Former Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima has been named the All Progressives Congress, or APCrunning ,’s partner for the 2023 presidential election.
On Wednesday, Shettima was introduced during a gathering in Abuja.
Bashir Ahmad, the former Personal Assistant on New Media for President Muhammadu Buhari, revealed this via a tweet.
“Our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), unveils Senator Kashim Shettima as the running mate of our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” he tweeted.
Following his selection as the APC’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu chose Shettima to serve as his running mate.
Shettima’s selection by Tinubu has continued to spark debate throughout Nigeria.
The majority of Nigerians preferred that the APC presidential candidate choose a Christian as his running partner, but he ultimately chose a Northern Muslim.
