Tinubu’s admin ‘ll tackle poverty in Nigeria – Shettima

Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), will tackle poverty in Nigeria if elected as president in 2023, Kashim Shettima, the vice presidential candidate of the party, has said.

Shettima spoke on behalf of Tinubu at the launch of Tinubu/Shettima Crowdfunding Application in Lagos. The party is targeting N5 billion from donations for its presidential campaign.

Shettima said with the app, everybody will be able to contribute to the campaign fund.

He praised Tinubu’s leadership quality, saying leadership has to do with track record, antecedent and achievements and not issue cyber bullying.

He expressed confidence that with the performance of Tinubu as ex-Lagos State governor and himself as ex- Borno State governor, they would replicate the giant strides recorded in their states for Nigeria if elected.

“Tinubu pairing with my humble self, places us as the best bet. Jagaban is the architect of modern Lagos. Leadership goes beyond insults and cyber bullying. Leadership requires reaching out, leadership is harnessing our diversity,” Shettima stated.

“We have no business of being poor. I find it amusing when people say we should reduce poverty, we have to eradicate poverty.”
