According to thecityforbes, certain national stakeholders urged the former governor of Lagos State against choosing a Muslim running mate since a Muslim-Muslim ticket would exclude Christians.
Tinubu finally picks Muslim running mate. However, Tinubu stated that he has chosen Senator Shettima to be his running mate in a Sunday press conference in Katsina State.
Shettima served as the governor of Borno State for two terms and is the senator for Borno Central in the Red Chamber.
On Sunday, President Muhammadu Buhari and some members of the ruling party met in Daura, Katsina State.
