A former governor of Abia state and the present Senate chief whip, Orji Uzor-Kalu has assured that Christians across Nigeria would be adequately protected should the presidential flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress secure a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
Daily Trust reports that Uzo-Kalu believes that the controversy been raised over the possibility of APC fielding a Muslim vice presidential candidate as running mate to Bola Tinubu is not necessary.
Speaking to journalists at the National Assembly on Wednesday, June 15, the lawmaker urged Christians in Nigeria not to feel threatened over such a political combination.
Recalling that Remi, the wife of Tinubu, is a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Uzor-Kalu said contrary to wide perceptions, women are usually the head of the house.

Remi Tinubu; a politician and pastor
Remi Tinubu, a lawmaker who represents Lagos Central in the Senate, was ordained an assistant pastor of the RCCG in 2018.
Uzor Kalu said:
“Let me tell you, in my house, my wife is the head of the house in reality. Even you men that are here, now that your wives aren’t here, they are the head.
"Like if I wear this cloth, my wife will tell me ‘My dear, this cloth is not good remove it’.
"Your wife will tell you you are supposed to eat Akara and Akamu, whether you argue with her, you must take that Akamu and your wife want you to pay children school fees, whether you argue or not, you must pay."
Further urging Christians to relax as they are in safe hands with the Tinubus and the ruling APC, the former governor said Remi has the political knowledge that could favour the Christians.
“The Christians should relax because Tinubu’s wife is a pastor and once she’s a pastor we are protected because she’s not a housewife. She has political knowledge."
