2023: Nothing can stop Tinubu from winning – Pastor

Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will win the 2023 poll despite the same-faith ticket, Pastor Alamu David Tunji (JP) has declared.

The Senior Pastor of Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) Agbala Itusile, Abule Egba Lagos, said Tinubu is unstoppable despite the criticism against the same-faith ticket in some quarters.

He appealed to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) not to entertain fears, stating nobody can Islamise the nation. Tinubu, he pointed out, has not Islamised his immediate family with his wife and children as Christians.In a statement on Monday, the cleric said: ‘’Tinubu’s wife is an ordained Pastor at Redeemed Christian Church of God(RCCG). Somebody that can allow or tolerate his wife to be a minister after being a Christian will not fight Christianity. I am thinking when he becomes President, he will support the church like he has supported his wife and children.

Tunji said a Vice President is as useful as the principal wants, stating the choice of Senator Kashim Shettima is simply a political calculation not meant to denigrate Christianity.

Nigerians, he pointed out, have been relating well, asking voters not to be bothered by religious sentiments in making their choices.He added: ‘’Christians and Muslims in Nigeria cannot eliminate themselves. We marry and do business together. We school together. None of us goes to the market bothered whether the trader or buyer is Christian or Muslim. So, why should be bother when it comes to politics?’’

He advised Church leaders to change the mindset that politics is dirty, saying this is why many Christians have left the space for Muslims.

To reverse the trend, he said churches must amend their sermons that politic is good and embark on seminar to recruit God-fearing believers into the political space.‘’I advise all pastors and ministers of the gospel to change their orientation on politics. We should emulate somebody like Pastor Tunde Bakare.

‘’There was a gathering of politicians somewhere in Nigeria. The auditorium was filled but surprisingly when it was the time of Muslim prayer the auditorium emptied. Few Christians remained and the convener of the meeting is a Christian. As Christians, we still have a long way to go with political engagement and involvement,’’ he said.
