Former governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima on Monday described the All Progressives Congress Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the most qualified to replace President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

He spoke at the Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) Support Groups conference held at the main hall of the International Conference Centre, Abuja, on Monday.

Tinubu recently informed President Buhari of his ambition to be his successor in 2023.

Since Tinubu made his 2023 ambition known, many notable politicians in APC including some serving governors and lawmakers have continued to pledge their support for him.

At the Monday conference, Shettima, currently serving Borno Central senator, extolled the virtues of the former Lagos State Governor and called on Nigerians to rally around him to become their next president because he “is the most qualified candidate in the party to replace President Buhari in 2023.”

Also speaking at the event, a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, said that supporting Tinubu to become the next president could change the narrative within the challenges confronting the APC.

According to the Director-General of Bola Tinubu Support Groups Management Council, Abdulmumin Jibrin, the gathering was interested in the massive mobilisation of members to ensure the emergence of Tinubu as the APC’s presidential candidate.
