In defense of President Tinubu’s dedication to the growth of the northern region, the vice president highlighted key appointments made by the president.

This includes the appointment of two defense ministers, the defense chief, and the chairman of the Police Service Commission, all hailing from the North. Shettima emphasized that these appointments serve as evidence of the president’s unwavering commitment to the region.

Furthermore, Shettima expressed his intention to present factual evidence at an appropriate time to counter the claims propagated by certain disgruntled individuals who seek to create discord between the government and the citizens.

He called on Nigerians to support Tinubu’s endeavors to foster greatness in Nigeria, emphasizing that governance should transcend political party affiliations.

The vice president stressed the importance of unity and progress for the country, highlighting that national interests should take precedence over party differences.

He emphasized that Nigeria has moved beyond mere politics and is now focused on governance, urging collective efforts towards achieving greatness.

Recent criticisms directed at Tinubu by political commentators in northern Nigeria for allegedly neglecting the region have prompted Vice President Shettima to step forward and defend the president’s record.
