‘The best is yet to come,’ Maryam Shetty speaks on withdrawal of ministerial nomination

Maryam Shettima, an All Progressives Congress (APC) member, remains optimistic despite President Bola Tinubu withdrawing her ministerial nomination, stating that the best is yet to come.

Shetty disclosed this in a statement posted on her verified Facebook page on Saturday.

This is coming about 24 hours after the dramatic twist of events.

Recall that just before her screening before the red chamber on Friday, the President removed Shetty’s name and replaced her with two others — Festus Keyamo and Mariya Mahmoud.

She said “sheer joy and pride” at my nomination as it was “a validation of my capabilities, a nod to my vision, and a sign that our great nation was ready to embrace a future where young women like me, even from the most traditional parts of Nigeria, can hold positions of influence and power.

“Yet, life, with its characteristic unpredictability, led to the withdrawal of my nomination. To some, this could seem like a setback, but my faith as a devout Muslim guided my understanding. I saw it as the divine will of Allah, who I believe grants power as He wishes, when He wishes. His plans are always superior to ours.

“Even with this unexpected twist, my gratitude to President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for considering me for such an esteemed position remains undiminished. The journey doesn’t end here; I believe this is a mere stepping stone, the best is yet to come. My resolve to serve my beloved country, Nigeria, in any capacity I can, is stronger than ever.

“I would like to assure my incredible supporters that this is not an end, it is the dawn of a new era I urge all of us to continue praying for our nation and to stand behind our President as he strives to better Nigeria.

“My nomination may have been withdrawn, but my hope is unwavering. As I have often stated, “Hope is not lost; maybe I will come back again.”
