Shettima: Christians supporting Tinubu betray the faith, says cleric

A pastor with Answers’ Assembly in Warri, Delta State, Irabor Wisdom, has said that Christians supporting All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu’s choice of a Muslim-Muslim ticket have betrayed the church.

In a Facebook post, the cleric said Nigeria is already on the path of Islamisation and a Muslim-Muslim ticket should not be allowed.

Recall that Tinubu on Sunday unveiled former governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, as his running mate. The announcement sparked reactions as the Christian Association of Nigeria kicked against the choice of a Muslim-Muslim ticket by the ruling party.

Reacting, Wisdom said, “Now that Tinubu has announced a Muslim/Muslim presidential candidacy, any spiritual father, mentor, church, or Christian that supports him or votes for him has left the faith and has betrayed the Church of Christ.

“They have also proven to us that they are the real enemies of Christianity in Nigeria.

“All members of such spiritual fathers, mentors and pastors should stop attending such churches, as they may not be safe under such a leader.

“If under President Buhari with a Pastor as Vice President, Christians are being killed like chickens, under a Muslim/Muslim government, there may not be Christians anywhere in the land. Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu should know better.”
