Alhaji Kashim Shetimma, former governor of Borno State and vice presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on Wednesday, described his joint ticket with the party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 election, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as a Nigerian project.

Shetimma, who spoke at his unveiling ceremony in Abuja, said his emergence as the vice presidential candidate on a Muslim-Muslim ticket was not an imposition on the masses.

“My ticket is not an imposition but a Nigerian project. Nigerians need to lay to rest issues of religion, region and ethnicity”, he emphasized.

This is just as he paid a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Villa after being unveiled by the national chairman of APC, Alhaji Abdullahi Adamu, who said the party’s winning strategy in the forthcoming presidential election must be anchored on unity of purpose.
