2023: Despite criticism of Muslim-Muslim ticket Bishops, Pastors storm venue of unveiling of Shettima

Despite daunting criticism following the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, the party is unveiling Senator Kashim Shettima as the running mate to its presidential flagbearer, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Among dignataries attending the event which is currently holding at the Musa Yar’adua centre in Abuja are coalition of Bishops, pastors and other Christian groups.

The Bishops were spotted in their numbers dressed in their cassocks.

This is contrary to the position of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), which has vehimently condemned the choice of Muslim-Muslim ticket as insensitive to the ethno-religion diversity of Nigeria.

Recall the Christian body had on Tuesday issued an official statement rejecting selection of Kashim Shettima as the running mate to Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

One of the Bishops who spoke to journalists on condition of anonymity said that they were at the event to declare their support for Tinubu-Shettima presidential ticket.

Presidential candidate of the party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the leadership of the APC led by Senator Abdullahi Adamu and several other party leaders are expected at the event.

Meanwhile, the security situation in and around the venue is tight with mammoth crowd of supporters and praise singers have beiseged the venue, making it difficult for invited guests and Journalists to gain entrance.
