Tinubu and Shettima

A cleric, Prophet Isa El-Buba, has stated the ruling All Progressives Congress has messed up its chances of winning the 2023 Presidential election in Nigeria

El-Buba who is the General Overseer of the Evangelical Outreach Ministries International, with headquarters in Jos, Plateau State, stated this in an interview with The PUNCH.

According to him, the decision of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to pick a Muslim running mate, Kashim Shettima is one which causes serious unrest in a country like Nigeria which has been marred with religious conflicts in recent years.

“With the Muslim-Muslim ticket, the APC has messed up its chances without remedy.

“It’s a sacrilege. That decision is injurious to the faith of a people. Nigeria’s population is about 230 million. More than half of that number is Christians. You can only joke with that population at your own peril politically.” he stated.

He also revealed that as a member of the Christian body, he is sure that CAN and PFN will totally boycott the APC during the 2023 Presidential election.

“Absolutely and I’m saying it categorically even though the national bodies of CAN and PFN have made no statement on that but I’m part of the leadership of the Christian body.

“We are totally boycotting the APC and its presidential candidate and what they stand for. It doesn’t matter if they make any changes, the damage has been done and the intention has been revealed. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Who they really are is what they have demonstrated in choosing the candidates.” he added.
