My thought on Tinubu/Shettima ticket - Omo-Agege


Senator Ovie Omo-Agege

Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has said the emergence of Sen. Kashim Shettima (APC-Borno) as Vice Presidential candidate of the APC in the 2023 election was a major plus for the party.

His opinions are contained in a congratulatory message he personally signed on Monday in Abuja.

According to Omo-Agege, the APC Vice Presidential candidate is a detribalized thinker who will be a big asset to the party’s presidential ticket.

He remembered how Shettima, the former governor of Borno and current member of the National Assembly who represents Borno Central Senatorial District, was instrumental in his own ascension to the position of deputy senate president in 2019.

“He was and continues to be a major player, not only in the National Assembly but in our nation at large.”

“He is a large-hearted and forward-looking leader, inclusive in perspective and shuns all forms of bigotry.

“Our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, couldn’t have made a better choice.

“As former governor of a dominantly Kanuri state, he had among his closest aides, an Ibo Christian from Anambra, an Urhobo Christian from Delta Central Senatorial District, a Christian from Edo, a Yoruba Christian from the South-west, a Fulani man from Gombe, and a Hausa man from Zamfara,” he said.

The vice presidential candidate, he said, was a direct, forceful, and outspoken politician who spoke truth to power.

“Shettima is a dogged professional, a rare breed of a banker, an agricultural economist and politician who is an inspiration to a new generation of leaders.

“His rich profile in executive and legislative business, public and corporate governance will always be useful in steering the ship of state.

“I call on Nigerians to rally around the Tinubu/Shettima ticket and vote massively for APC in all positions at the 2023 General Elections”.
