APC 2023 Vice Presidential Candidate, Kashim Shettima, Under Attack For Already Violating The 1999 Constitution, By Announcing That He Will Be Playing The Role Of ‘Commander-In-Chief Of The Armed Forces’ In Charge Of Security, While Bola Tinubu Will Be In Charge Of The Economy

The 2023 Vice Presidential Candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Kashim Shettima, has come under attack for announcing last week, that he would be in charge of the security of the country, should his party win the 2023 Presidential election, Page 36 learnt.

Reacting however, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Head of Digital, Anthony Ehilebo, said that Shettima cannot be in charge of security in Nigeria, because of his antecedents, adding that the former Borno State Governor was in charge when the issue of the Chibok girls happened in his State, under his watch, in 2014.

Ehilebo spoke when he appeared on Channels Television’s Politics Today, on Sunday.

Recall, that Shettima had said at the just-concluded National Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, that he would oversee security, while his principal, Bola Tinubu, would oversee the economy, if elected as Nigeria’s next President and Vice President in 2023.

According to Ehilebo: “How can 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.

“This is the same man in charge when the issue of Chibok girls happened. Shettima ignored the directive to move the Students and the terrorists took advantage.

“It is also a fact that a suspected terrorist, Kabiru Sokoto, was arrested in the Governor’s Lodge, by the DSS. Today, we have not been able to dissociate him from all that. Unfortunately, Nigerians are more interested in his sneakers and what he wore to the NBA, than his statement.”
