The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has come under heavy criticism over ‘blasphemous statement’ made whilst attacking the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.
Akelicious reports that Tinubu during his campaign rally in Anambra earlier today accused the former Anambra state governor of being a serial betrayer.
According to Tinubu, who made reference from the bible, Obi denied Jesus Christ three times and had failed to keep his promise to God.
He said: “Me, I am not afraid of anybody and I don’t worry. The man who left here he calls himself Peter Obi. We read in the Bible that before cock crows three times, he will deny Jesus Christ. He denied [Jesus], so how can he keep a promise to you if he cannot keep promise to God.”
Some Nigerian accused the former governor of making a caricature of the scriptures, something according to them, he cannot do with the Quran.

“This man is just committing blasphemy.And he always do this shit with the Christain faith. He Keeps on quoting the Holy Bible and even the quoran wrongly as a muslim. God forbid Tinubu must never get anywhere close to government.”
