Road that led us to Tinubu didn’t happen by chance, says Shettima

The vice-president praised Tinubu for sacrificing his
resources and goodwill for Nigeria’s democracy.

 

“The road that led us to Bola Tinubu did not happen by
chance. This is a man who has shown a profound commitment towards improving
governance in this nation,” he said.

 

“He has shown zeal, passion, knowledge and capacity. I am a
son of the north, we were one of the first sets of leaders that canvassed for
support for Asiwaju. When many of his contemporaries were struggling to have a
seat at the dinner table in Abuja, he was sacrificing his resources, and his
goodwill towards the enthronement of democracy in this country.

 

 “When Atiku Abubakar
was harassed, intimidated, dehumanised and chased out of the PDP. It was in
Bourdillon that he ran to for support and it was there he got the needed
support and contested for the presidency of this country.

 

“Four years later, the same Asiwaju supported another
northerner to contest for the presidency of this nation. He is currently the
NSA — Mallam Nuhu Ribadu. Without the support of Asiwaju, former President
Muhammadu Buhari could not have emerged as a candidate of APC and without the
support of the south-west, he could not have won the 2015 election.”

 

Shettima said the 2023 presidential election was a payback
time for Tinubu.

 

“I will say 2023 was payback time. There is honour even
among thieves; there is honour even among politicians and we had to give it
back to Bola Tinubu what he had given to the north,” he said.
