Senate President Ahmad Lawan said the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu made an excellent choice with his selection of Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate.

Tinubu announced the selection of the former governor of Borno State as his running mate after visiting President Muhammadu Buhari in Daura, Katsina State on Sunday.

Lawan in a message of congratulations to Shetimma on behalf of the North East Caucus of APC on Monday noted that former two-term Governor of Borno State entered public service with impeccable credentials.

Shettima, he added, has burnished by demonstrating great competence, integrity and courage in all the positions that he has held.

He added that the former governor has what it takes to be an excellent vice president of Nigeria.

“His background in academics and the private sector prepared him for the achievements that he has recorded in politics as Governor and since his election to the Senate in 2019.
