Tinubu is not discriminating against the north – Shettima

Vice-President Kashim Shettima has asserted that President Bola Tinubu is not acting against the interests of Northern Nigeria.

Speaking on Wednesday, June 26, in Kano during a condolence visit from a Federal Government delegation led by the Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila, following the death of his mother-in-law, Hajiya Maryam Abubakar, Shettima praised Tinubu’s positive actions toward the region.

He highlighted the appointment of key figures from the North, including the two Ministers of Defence, the Chief of Defence Staff, and the Chairman of the Police Service Commission, as evidence of the president’s dedication to the region’s development.

Shettima urged Nigerians to support Tinubu’s initiatives to elevate the country, emphasizing that effective governance transcends political party lines. He stressed that national unity and progress should take precedence over party differences.

Citing the support he received from the Kano State Government, led by Governor Abba Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), during his bereavement, Shettima noted that the country has moved beyond politics to focus on governance.

He called for collective efforts to achieve national greatness, emphasizing that political party affiliations should not serve as a basis for division and conflict. The vice-president appealed for unity and cooperation among all political parties, reiterating that ensuring Nigeria’s greatness is a shared responsibility.
