A cleric, Pastor Alamu Tunji, has expressed his optimism that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, will win the 2023 presidential election.
According to The Nation, the Senior Pastor of Christ Apostolic Church Agbala Itusile, Abule Egba, stated the former governor of Lagos will win the election despite the controversies caused by the same faith ticket of the APC.
He urged the Christian Association of Nigeria not to be alarmed, claiming that no one can Islamize the country. Tinubu, he said, has not Islamized his immediate family, referring to his wife and children as Christians.
In a statement on Monday, the cleric said: ‘’Tinubu’s wife is an ordained Pastor at Redeemed Christian Church of God(RCCG). Somebody that can allow or tolerate his wife to be a minister after being a Christian will not fight Christianity. I am thinking when he becomes President, he will support the church like he has supported his wife and children.”
Tunji stated that a Vice President is only as useful as the principal desires, and that the choice of Senator Kashim Shettima is purely political and not intended to belittle Christianity.
