In the last few months, the All Progressives Congress vice-presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima, has uttered some savage statements against Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Abubakar Atiku and Peter Obi of Labour Party.
In this reports, Legit.ng aggregate some of the utterances by Bola Tinubu’s running mate.
Shettima on Osinbajo
Shettima had in a TV programme said:
“Nobody has ever doubted the competence of Professor Osinbajo, but we believe that in terms of intellectual capacity, and someone who is capable of winning the election, is Bola Tinubu.
“We need someone who can match and even overshadow the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar. Osinbajo is a good and nice man but nice men do not make good leaders, nice men should be selling ice cream.”
Shettima on Atiku
“I respect Atiku Abubakar but leadership goes beyond ‘unstatesman-like’ ranting. Someone who cannot unite his own party, I wonder how he is going to unite this nation. The world is talking of artificial intelligence, of big data, of nanotechnology. The training that the elder statesman got from Kano School of Hygiene is that of a wole wole.
“And believe me, the ability to sell bottle water does not make one an expert on the economy. Atiku Abubakar is not Abraham Lincoln, he is more of a Raila Odinga. Next year, we are going to permanently retire the political tourist back to Dubai.”
Shettima on Peter Obi
“What are the options available? Our political space is filled with a lot of very careful snails… We have to provoke conversation without descending so low to engage in malicious concoction or dubious aspersions on personalities. So what are the options available?
“Peter Gringori Obi is my friend but Gringori has absolutely nothing to offer apart from dubious statistics. So the choice before us, there is a difference between daylight and darkness.”
