The VP who said that the President is never working against the North, reminded that to show serious concerns with what is happening in the region, Tinubu appointed the two Ministers of Defence from the North, Chief of Defence Staff from the North, Chairman Police Service Commission is from the North so anybody who begins to lay out lies that the President is against the North, tell him he is lying.


He said, “At an appropriate time we will lay out facts that the President is not against the North as being championed by some disgruntled elements, who always want to cause disaffection between government and the citizens.”



In the same vein, the Vice President explained that, Tinubu has good intentions for the Nation, urging Nigerians to rally round him because for him to be able to achieve the desired goals of making the country great.


“This is not a game of apportioning blame but a game of making Nigeria work, and if Nigeria works, Africa works. We have moved beyond Politics, we are now in the act of governance, we must be seen doing what will help us all.”

Speaking on political party differences and how Kano State Government stood by him as he lost his Mother-in-law, Shettima hinted that the actions of the government showed that what binds us together is much greater than what divides us.”

He noted that, “PDP, NNPP, APC we are all one family, and Nigeria is greater than all of us, Political Party affiliation should not be a yardstick to show disaffection and create means of destruction for the wellbeing of the people.


“I remember, many of those who are in NNPP are founding members of APC and so also PDP, this clearly tells you that we are one big family who only believes in one party or the other, so we must work together to make Nigeria great, and together we will make it.”


Meanwhile, Tinubu on Monday lamented that the insecurity in the North-West region was affecting other parts of the country.


Also on Monday, a former Senator who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th National Assembly, Shehu Sani, said the recent visits by some prominent northern politicians to ex-President Muhammadu Buhari in Daura, Katsina State, were all plots to unseat Tinubu in 2027.
