On Thursday, Kashim Shettima, the vice president-elect, paid a visit to General Ibrahim Babangida, a former military leader, and General Abdulsalami Abubakar, a former head of state.
During Ramadan, Shettima, who was in Minna, the capital of the Niger State, paid separate homage to the two past presidents of Nigeria.
According to sources close to the two leaders, Shettima’s travels were not unrelated to the upcoming All Progressives Congress (APC) government, which would be headed by President-elect Bola Tinubu.
According to the sources, Tinubu is looking for the two wise men’s assistance.
Also, it was learned that the Vice President-Elect called the two former military commanders to confer about a political scheme to appoint an interim administration, which was confirmed by the Department of State Services (DSS) on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress has raised concern over the protest at the park in front of the White House against the victory of President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
A statement issued on Thursday by Prof. Tai Balofi, Chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC United States, pointed fingers of scorn at the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, as the protest’s mastermind.
Balofin, who vowed to mobilise pro-Tinubu supporters to counter the protesters, maintained that the majority of Nigerian voters gave Tinubu ” their mandate, and no propaganda, manipulation or tissue of lies can stop his inauguration.”
