The All Progressives Congress, APC, vice presidential candidate, Sen. Kashim Shettima has said that North-east should not vote for the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, because he (Atiku) neglected the region during his eight tenure as vice president.
Shettima, who spoke at the Yobe South APC rally held in Potiskum on Tuesday, said Atiku deserves no vote from the Northeast.

According to Shettima, most of Atiku’s closest associates like Fariya and Baba Wuro Barambu all died without meaningful assistance from Atiku.
“Abdullahi Nyako of Adamawa, died in a rented house; Fariya died in anger. Atiku has no close associate in Gombe State than Baba Wuro Barambu but he died indebted, what sort of brotherhood or associate is this,” Shettima queried.
The APC vice presidential candidate also claimed that even the road to Atiku’s ancestral home, Ganye, was constructed by the APC-led government under President Muhammadu Buhari.
He called on the people of Yobe State to vote for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the APC instead of wasting their votes on someone who does not care about them and their entire region.
