He said with his background as a former lecturer, banker, agricultural economist, former Governor, and parliamentarian with visionary and patriotic ideologies, Sen. Shettima will be a round peg in a round hole’ as vice president.

He reassured of his commitment and support of the APC in Gombe State to the Tinubu/ Shettima ticket as well as a victory for the party in 2023 at all levels.
