his running mate possessed during his administration in Borno State.

Also, he believes Shettima will bring about a developing government.

However, he told the Christian Association of Nigeria that “Choosing a Christian running mate would have been easy but that is not the case”.

Many policy watchers have brought up several theories of why Tinubu chose a Muslim as his running mate, but it is quite surprising to see Tinubu’s practical political approach, than the ideal option of getting a Christian running mate.

Moreover, his “supposedly more formidable” opponent, Atiku Abubakar is a Northern Muslim who is positioned to amass votes from the North, hence, Tinubu plans to use Shettima’s Northern background to counter Atiku’s influence.
