“We have tried the Muslim-Christian ticket, let us try this too” – Tinubu’s wife tells Nigerians

Oluremi Tinubu, the wife of the presidential flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged Nigerians to vote for the party’s same-faith ticket as the Muslim-Christian ticket has failed over time.


Tinubu said Nigerians should “drive out” the former governor of Lagos state after his first term if he failed to perform to their expectation, Daily Trust reported.

The senator made the call at the women’s rally of the party in the southeast for the Tinubu/Shettima presidential campaign council in Owerri, the Imo state capital.

His statement reads in part:

“Let’s leave religion aside; I am a Christian. Have you ever thought that one day a Christian-Christian candidate would emerge? What would be the reference point? We have tried the Muslim-Christian ticket, let us try this one too and after four years if they don’t do well, you can drive them out.”

According to her, voting in Nigeria should not be about faith, but about a candidate with the fear of God.

She stressed that if the person in power has the fear of God, he or she will treat the people well.

The former first lady of Lagos then promised to ensure that Tinubu’s administration favours the women if elected in the forthcoming poll.
