Muslim-Muslim Ticket: Tinubu Goes To Church For Endorsement, Meets Pastor Adeboye


The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, met with the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, following the issue surrounding the ruling party’s Muslim-Muslim presidential preference.

THISDAY reported yesterday that Tinubu had assembled a team of eminent individuals with whom he planned to meet with Christian leaders within the party and faith-based organisations such as the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), and the Catholic, in order to appeal to them and secure their support.

A source in the Tinubu Campaign team, who pleaded anonymity, informed THISDAY that the plan, which was going to be a holistic approach to the crisis, was to make the Christian community see reasons behind the Muslim-Muslim ticket, adding that Tinubu decided to lead a team to appeal to the Christian community.

But THISDAY yesterday gathered that the meeting with Adeboye was actually held on Sunday at the Redemption camp.

A reliable source, who also pleaded anonymity, told THISDAY that the meeting with Adeboye was very fruitful, adding that the clergy was not against a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

Though THISDAY could not confirm those on Tinubu’s entourage to the meeting with Adeboye, it was reliably gathered that the wife of the presidential hopeful, Senator Oluremi,was there.

“He met Adeboye on Sunday. The meeting was very fruitful. He (Adeboye) is not against Muslim-Muslim ticket,” the source said
