Muslim-Muslim Ticket: Tinubu Meets Northern Bishops (Photos)

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for president, met with the Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria on Thursday.

The meeting was place in Abuja, and Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, claimed it was not a threat to the Christian community that he chose Kashim Shettima, a former governor of Borno State, as his running partner.

The APC presidential candidate claims that Shettima was chosen due to his qualifications rather than his beliefs.

He claimed that he has always been a friend of the Christian community and that his record, plans, and agenda for improving Nigeria should be taken into consideration.

Tinubu said: “How will Nigeria develop? How do we banish hunger? How do we improve the insecurity and how do we eliminate killing one another, and shedding of blood of innocent citizens, that is what we must take to the office and not our religion.

“My intention is clear, not religiosity. My intention is to develop this country, to bring prosperity to our country and I have better qualification, better track records, better exposure, better vision than any of my mates.

“When the shortlisted names came, I looked at the characters on the list, their background and everything and here is somebody (Kassim Shetimma) who is so brilliant, so committed, who, during the crisis in Borno protected Christians.”

Speaking at the meeting, the Chairman of Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria, Archbishop John Praise, said they were not committed to endorsing Bola Tinubu to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
