Tinubu picks Shettima as running mate

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress and former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has announced Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate.

Tinubu announced this while addressing journalists after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Katsina State on Sunday.

KEMI FILANI NEWS reported that Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje had revealed that Tinubu had settled for a Muslim-Muslim ticket on Saturday.

Recall that Tinubu had earlier chosen Ibrahim Kabiru Masari as a placeholder for the vice-presidential slot.

Addressing journalists on Sunday, Tinubu said a substantive running mate would replace Ibrahim Masari.

He said, “Kashim Shettima, I have not discussed with him, but I have disclosed it to you.”
