President Muhammadu Buhari has described former Governor of Borno, Kashim Shettima, as one of Nigeria’s success stories since the beginning of the recent democratic journey.
The president stated this in a congratulatory message released by his spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu in Abuja to mark Shettima’s 55th birthday, on Thursday.
President Buhari said he is proud of Shettima for his achievements in office as one of APC’s best Governors in the country.
He added that Former Governor Shettima was able to make his mark in spite of the challenges of insecurity.
According to him, crisis is the truest test of a man’s ability and Shettima proved his courage.
He noted that, one of the great things for which Shettima will be remembered is the fact that he handed over the State to a competent and a worthy successor in the person of Prof. Babagana Zulum.
