Governors on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday visited President Muhammadu Buhari at his residence in Daura, Katsina.
They immediately went into a closed-door meeting to discuss the emergence of Senator Kashim Shettima as the running mate of the party’s Presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Bellnews Online earlier reported that the Governors were not so happy about the pattern with which Shettima was announced as running mate.
However, after the meeting with the President, the Governors said they were pleased with Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s choice of Kassim Shettima as his running mate in the 2023 presidential election.
The Governors described Shettima as one of Nigeria’s finest.
The Governors who made the trip include Aminu Masari of Katsina, Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano, Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna, Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi, Abubakar Bello of Niger, Hope Uzodimma of Imo, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti, Simon Lalong of Plateau and Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa.
Speaking after the meeting, Bagudu said a Tinubu-Shettima presidency will complement all the achievements of the last seven years under president Muhammadu Buhari.
