Muslim-Muslim Ticket: Tinubu’s Wife Will Be The Pastor In Aso Rock – Keyamo

Tinubu’s Wife

Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has said on Tuesday that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential flag-bearer of the APC, already has a multi-religious home and everyone is allowed to freely practice his/her chosen religion.

Keyamo stated that the APC candidate’s wife, Senator Remi Tinubu is already a pastor, adding that the Aso Rock Chapel will be put to good use and Mrs Tinubu will lead worship in it if her husband wins the presidential seat in 2023.

Speaking in an interview, he defended the choice of Tinubu and the APC over the adoption of a Muslim-Muslim ticket by selecting Senator Kashim Shettima as the vice presidential candidate despite the knocks from concerned Nigerians, specifically the Christians m.

BUT, the Minister noted that the move is a tactical strategy to win and not in any way to disunite the country.

His words; “It has nothing to do with unity, it’s just a winning strategy.

“It’s not a spit on the Christians. Muslims are a minority in the south and Asiwaju is Muslim from the south. Some Muslims are a minority in the north.

“Like I said, look at Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a person. Look at his record. He was one that returned all the mission schools to them in Lagos when he was governor.

“For the churches, he returned the mission schools to them. He has a multi-religious home. Some of his children are Christians. His wife is a pastor.

“The chapel in the villa will be overly used because the wife automatically will be the pastor, attending that chapel. So the chapel will not be closed down. He will be using it when he is by the grace of God president of this country.”
