The All Progressives Congress (APC) Governors’ Forum has described Tinubu/ Shettima ticket as the best team from the party for the 2023 general election.
Rising from a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in his Daura, Katsina State, country home on Monday ,the governors described the duo of Ahmed Bola Tinubu and Ibrahim Kashim Shettima as the most formidable team that will ensure victory for APC .
Speaking through the forum’s Chairman and Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu.,they said “Kashim Shettima is one of Nigeria’s finest who will bring his wealth of experience to bear in the governance of the nation.
“Nigerians should be convinced that this is about the best team from the party for the 2023 general elections.
“We are quite pleased that this formidable team of Tinubu and Shettima will usher in a new Nigeria in 2023,”
“We are proud and congratulated the President over the development, especially with the manner the primaries held in the most transparent way leading to the emergence of Tinubu as the APC presidential flag bearer.
“This team will no doubt compliment the achievements and track records by Buhari in the past seven years, especially with the different policies put in place to bring back the country from the effects of COVID-19 and that of the Russia-Ukraine war.
“We have resolved to work hard for the victory of the APC in both the weekend Osun state governorship election and the 2023 general elections.”
Some of the other governors who attended the meeting included Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State, Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano, Hope Uzodima of Imo, Ahmed El-Rufai of Kaduna, and Simon Lanlong of Plateau State.
