Who Is A True Christian Between Tinubu & Others Who Only Remember Their Faiths During Election?- Oshiomole Asks

Former National Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress, Adams Oshiomole is one of the many party Chieftains who believe the presidential candidate of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu made the right choice by picking another Muslim running mate, Kashim Shettima.

Since Tinubu settled for Shettima as his running mate, there has been endless debates and arguments in the public space. Many Nigerians believe that christians will be sidelined in the scheme of governance if the ticket is allowed to sail through.

The decision has been greeted with wild outrage and rejection by the Christian community who threatened to teach Tinubu and APC a drastic lesson at the poll in 2023 except they reconsider the choice of the former Borno State Governor.

Speaking on the development while featuring as a guest on the Wednesday edition of Arise News Morning, Adams Oshiomole, a former Chairman of the ruling APC, described the Muslim- Muslim ticket issue as immaterial and inconsequential.

The former Edo state governor described Tinubu as a detribalised and religiously free individual who believes in the unity of Nigeria without a religious sentiment.

According to the former labour leader, most of those who are breathing fire and brimstone over same faith ticket have never stepped into the church to pray for several months. They only remember they are christians when it is election time. 

Oshiomole explained how Tinubu who is a practising Muslim has been married to his wife, Senator Oluremi for about fourty years now and she has remained a Christian under Tinubu’s roof. As a matter of fact, she is Deaconess in RCCG.

Oshiomole also compared Tinubu with Babachir Lawal, the former SGF who is now championing the move against Tinubu for choosing Shettima. He said Lawal who claimed to be a Christian is still having a grass-cutting corruption allegation hanging around his neck in the public. Who then, is a better Christian between Tinubu and Lawal? Oshiomole asked rhetorically.

He noted that some people are only using the opportunity to fan the embers of religion confusion in the public and heat up the Political space. He advised Nigerians not to fall cheap for the conversation.
