President Muhammadu Buhari has wished Kashim Shettima, the Vice-Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the best ahead of the 2023 elections.

He was responding to a speech made by Shettima on Wednesday during his unveiling.

“I will respond to your speech when I am handing over to you and your boss. God willing, you are going to win,” Buhari was quoted as saying in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

The President who received the vice-presidential candidate shortly after he was unveiled by the leadership of the party and the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, said he was very happy with the choice of the former governor of Borno State as running mate.

“I wish you the best. Your consistency in the party is very respectful. You served your two terms as governor and finished well. You have kept touch with your base.

“At every important occasion or event, you are maintaining support for the one who succeeded you. This is commendable,“ he said.

The President expressed strong optimism that the APC ticket would emerge victorious in the 2023 elections.
