Borno APC hails ap­point­ment of She­huri as min­is­ter

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Hamza Idris

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.
