Borno APC hails appointment of Shehuri as minister
The Borno State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has endorsed the nomination of Alhaji Baba Shehuri as minister, saying President Muhammadu Buhari has made a right choice.
Speaking in Abuja yesterday, the state Organizing Secretary of the party, Mohammed Auwal Hamza described Shehuri as a grassroots politician who believes in the philosophy and political ideology of President Buhari.
“The announcement of Baba Shehuri was a glad tiding for us in Borno State and it did not come as a surprise. This is because the nominee has been with President Buhari right from day one, and he has never left Maiduguri even in times of difficulties.
“He was at various times a councillor, local government chairman, member of the House of Assembly, member House of Representatives and also the gubernatorial candidate of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change (CPC),” he said.
