Kashim Shettima, the vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said the country needs a leader with “a dose of hospitality” like the former military head of state, Sani Abacha.
Mr Shettima noted that only Bola Tinubu, among other presidential candidates, has Mr Abacha’s qualities.
The running mate also reeled out other attributes of former Nigerian leader military leaders which he claims his principal possesses.
“We need a leader with a vision and sense of responsibility and commitment, and somebody who understands the national title of the nation of an Abdulsalami Abubakar, and in our systemic circumstances, we need a leader with a dose of the hospitality of a Sani Abacha,” Mr Shettima said on Thursday at the 96th anniversary of the Yoruba Tennis Club in Ikoyi, Lagos.
Mr Abacha was Nigeria’s military head of state from November 17, 1993 to June 8, 1998 before he suddenly died.
Mr Abacha’s military junta assumed global notoriety for its brutal style and scant regard for human rights and massive crackdown on the media, civil rights groups, and pro-democracy campaigners.
Speaking further, Mr Shettima explained that the general political situation of the country needs the competencies of a detribalised and committed Nigerian like Mr Tinubu.
He said that Mr Tinubu, who has continued to enjoy the support of past leaders of the country, would be pragmatic in his approach to ensuring that the country experiences growth and progress through unity if elected.
“We need a leader with the intellectual acumen, with the action to catapult this nation to a higher pedestrian. We need a leader who is not bound by regional or religious sentiment.
“We need a leader that has established such records of excellence and commitment to good governance. There is no one, with all due respect, that fits this better than Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” the APC vice-presidential candidate said.
During the recent Nigerian Bar Association Conference in 2022, Shettima, in that Video, the VP Candidate of APC said he will be in charge of SECURITY and Lead Nigerian Troops, while Bola Tinubu will Handle the ECONOMY.
Also, the former Borno State governor and APC and vice presidential candidate, in November 2017, speaking at the Yar’Adua Central Business District, at the book launch of a former Minister of Youths and Sports Development under the Goodluck Jonathan administration, Bolaji Abdullahi, dismissed the clamour for restructuring when he said, “Restructuring my foot, To hell with Restructuring”.
COMMENT: This is the mindset of APC’s potential vice president and president should Tinubu be elected….How do you expect these candidates to support Nigerians for a change in a system that favor the northern oligarchy and their cronies, a system that steals the resources and destinies of the Nigerian masses, and by extension, the black race?
This is a man who allegedly romanced with Boko Haram, and now we know he admires Abacha?
Tinubu posesses the “humility and generosity of spirit” of Yakubu Gowon, the “work ethic and broadmindedness” of Olusegun Obasanjo, the “situational pragmatism and…Maradonic skill” of Ibrahim Babangida, “the hospitality” of Sani Abacha, “the vision and sense of responsibility” of Abdulsalami Abubakar, and the “abnegation and commitment” of Muhammadu Buhari. – Shettima.
