How Shema almost became Jonathan’s VP after Late ‘Yar’adua’s death

More insider stories began to emerged as to how Nigeria’s former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan almost picked Katsina State’s immediate past Governor, Ibrahim Shema to be his Vice President after Late President Ummaru Musa ‘Yar’adua’s death in 2010.

The latest among the revelations is the one made by the publisher of Leadership newspaper, Mr. Sam Nda Isaiah in his recent tribute to Mamman Daura.

According to Mr Nda, during the time, the then President Jonathan invited General (Rt) TY Danjuma to help him choose a vice president from among the then serving governors.

“After interviewing a few of the governors, he gave Jonathan three names: Babangida Aliyu of Niger State, Namadi Sambo of Kaduna State and Ibrahim Shema of Katsina State in that order.

“Babangida Aliyu was disqualified on grounds of zoning, as Senate President David Mark and himself were from the north-central zone.

“That was how Namadi Sambo, who was at that time mobilizing support for his predecessor Ahmed Makarfi to get the job, received a call from TY to see him. The rest, as they say, is now history”, Mr. Nda Isaiah wrote.
