Ibekimi Oriamaja Reports
Sen. Kashim Shettima, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Vice Presidential candidate, has dismissed the idea of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar and Labour Party’s Peter Obi seeking to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
The former Borno State Governor claimed that the APC challengers, particularly Obi, have nothing to offer Nigerians other than dubious statistics.
According to Track News, Shettima said this in Abuja on Thursday during a one-day symposium on deconstructing the Asiwaju manifesto “Renewed Hope 2023: Action Plan for a Better Nigeria.”
He boasted that the 2023 presidential election would be a watershed moment in Nigerian history, claiming that “Obi has nothing to offer except dubious statistics.”
Shettima went on to say that his principal, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has more excellent ideas than his opponents in the 2023 election, and that Atiku and Obi will suffer crushing defeats.
The APC Presidential Nomination Was Given To The Wrong Person – Kwankwaso
Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), claimed that the APC’s presidential ticket for 2023 was given to the wrong person.
According to Track News, the former Kano State Governor submitted this while speaking to a group of supporters in Ebonyi State yesterday.
Shettima was in Abakaliki on Wednesday to inaugurate his presidential campaign office ahead of the upcoming general elections.
Kwankwaso recalled how he helped President Muhammadu Buhari emerge as the APC’s presidential candidate in 2015.
He noted that Buhari won the party’s ticket for a second term at the time and also won the 2019 elections.
Kwankwaso, on the other hand, was concerned that the ruling party had chosen a former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as its presidential candidate for the 2023 election.
However, the presidential candidate did not elaborate on why he referred to the APC presidential flagbearer as the wrong choice for the ruling party.
Kwankwaso stated that Nigerians had a bad experience under the PDP administration before the APC came to power in 2015, but that the experience had worsened in the APC’s last 7-year reign.
