There has been several reactions to the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC following Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s choice of another muslim as his presidential running Mate.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the APC chose Sen. Kashim Shettima, former governor of Borno State as his running mate in the 2023 general elections.
Former National Chairman of the APC, and governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole has reacted to his party’s controversial same fate ticket.
Oshiomhole said that some Nigerians that against against his party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket are people who are standing trial for corruption.
Oshiomhole referred to dissenting Nigerians as distractors when he came on Arise TV today, “Christians by mouth and devils by heart.” He accused them of trying to incite religious violence.
In his words: “This country has survived religious wars. Even people who are on record of being prosecuted for misappropriating money that a Muslim governor appropriated in favour of Christian children who were displaced. They are now the new voice of Christianity.
So we must distinguish between Christian by mouth and devil by heart who wants to see Nigeria engulfed in a war that nobody can win. Asiwaju Tinubu has a Christian wife of about 40 years and is happily married. Is that not an example of what the nation should be?”, he added.
