Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has said that Christians have nothing to fear over the Muslim-Muslim ticket his party APC has presented ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
Last Sunday, July 10, the APC Presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, a Muslim, announced former Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima, a Muslim, as his running mate. The announcement has been greeted with mixed reactions with many Christians saying this is a slap on the Christian community. Some have argued that his decision to pick a Muslim as his running mate implied that he could not find a competent Christian to run with.
In a series of tweets shared last night, Keyamo said Christians have nothing to fear. He opined that Tinubu is so tolerant that he allowed his only wife, Remi Tinubu become a Pastor in his own house. Remi was made a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God in August 2018.
