The Vice-president candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Kashim Shettima, has revealed that he never supported the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in order to be his running mate.
Shettima disclosed this on Wednesday in Abuja when he was formally presented as the party’s Vice-Presidential candidate by the APC National Chairman, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu.
Commenting on his nomination and the APC Muslim-Muslim ticket, Shettima, who currently represents Borno Central in the National Assembly, said, “I don’t intend to be Vice-President to represent members of the Muslim community. No, the Sultan of Sokoto is capable of doing that.
“I do not seek to be the Vice-Presidential of Nigeria to protect the interest of the Hausa Kanuri tribe in the North, no.
“Asiwaju Bola Tinubu believes in the Nigerian project, and I swear in the name of God that I never supported Asiwaju to be his running mate.
“I supported the project because of moral compulsion.”
