ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU AND HIS CHOICE OF SENATOR KASHIM SHETTIMA AS RUNNING MATE
Gentlemen of the Press, I’m comrade Bature Johnson, who doubles as the founder and president of [IAADHR] herein Nigeria,
That we have observed the several reactions to the choice made by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate and wish to state that;
1. The deft political mind Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has displayed supports our believe that truly he is a master strategist.
Senator Kashim Shettima we submit is agile, non tribalistic, not a religious bigot, diligent, hard working and as former Governor of Borno State ran an inclusive government and at the end of his tenure brought in Professor, Zullum who is arguably one of the best performing governor presently in Nigeria despite the security challenges he faces.
2. It is a fact that with the background of these two enigmatic personalities as President and Vice President, if elected, their administration will bring a turnaround in our economy, eradicate poverty, reduce unemployment, ensure adequate security of lives and properties of Nigerians and find lasting solution to insurgency, kidnapping and Boko Haram imbroglio ravaging us at the moment.
3. The choice of Senator Kashim Shettima will ensure that the pitfalls that affected President Muhamnadu Buhari's administration will be avoided given his track record and antecedents. We make bold to say that it is the prayers of every citizens that is needed for success so that the myriads of problems facing us as a country will become a things of the past as our country will be in safe hands.
5. A succinct appraisal of Nigeria's politics and evolution concerning the issue of Muslim/Muslim ticket, Christian/Muslim ticket depict that political performance is not about the religious positions of the candidates that guarantees performance in office. In fact the push for a seemingly balance of religion has not provided the needed push for good governance, reduction of poverty, eradication of insurgency and insecurity as represented by the Boko Haram insurgency and recently ISWAP.
What Nigeria deserves is competent hands to steer the ship away from incessant and seemingly un-resolvable problems ravaging us. A team of tested and trusted candidates that have the support of a greater number of our people as having the will to turn around our fortunes is what we need and Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima who both represent our hope for the future we all dream of meets the requirements and we endorse them accordingly.
