Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has congratulated Vice President Kashim Shettima on his 57th birthday.
Describing him as a great and humble mentor whose type is very difficult to find, Zulum posted the birthday message at midnight on Friday via Facebook.
According to him, Shettima is a mentor who gives his mentees rare opportunities to define themselves.
Governor Zulum wrote, “I once read a quotation attributed to Steven Spielberg which said: “The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.
“Now, in his unique style of mentorship, His Excellency, Vice President Kashim Shettima, GCON, liberally gave us (his mentees) the rare opportunities of using what we have learnt from him to independently create our own identities of leadership for the benefit of our people in Borno State and beyond.
“Today and always, we celebrate a great and humble mentor whose type is very difficult to find.
“May Allah in His infinite Grace, grant the Vice President many more years with the best of health and strength, the best of faith, the best of wisdom, the best of inner peace and the best of prosperity in this world and in the hereafter. Aamin!
“Happy 57th Birthday to His Excellency, Senator Kashim Shettima, GCON, Vice President, Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
