Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi on Friday paid a congratulatory visit to the Vice-President-elect, Kashim Shettima, at his residence in the Asokoro area of Abuja.
Mr Bello, in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Onogwu Muhammed, in Lokoja, described Mr Shettima as “a man of charisma” and “astute leader” capable of leading the nation to greater heights.
Mr Bello, who is the National Youth Coordinator of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, said that the visit was solely to congratulate Mr Shettima on the party’s victory in the just concluded presidential election.
“It’s Bello’s belief that Shettima will provide the needed support for our President-elect Bola Tinubu to help in transforming nigeria’s political and socio-economic spectrum.
“The governor is also optimistic that Tinubu/Shettima will confront, with renewed vigour, the most urgent problems facing the country in formulating policies that will improve security and the living standard of all Nigerians,” he said
Mr Muhammed said that before moving into a closed-door session, Governor Bello prayed that the Almighty guide and protect the vice-president and president-elect in the task ahead.
