He had his one-year compulsory membership of the National Youths Service Corps, NYSC, at the defunct Nigerian Agricultural Cooperative Bank, Calabar, capital of Cross River State in South-South, Nigeria, from 1989 to 1990.

Early career:
In 1993, he moved into the banking sector and was employed by (now defunct) Commercial Bank of Africa Limited as head of accounts unit at the bank's office in Ikeja, Lagos State, Southwest, Nigeria.

In 2001, he moved to the Zenith Bank as head of its main branch in Maiduguri. At the Zenith Bank he rose to Senior Manager/Branch Head; Assistant General Manager (AGM)/Zonal Head (North-East), Deputy General Manager/Zonal Head (North-East) before he stepped out of the Zenith Bank as a General Manager in 2007 following his appointment as Commissioner for Finance in Borno State.

He then became a deputy manager, later manager, at the African International Bank Limited, Kaduna Branch (1997–2001), and was appointed Deputy Manager/Branch Head of the Zenith Bank's Maiduguri Office in 2001, becoming General Manager five years later. In mid-2007, Shettima was appointed Commissioner of the Borno State Ministry of Finance and Economic Development. Later he became Commissioner in the Ministries of Local Governments and Chieftaincy Affairs, Education, Agriculture and later Health under his predecessor as Borno Governor Ali Modu Sheriff.

From 2007 to 2011, he served as Commissioner in 5 Ministries. In the January 2011 ANPP primaries, Engineer Modu Fannami Gubio was selected as candidate for the governorship.

He has so far been driving key changes in the affairs of the forum with focus on promoting northern unity and reviving ailing industries belonging to northern States.

With the approval of the National Security Adviser and the Nigerian Army in 2013, his government formalized establishment of youth volunteers called the Civilian JTF.

However, amidst such fright, Governor Kashim Shettima who was out of the country for an official assignment, returned to Maiduguri in a show of courage and patriotism. On his return, the Governor mobilized residents towards rising up in defense of their ancestry.

Although Maiduguri didn't fall, the insurgents succeeded in occupying 20 out of the 27 local government areas of the State before the Nigerian Armed Forces liberated them between 2015 and 2016.

The Governor has been coordinating and leading the temporary accommodation, rehabilitation and resettlement of victims of the Boko Haram insurgents. With peace building, Governor Kashim Shettima has been championing Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement of victims. He has focused so much attention on expansion and remodeling of existing schools and the building of new boarding primary and junior secondary schools to cater for over 50, 000 unaccompanied orphans whose parents were killed by insurgents across the 27 local government areas of the State.

Nothing Good can come from the North

Isaiah - Chapter 43:5,6
Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;
I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth

Muslim-Muslim ticket is a constitutional fruad on the right of the Christian community and has been rejected already.
This is an own goal for Apc.

I can imagine the uproar from the north and muric if there was a christian/Christian ticket.

So...based on religion alone , A PC and Tinubu dropped the ball on this one.

Now that the south has been successful divided along religio-tribal boundaries. The west may favour Tinubu because he is "our brother" and the east will really around Obi. In addition, fanatical Muslims in the south will not mind the Muslim- Muslim tickets, but majority of christians will sentimentally cast their vote against APC.

While, many people may consider Tinubu's choice a misfire, I think otherwise. There are several reasons but three will suffice.

First, considering Buhari's religio-ethnic bias, he will must likely be in support of a Muslim-Muslim tickets, and with all the power under his control he may influence the dynamics in favour of Tinubu. Secondly, (I just got to know about this recently) there are more Muslim than christians in Nigeria (let's not talk about, how they tend to be more united in pursuit of an objective than the christians in Nigeria- as they say, "conspiracy binds them together"), if APC are able to play their religious card well, it may work out for their good. Lastly, with the votes in the christian populated south divided, the voting of the North may tilt the numbers in Tinubu's favor.

The other side to this is that, the north can decide to rally around their own, and with only a little contribution from the south, Atiku wins.

I am most awed by the optimism being displayed by the OBI-dient group. I can't imagine that anyone in Nigeria still believe the system will accommodate what is ideal. Let's join them in prayers.

As it appears, however it turns, it is a win-win for the North. As far as they are concern, southerns and Christians have ruled the country for 16 years (they consider Umaru Musa's tenure more or less as GEJ's first time in office) and it is time for them to have their hold on power.

The general call out is for all southerns and Christians in Nigeria to learn to stay untied, "every kingdom that is divided against itself cannot stand"

Happy Sunday!
