Vice-President Shettima Attributes Tinubu’s Presidency to Divine Ordination.
Vice-President Kashim Shettima has expressed his belief that God ordained Bola Tinubu’s emergence as President of Nigeria. While acknowledging that he and his principal occupy two of the most powerful positions in the country, Shettima humbly stated that there are individuals with superior pedigree to theirs.
“We do not occupy our positions because of our physical prowess and certainly not because of our pedigree; there are people of superior pedigree than us,” remarked Mr. Shettima. It is a gift from God and a call to serve humanity for a very short span of time.
The vice-president emphasized Mr. Tinubu’s dedication to improving the livelihood of Nigerians and the fortunes of the country.
“I always believe that power is a humbling experience. We spend more of our lives outside power than in power, and, most importantly, I see it as a gift from God,” Mr. Shettima added. Asiwaju and I are occupying the prime positions in this country, not because of our intellectual acumen or political sagacity but purely by the grace of God.
Mr. Shettima made these statements while hosting the University of Ibadan Postgraduate School alumni, as reported by his media spokesperson, Stanley Nkwocha. The delegation also included members of the 1989/1990 set of the National Youth Service Corps with whom he served in Calabar.
And the impact we make in the lives of our people will determine our positions here and in the hereafter. So, to me, it is a humbling experience; it is an opportunity to add value to a great nation like ours,” said the vice-president. More so, Nigeria’s anticipated demographic bulge suggests we improve the quality of governance in the bid to mitigate any looming demographic disaster.
