Atiku Replies Shettima Over Comment On Retiring Him To Fombina, Buying Him Goats To Rear….CONTINUE READING
The People Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, asserted that the only lasting impact of Vice-President Kashim Shettima’s tenure was the transformation of Borno State from ‘the Home of Peace’ to a state of turmoil.
Atiku made this statement through his special assistant on Public Communications, Mr. Phrank Shaibu, in response to Shettima’s remarks about him following the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC).
After the tribunal’s ruling in favor of President Bola Tinubu, Shettima commented, “Atiku Abubakar is an elder statesman whom I hold in high regard. Anyone familiar with the social-cultural dynamics between the Fulanis and the Kanuris in the North understands that I have the freedom to express my opinions about him, and he will take it in stride.”
“We are not going to retire him to Dubai or Morocco. I will retire him to Fombina. I will buy him goats, broilers and layers so that he can spend his days rearing goats and broilers, but on a joking side,” the Vice President said.
In his response, Atiku, a former vice president, stated that Shettima’s performance as governor and chief security officer of Borno State was a dismal failure.
The statement pointed out the irony that Shettima, who held one of the poorest governance records in Nigerian history and was unable to uplift the people of Borno State from poverty, was contemplating investing in Atiku.
It added, “He (Shettima) loves to crack lackluster jokes at every given opportunity. Last year, he said Vice-President Osinbajo should have been an ice cream man instead of a politician. Later on, he said Nigeria needed a leader like Sani Abacha.
“As part of his circus act, he visited the annual general conference of the Nigerian Bar Association in an oversize suit, a pair of sneakers and a poorly knotted tie. Shettima needs to decide if he wants to be a statesman or Baba Sala of blessed memory .
His behaviour is certainly unbefitting for a man who currently holds the exalted office of Vice-President, even if temporarily.”
Shaibu noted that Shettima’s customary approach was to criticize others, given his lack of substantial accomplishments to highlight about himself or his superior, Bola Tinubu. Shaibu pointed out that Tinubu’s three months in office had only exacerbated poverty and inflation.
He reminded that Shettima initially served as commissioner for finance and subsequently assumed the role of governor of Borno State. Shaibu further mentioned that Shettima’s appointment into government, particularly coming from the banking sector, had raised high hopes and expectations.
“During his tenure as governor between 2011 and 2019, Borno State was taken over by terrorists completely. He ignored a security report about an impending attack on Chibok which ultimately led to the abduction of over 250 schoolgirls.
“Specifically, the head of WAEC’s National Office in Nigeria, Charles Eguridu, stated in 2014 that WAEC had informed Shettima about the danger of holding exams in Chibok and advised that the students be relocated to Maidguri which was relatively safer. Shettima refused to relocate the students and they were abducted, half of whom have not been seen again till today.
“Even though he left government four years ago, the millions of residents of Borno State have yet to recover from the mistake called Shettima. Rather than be penitent, he continues to move about like a clown, making unsolicited dry jokes about others.”
Shaibu advised the Vice-President to stick to praying to God for forgiveness for thwarting the destiny of the millions of people of Borno State.
“We advise Kashim Shettima to spend the remainder of his days praying to God everyday for forgiveness for destroying the lives of the millions of people of Borno State rather than making dry and insipid jokes at those who have actually bettered the lives of people.
“His lack of sophistication is eroding the elegance of the Office of the Vice-President. Men of honour have held that position in the past and Shettima should learn from the examples they led in public decency. In any case, he would do well by attending a finishing school on Atiku’s scholarship and learn how to behave like a polished statesman,” Shaibu said….CONTINUE READING
