Vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Kashim Shettima has promised that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will lead Nigerians with the leadership style of late military head of state, General Sani Abacha.
According to Shettima, Nigerians would enjoy same level of hospitality they enjoyed under the military dictator.
The former Borno governor gave the assurance while Speaking at the 96th anniversary of the Yoruba Tennis Club in Ikoyi, on Thursday.
Shettima said Nigeria needs a leader with a vision and sense of responsibility and commitment is what is needed to move forward.
“We need a leader with a vision and sense of responsibility and commitment, and somebody who understands the national title of the nation of an Abdulsalami Abubakar, and in our systemic circumstances, we need a leader with a dose of the hospitality of a Sani Abacha.
“We need a leader with the intellectual acumen, with the action to catapult this nation to a higher pedestrian. We need a leader who is not bound by regional or religious sentiment.
“We need a leader that has established such records of excellence and commitment to good governance. There is no one, with all due respect, that fits this better than Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
Sani Abacha ruled as military head of state of Nigeria from 1993 until his death in 1998.
He seized power on 17 November 1993 in what was the last successful of coups under the military regime.
Abacha’s rule was been embroiled with little respect for human rights and a heavy level of corruption as evidenced in the series of loots returned to the country by foreign nations.
