BREAKING: Tinubu Picks Former Borno Governor Shettima As Running Mate

The 2023 Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has confirmed Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate, according to Vanguard.

Agency reporters had earlier on Sunday reported that the vice-presidential candidate will be unveiled to President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the leader of the party in his hometown in Daura, Katsina State on Sunday (today).

President Buhari has been in Daura since Friday for the Eid-el Kabir celebration.

Recall that Shettima played a lead role in the pre-presidential primaries campaign of Tinubu.

Shettima, the representative of Borno Central Senatorial District, was a former two-term Governor of Borno State.
