Maryam Shetty, one of the ministerial nominees from Kano, has caused a commotion on social media, with many All Progressives Congress (APC) from the state rejecting her nomination.
Ms Shettima, a political and social activist and a qualified physiotherapist, is known for her strong social media presence.
She started her early education in Kano and went to the School of Physiotherapy at Bayero University Kano, where she finished her BSc with distinction.
She obtained her Masters’s Degree from East London University, where she majored in Sports Physiotherapy.
But, APC chieftains in the northwest state say Shetty is more of a content creator and blogger and does not deserve to be a minister.
Idris Abdul Ahmed, a professional nurse, says President Bola Tinubu is a joker for nominating Shetty.
”Why is Maryam Shetty nominated? This man is really a joker. He was busy giving people posts who were absent in the whole APC ish. What are the two nominees from Kano known for?”
