Borno Central senator, Kashim Shettima and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo should be selling pop corn and ice cream on the streets and not competing with Bola Tinubu, frontline presidential aspirant, for the top office, Kashim Shettima, former Borno governor has said.

Mr Shettima representing Borno Central at the Senate stated this while featuring on Channels TV’s Politics Today monitored by TODAY POLITICS Friday evening.

“Osinbajo is a good man,” the lawmaker, on the campaign train of the former Lagos governor, acknowledged. “He is a nice man but nice men don’t make good leaders. Nice men should be selling popcorn, and ice cream.”

The Borno-Central representative, who said it was an insult to mention his presidential candidate among the best, went further to belittle the number two citizen when asked if Mr Tinubu has stepped down for Mr Osinbajo.

“How do you expect an elephant to step down for lilliputians?” he queried while rejecting the notion that a consensus candidate will emerge from the All Progressive Congress (APC).

He warned of consequences if his candidate who accused Buhari of betraying him is barred from testing his popularity at the party’s convention next week where its flag bearer will emerge.
