Tinubu announces Kashim Shettima as running mate
The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has announced Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate.
He announced this while addressing journalists in Katsina State on Sunday, according to a presidential aide, Buhari Sallau.
This is coming hours after Tinubu met with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), alongside Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari.
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State had on Saturday revealed that Tinubu had settled for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
Tinubu earlier chose Ibrahim Kabiru Masari, as placeholder for the vice-presidential slot.
Addressing journalists on Sunday, Tinubu said a substantive running mate would replace Ibrahim Masari.
When quizzed further on the substantive running mate, Tinubu said, “Kashim Shettima, I have not discussed with him but I have disclosed it to you.”
