President Muhammadu Buhari says he is proud of the achievements of Kashim Shettima, former governor of Borno state.

Buhari said this in a congratulatory message on the senator’s 55th birthday.

According to a statement by Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, Buhari said Shettima fulfilled his campaign promises to the people of his state.

The president described the former governor “as one of Nigeria’s success stories since the beginning of the recent democratic journey”.


“I’m proud of Shettima for his achievements in office as one of APC’s best Governors in the country,” Buhari said.

The president said the former governor “was able to make his mark despite the challenges of insecurity,” adding that “crisis is the truest test of a man’s ability and Shettima proved his mettle”.

Buhari said Shettima now “serving his people in the senate, didn’t disappoint the electorate because he was able to fulfill his key campaign promises”.


“One of the great things for which Senator Shettima would be remembered is the fact that he handed over the State to a competent and a worthy successor in the person of Prof. Babagana Zulum,” the president said.

Shettima, a serving senator, was the governor of Borno state from 2011 to 2019.
