Senator Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s emergence as  APC Presidential candidate has been said to be “the first lap of our race to rekindle your faith in Nigeria and pride in its possibilities in a fast-changing world”.

Former Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima on Thursday, said the APC flag bearer emerged because the delegates elected to see through the mud thrown at him by those who could not match his political credentials.

In series of tweets, Shettima, said Tinubu’s victory in the APC Presidential primaries was a testament to widespread belief that Tinubu promised better days for Nigerians across all divides.

“This is a victory for all of us, for those who defied pedestrian propaganda & falsehoods to stand with the truth

“This is the first lap of our race to rekindle your faith in Nigeria and pride in its possibilities in a fast-changing world. Asiwaju emerged as Victor against all odds because you elected to see through the mud thrown at him by those who couldn’t match his political credentials.

“The endorsement of Asiwaju by six aspirants even before the election, which he won by a massive landslide, underscored his mass appeal among the esteemed contenders. Thus, we call on them to join us in the second lap of this race. We can’t afford to do so without a united front,” he said.

“I congratulate you for being a part of this history, and doing so without underlining any of the country’s fault-lines. This is the maturity and wisdom we intend to adopt in the coming days to bring you, patriots of a great nation, under one umbrella to market Asiwaju’s ideals,” he added.
