The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has announced Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate in the 2023 general elections.
He made the announcement on Sunday in Daura, the hometown of President Muhammadu Buhari in Katsina State.
Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State briefed reporters at the end of a close-door meeting that lasted about an hour with the President at his residence.
According to him, the choice of picking Shettima as his running mate is because of the former Borno State governor’s competency, capability, and reliability.
The APC presidential candidate was accompanied to Daura by Governor Aminu Masari shortly after his aircraft landed at the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Airport in Katsina State.
