Muslim-Muslim ticket: Tinubu meets northern Pentecostal bishops

Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, met with Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria on Thursday in Abuja.

Tinubu, who disclosed this in a Facebook post on Thursday, said the meeting was to discuss important national issues.

The Thursday’s meeting happened following opposition towards the ruling party’s Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.

“Earlier today at a lively, productive and amiable meeting with a delegation representing the Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria, we discussed important issues of national significance as well as my determination to deliver unity, harmony and lasting peace to Nigeria,” Tinubu said

Bishops Forum of the Northern States (PBFNS) in Nigeria is led by Archbishop John Praise of Dominion Chapel International Church, Abuja.

Recall that Northern APC Christian leaders, led by former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, have continued to publicly express their disavowal for Tinubu’s decision to choose a Muslim running mate from the North. Lawal described the decision as “demonic plot” to eliminate northern Christians from positions of power.

Lawal and his group has since vowed to work against Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election.
