An aide to Vice President Kashim Shettima’s wife, Hajia Nana, has addressed the speculations surrounding the appointment of an unmarried female police aide-de-camp (ADC) to serve under Mrs. Shettima’s security details.
Dismissing Rumors of Rejection Based on Beauty or Marital Status
Reports circulating on social media had suggested that the vice president’s wife rejected the orderly, citing her beauty and single status.
However, Ameen Amshi, in a statement shared on Twitter, debunked these rumors, clarifying the real reason behind the selection.
Prioritizing Experience and Familiarity
According to the statement, Mrs. Shettima chose to retain the ADC who had previously served her while her husband was the governor of Borno State.
The decision was not influenced by the officer’s physical appearance or marital status but rather by familiarity and trust.
Emphasizing Standard Procedures and Security Considerations
The aide emphasized that adherence to standard procedures is crucial to prevent security lapses.
The assignment of security details or aides to VIPs involves a thorough process that includes assessing the competence and service records of multiple candidates.
The most suitable candidate is then presented to the VVIP/VIP for approval before being officially assigned.
A History of Long-Term Relationships with Staff
The Shettima family is known for maintaining long-term relationships with their staff and workers.
This extends to retaining security details who served the Vice President when he was the Governor.
Given this track record, it is unlikely that Mrs. Shettima would deviate from this practice.
She has consistently prioritized following due process in her official dealings, including the assignment of security personnel to VIPs and VVIPs.
Conclusion: Setting the Record Straight on the Vice President’s Wife’s Choice
The aide’s statement serves to correct the inaccurate news of an alleged rejection by HE Nana Shettima during her inauguration.
It emphasizes that the selection process for security personnel follows specific procedures and underscores Mrs. Shettima’s commitment to following due process in her official capacity.
