Shettima is Visionary and Detribalised; A Major Plus For APC Presidential Ticket, says Omo-Agege ~Ajasa-Info


The Deputy Senate President and Delta APC Governorship candidate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has felicitated with Senator Kashim Shettima on his emergence as Vice Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 General Elections.

In a congratulatory message personally signed by him, Senator Omo-Agege described the APC Vice Presidential candidate as detribalized and visionary, and a major plus for the APC Presidential ticket.

He recalled how the former Borno State Governor and lawmaker representing Borno Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, played a key role in his own emergence as Deputy Senate President in 2019.

“He was and continues to be a major player, not only in the National Assembly but in our nation at large. He is a large hearted and forward looking leader, inclusive in perspective and shorn of all bigotry. Our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, couldn’t have made a better choice.

It is no surprise, Omo-Agege added, “that the Borno State Chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has immediately risen support of Shettima’s selection as Tinubu’s running mate.”

He noted that the APC Vice Presidential candidate is hospitable to other faiths and ethnic groups, and that this was evident during his tenure as Governor of Borno State from 2011 to 2019.

“As governor of a dominantly Kanuri state, he had amongst his closest aides, an Ibo Christian from Anambra State, an Urhobo Christian from Delta Central Senatorial District, a Christian from Edo State, a Yoruba Christian from the Southwest, a Fulani man from Gombe and a Hausa man from Zamfara,” he said.

He said that the Vice Presidential candidate is a forthright, vocal and outspoken politician who speaks truth to power.

“Senator Shettima is a dogged professional, a rare breed banker, an agricultural economist and politician who is an inspiration to a new generation of leaders.

“His rich profile in Executive and Legislative business, public and corporate governance will always be useful in steering the ship of state. I call on Nigerians to rally round the Tinubu/Shettima ticket and vote massively for APC in all positions at the 2023 General Elections. “

Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has congratulated Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the newly-elected presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Omo-Agege, the standard bearer of APC in the 2023 governorship election in Delta State, expressed optimism that Tinibu would emerge victorious in next year’s presidential election.

He particularly lauded President Muhammadu Buhari and the governing APC for giving all aspirants a level-playing field.

He commended the 2022 APC Special Convention Committee for successfully conducting the primary, even as he showered glowing tributes on APC Northern Governors for setting the pace by zoning the Presidency to the South.

While calling on Tinubu to be magnanimous in victory, Omo-Agege stressed the need for all presidential aspirants to join hands with the APC Presidential candidate and the party in ensuring victory.

“Not everyone gave APC a chance to conduct a free, fair, credible presidential primary. With the undercurrents in the buildup, some had predicted that our great party would go into extinction after this Convention.

“But with the transparent process that saw the emergence of Asiwaju Tinubu as our party standard bearer, I am confident more than ever before that this is the beginning of even greater tidings for our party.

“We proved our critics wrong. We have shown that with unity of purpose, the sky is our starting point,” he said.

The Deputy Senate President called on Nigerians to support Tinubu and other APC candidates at all levels in the forthcoming polls.
