Sheriff’s visit to President Buhari in Daurs comes just days after APC presidential candidate Bola Tinubu named former Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima as his running mate ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Despite opposition to the Muslim/Muslim ticket in 2023, Tinubu declared the lawmaker representing Borno Central senatorial district as APC vice-presidential candidate.

Some APC governors had paid a visit to the president in Daura, Kastina State, to express their support for the ticket and to pledge their support for the party in 2023.
