Atiku Bagudu, governor of Kebbi, has expressed that governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are pleased with the choice of Kashim Shettima as the vice-presidential candidate of the party.
On Sunday, Bola Tinubu, APC presidential candidate, announced Shettima, former Borno governor, as his running mate for the 2023 general election.
Speaking on Monday after a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari in Daura, Katsina, Bagudu stated that the Tinubu-Shettima ticket is the “best team” for the presidency.
“Kashim Shettima is one of Nigeria’s finest and we believe he brings a lot of value to the presidential ticket,” Bagudu said.

“Governors are very very pleased. We are very very proud. We are equally very happy that the vice-presidential candidate is no less a person than Kashim Shettima and we believe that they will give traction to the campaign and complement all the achievements of the last seven years under President Muhammadu Buhari.”
