Shettima said Nigeria is currently in dire need of a leader with a noble character and Tinubu who has served as a former governor of Lagos state fits that description.

“His story has been told over and again. Martin Luther said the true measure of a man is when he stands in discomfort. Many can tell of how Tinubu served his country even in exile.
We have a leader in Tinubu, one who is known for his nobility, he is proven. He is not one tied to tribal sentiments, he has a propensity for sacrificing his comfort to protect our democracy. He is a true patriot.”
