The Christian Community Shouldn’t Lose Sleep Over APC’s Muslim/Muslim Ticket – Faleke

Member of the House of Representatives and Leader of the Tinubu Support Group (TSG), Hon. James Faleke, has called on the country’s Christians not to lose sleep over the emergence of two Muslims as presidential candidates and All Progressives Congress (APC) running mate for the 2023 ballot.

He spoke yesterday in Abuja, at a meeting organized by Tinubu Media Team to praise his role in Asiwaju’s victory in the party’s presidential primary.

Faleke said the sentiments of the Christian community are understandable but Nigerians must learn to distance themselves from religious politics.

He said, “What is important is that when we sit here we don’t care that Christians should sit here and Muslims should sit on the other side and when we board a plane, we don’t bother to ask if the pilot is Muslim or Christian, the same when we go to the market; we don’t care who we buy from.

“So what we’re saying is we brought people of pedigree. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has the extra pedigree and thread and has never discriminated against Christians or even any tribe.

“I am a living example; I am a Christian and I represent him directly. As for the tribe, I am not from Lagos; I am from Kogi State; so he’s the type of person we want.

“If you are talking about religion, if Asiwaju has not Islamized his wife; we don’t see how he can Islamize Nigeria. His wife is not only a Christian; he even allowed the woman to grow up to be a pastor.

“If there is no favorable environment for her at home, she will not become a pastor. These are the questions we should talk about. Asiwaju was the one who handed over the Lagos Mission School to the owners when he came on board, so you can imagine all the trouble.
