Shettima Must Not Handle Nigeria’s Security

A chieftain of the opposition PDP, Anthony Ehilebo has urged Nigerians not to allow the APC vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima, to be in control of the nation’s security.

Ehilebo noted that Kashim Shettima cannot be trusted with Nigeria’s security considering how he handled the Chibok Girls issue in former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration The PDP chieftain noted further that Nigerians should be more interested in Shettima’s statement than his outfit

Shettima, one of the panellists at the just-concluded National Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association, had said he would oversee security while his principal, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will oversee the economy if elected.

The PDP chieftain stated thus: “How come you come to the NBA programme and announce on live TV that you will take care of security and your principal will handle the economy? “Section 130(2) of the 1999 Constitution specifies that it is the role of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. And if he decides to delegate the power, it must be to the armed forces. But here we have a VP candidate telling the world he wants to be in charge of our security.”
