Shettima: I was misquoted on Abacha’s ‘hospitality’ — Nigeria needs his ruthlessness
Kashim Shettima, the vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says he was misquoted on a recent comment he made which cited a reference to the late Sani Abacha.
Speaking on Thursday at the 96th-anniversary celebration of the Yoruba Tennis Club in Ikoyi, Lagos state, NAN had quoted him as saying Nigeria needs the “hospitality” of Abacha, former military ruler.
However, Shettima had said the country needs a president with “a dose of ruthlessness and taciturnity” of Abacha.
Clarifying the comparison of Abacha to Tinubu in a series of tweets on Friday, the former governor of Borno said he did not attribute hospitality to Abacha, adding that he meant Nigeria needs a president who is ruthless like the late military ruler, to address insecurity.
“The obsession with distorting one’s views to settle partisan scores brings to mind a certain WBC Commentary. ‘The trouble with deliberate bias,’ it says, ‘is that it cannot be erased by sound education’. The video of my speech in Lagos is out there for those sincerely curious,” he tweeted.
