Tinubu’s Presidency Not By Chance, A Blessing For Nigeria – Shettima

Meanwhile, Shettima has said the emergence of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as President is not by chance but a divine blessing for the country.

Shettima stated this on Friday when he hosted a delegation of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC) on a courtesy visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The vice president described Tinubu as a man whose trajectory “is characterised by making sacrifices for the good of the nation.

Shettima emphasised the need for leaders to invest in building bridges, stressing that Tinubu’s contributions in providing an alternative platform for the Nigerian political system could not be underrated.

Shettima therefore urged Nigerians to be patient with President Tinubu as he piloted the affairs of the country to success.

The former Governor of Borno State also urged the newly appointed Board of NCPC to demonstrate unwavering devotion to duty.
