Christian Support Group for APC in Dass, Tafawa Balewa abd Bogoro local governments in Bauchi State have expressed their total support for the Muslim/Muslim ticket of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima in the 2023 presidential election.
The convener of the group, Dr. Godfrey Manasseh, while peaking at a rally in Tafawa Balewa town yesterday said they took this decision because of Tinubu’s capacity, religious tolerance and detribalisation.
“The fact that he allows his wife and children to go to Church, we don’t see this (Muslim-Muslim) ticket as many people claim. To us, we don’t see him as a complete Muslim. We have decided to endorse him not just because of his ability to accept us but hope that we have seen in his campaign agenda which he presented to Nigerians, ” he said.
Manasseh added that the constituency will be ungrateful to APC if it shunned Tinubu next year.
He said the party made their kinsman, Dogara, a speaker, appointed Suleiman Bogoro to head TETFund and has started construction of Air force University in Tafawa Balewa and other projects.
The chairman of the Tinubu/Shettima Independent Campaign Council, Tony Okocha commended the Christian supporters for declaring support for Tinubu despite pressure from others to reject the same faith ticket
