While almost all Nigeria’s past heads of state have been accused of corruption, Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima has come to President Muhammadu Buhari’s defense in new interview with Channels TV saying that the president is a man of integrity and that no one can accuse him of corruption.
“No matter what you will accuse Buhari of, nobody can accuse Buhari of corruption. He is stabilizing factor in this country. He is a man of impeccable credentials.” he said
Talking about Buhari’s re-run for office come 2019, Governor Shettima noted that President Buhari has his health challenge to take care of and that he is no longer a young man. He, however, stated that the decision to run or not lies solely on President Buhari
“That decision should be made by the President. Nobody should ask him not to contest. In the same vein, nobody should push him to contest. He has his own health to take care of, he’s not a young man by any standard. The Nation truly needs the wisdom, the integrity, the commitment of the likes of Buhari but believe me, whatever decision he takes, we are solidly behind him” he said
