Vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Kashim Shettima was in both Rano and Gaya – all in Kano State where he led a high powered team on a historic visit to the two emirates.
On the Shettima’s team were Kano State Deputy Governor, Dr Nasir Yusuf Gawuna and Deputy National Chairman of the APC (North) Senator Abubakar Kyari among others.
At the palace to receive the team in Rano, was the Emir, Alhaji Kabiru Muhammad Inuwa Autan Bawo III.
In Gaya also, the Emir, Alhaji Ibrahim Gaya was at hand to receive the delegation.
In both palaces, Senator Kashim Shettima paid tribute to the historical antecedents and relevance of the two emirates and linked the roles they have played in the evolution of a nation anchored on justice and fairness to why they are still relied upon to impact on the journey at hand.
He told the emirs and the very large gathering of people that Nigeria has a date with not just history, but with a golden opportunity to remake and reposition itself.
