A former spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party, Sani Umar, has said that Vice President Kashim Shettima is gradually becoming the chief comedian of Aso Rock.
Umar made this comment in reaction to Shettima’s statement, saying that he would retire the 2023 presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, to his hometown and buy livestock for him to rear.
Following the victory of President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, Shettima durinh an interview said, “We are not going to retire Atiku to Dubai or Morocco. I’d retire him to Kombina. I’d buy him goats, broilers, and layers so that he can spend his days rearing cows and broilers.”
Daily Independent reported that the PDP chieftain insisted that the VP was gradually turning himself into a chief jester.
He noted how Shettima once referred to his predecessor, Yemi Osinbajo as an ice cream seller.
He said, “I have discovered that Shettima has a very crude sense of humour in a way. Perhaps, he was trying to bring his own type of dry jokes to bear in the polity but in making that kind of dry utterances he has to be careful. He has initially called the former Vice President an ice cream seller. I think he is gradually becoming the chief comedian of Aso Rock.“
