Why Former Governor of Anambra, Chukwuemeka Ezeife Visited Kashim Shettima

Former Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuemeka Ezeife’s  picture with the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Kashim Shettima has attracted varying reactions online.

This is because, the former governor of Anambra State has been a strong advocate for Igbo presidency; hence, many believe that his meeting with Kashim Shettima was at the expense of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi who is also a former governor of Anambra State.

However, the official statement released claims that Chukwuemeka Ezeife visit to Kashim Shettima was a mere courtesy one.

“Fmr Governor of Anambra State, H.E Chukwuemeka Ezeife paid a courtesy visit to the APC Vice-Presidential Candidate, Sen @KashimSM in Abuja”, the statement reads.

However, some Nigerians have suggested online that the visit might be more than courtesy one but a means to persuade chief Eziefi to work against the presidential ambition of Peter Obi whose acceptance across the religious and ethnic divides of the country has been noticeably tremendous.

Shettima is alleged to be desperately looking for means to brighten his Public image in the southeastern part of the country where he thinks he is most unpopular.
