Immediately he left IBB and Abdulsalami’s houses, Shettima visited the Emir of Minna, Alhaji Umar Farouk Bahago. Shettima said the former Nigerian leaders were stakeholders who are beacons of hope to the nation and as such the next administration will continue to tap from their wealth of experience.

The vice president-elect accompanied by the governor of Niger State Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello on the visit to the two former Nigeria leaders told journalists that the elder statesmen as stakeholders, have a lot to offer to humanity and the nation especially on issues that affect the nation.

“Stakeholders are beacons of hope and will continue to tap from their wealth of experience. They have a lot to offer the nation and humanity. We will continue to reach out to them for their advice, inputs and perspectives on issues confronting us as a nation,” he said.

On what Niger State should expect in the next administration at the federal level, Senator Shettima assured Nigerlites of a new lease of life saying “there is no cause for alarm as the challenges of the state will be adequately addressed.”
