The Vice Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Kashim Shettima, is currently meeting behind closed doors with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the State House, Abuja.
Our correspondent spotted the former Borno State Governor and his successor, Prof. Babagana Zulum, being ushered in to see the President at minutes before 04:00 pm on Wednesday.
The meeting comes hours after Shettima’s official unveiling as the running mate to the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Visiting the President at his Daura home on July 10, Tinubu had revealed that he chose Shettima because “he is competent, capable and reliable”.
At the time, he disclosed that he was yet to inform Shettima about his emergence as running mate.
The Muslim-Muslim ticket floated by the standard bearer has drawn harsh criticisms from various groups nationwide.
Shettima did not speak to journalists after the meeting. Instead, he was ushered out of the Villa premises through a different route.
