THE AHMED TINUBU CAMPAING ORGANISATION SAYS CHRISTIAN CLERICS AT THE VICE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE UNVEILING CEREMONY WERE NOT HIRED
July 21, 2022
The presidential candidate of the ruling all progressives congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has stated that the clerics at the unveiling of his running mate Senator Kashim Shettima were not fake.
He said they were at the event, which was open to all, as genuine well-wishers.
The former Lagos governor, in a statement by the Tinubu campaign Organization (TCO), said the viral videos and pictures of the clerics at the event were the handiworks of political detractors.
The statement by director of media and communication of the organization, Bayo Onanuga, described the development as unwarranted distractions.
APC yesterday presented senator Shettima to the public and its various organs as the running mate to the party’s presidential standard-bearer at the well-attended ceremony at Shehu Yar’adua Centre, Abuja.
But many faulted the presence of Christian clerics at the event, alleging they were hired and fake.
