Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, arrived in Daura, Katsina State on Sunday afternoon to pay Sallah homage to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Sunday Dare, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development and a long-time ally of the APC standard-bearer, is prominent in his entourage. Dare was Tinubu’s Chief of Staff for eight years before becoming a National Commissioner at the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC).
Information filtering out of Daura indicates that Tinubu used the occasion to brief President Buhari on his choice of Sen. Kashim Shettima as running mate. Shettima, a two-term Governor of Borno State, played a pivotal role in the intra-party campaigns leading to the primaries, becoming its arrowhead in the North.
