President Muhammadu Buhari has acknowledged the former two-term Borno State Governor and current Presidential running to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Kassim Shettima as an astute political leader.
The President said that Shettima, who is celebrating his 56th birthday today, September 2, is a leader and legislator, whose visionary and participatory style of leadership had continued to awe, outstand and inspire, setting a standard of resilience that has turned Borno State into an example of social, economic and infrastructural development.
He lauded Shettima “for his courage, foresight, sagacity and intellectualism, providing strong leadership for his state by keeping citizens unified and focused on the larger picture of a victorious and enlightened community, with clear results in education, health and road constructions.”
Buhari said that as the Vice Presidential Candidate of the APC, he is sure that Shettima’s experience as a banker, governor, Senator and scholar will prove relevant in governance at the national level.
The President prayed to Allah to equip Senator Shettima with more wisdom and strength as he serves the country.
