2023: Kwankwaso pleased with Tinubu-Shettima alliance

Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano State, expressed his satisfaction with Bola Tinubu’s selection as running mate for the 2023 presidential election on Monday.

The former governor of Borno, Kashim Shettima, was named Bola Tinubu’s running mate by the All Progressives Congress.

In an interview with Arise News, Kwankwaso referred to the 55-year-old former banker-turned-senator for Borno Central District as a nice man.

“Shettima was my colleague as a governor during my second term. He’s a gentleman, he’s a good man. I wish him well.

“I’m so happy with that combination; my only worry is the platform ( the APC). This platform…I don’t know.

“Bola Tinubu is a strategist. I had reasons to sit with him an uncountable number of times from 1992 till date.

“I wish I will see him to ask what he’ll do differently from what President  Muhammadu Buhari is doing today. That is my serious concern for him”, he said.

Kwankwaso, 65, the New Nigeria Peoples Party’s presidential candidate, served as Kano Central Senatorial District’s representative from June 2015 to June 2019. He is a former senator and former defense minister.
