Reactions As Kashim Shettima Says Bola Tinubu Has Quality Of Sani Abacha In Him, Gives Reason
Statement credited to the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Kashim Shettima has attracted varying reactions from Nigerians online.
Kashim Shettima who is Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s running mate is quoted by the News Agency Of Nigeria (NAN) to have stated that his principal, Bola Tinubu has some qualities of Nigeria’s former military ruler, Sani Abacha.
While speaking at the 96th anniversary celebration of the Yoruba Tennis Club in Ikoyi, Lagos state, Shettima suggested that Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the most qualified and competent presidential candidate capable of redirecting Nigeria towards the path of progress.
“We are convinced that the general political situation in Nigeria needs the competencies of a detribalised and committed Nigerian like Tinubu to re-ignite the requisite values that can help us rededicate ourselves and all Nigerians to collectively tackle the challenges of national cohesion,” NAN quoted him to have said.
He further attributed Bola Tinubu as being hospitable as Sani Abacha, as being humble and generous as Yakubu Gowon, as being broad-minded as Olusegun Obasanjo, as being visionary and understanding of the nation’s need as Abdulsalami Abubakar.
“In 2023, we need a Nigerian leader that has the humility and generosity of spirit of the likes of general Yakubu Gowon. We need a leader that has abnegation and commitment of Muhammadu Buhari.
“We need a leader that has the work ethic and broadmindedness of an Olusegun Obasanjo. We need a leader that has the situational pragmatism and understanding of Nigeria’s security, the maradonic skill of Ibrahim Babangida.
“We need a leader with a vision and sense of responsibility and commitment, and somebody who understands the national title of the nation of an Abdulsalami Abubakar, and in our systemic circumstances, we need a leader with a dose of the hospitality of a Sani Abacha”.
