2023: Pastor says rumours of Muslim-Muslim ticket targeted at denting Tinubu
Meanwhile, the leader of Young Professionals of Nigeria, Pastor John Desmond had warned those peddling rumours of a Muslim-Muslim in the APC to quit henceforth.
He said the speculation is targeted at denting the image of APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and tagging him as a religious fanatic.
Desmond, in a statement on Sunday, June 12 said that Tinubu was smart enough to make the best choice of running mate that would deliver victory when the time came.
“Nigerians are highly religious and political-minded people. We all respect ourselves and our religions, right from independence.
“The Muslim-Muslim ticket issue is dead on arrival and those speculate are out to cast aspersion on the person of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu."
