The Director-General of Voice of Nigeria(VON), Osita Okechukwu has described the Tinubu/Shettima ticket as good.
Osita who is an All Progressives Congress political appointee described Tinubu and Kashim Shettima as ‘moderate’ Muslims.
Former Lagos State Governor, Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu went against the wishes of many Nigerians to pick former Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima as his running mate, both of whom are Muslims in a country where religion plays a major role in politics.
The statement reads partly: “On the choice of Distinguished Sen. Kashim Shettima as Vice Presidential Candidate, I think it is an excellent joint ticket.
“An excellent joint ticket because Shettima is a transparent man of action and capable as Asiwaju pointed out.
“On the issue of Muslim-Muslim ticket, as a Christian one would have preferred Muslim-Christian ticket; however, there was the likely input of Northern Governors who are staunch supporters of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“The good news is that both are moderate Muslims, not ultra Muslims.”
