Ademola Adeleke Won Osun On A Christian-christian Ticket. Any Implication? by GeorgesDiary(m): 3:48pm On Jul 17
[Updated] Ademola Adeleke won Osun on a Christian-Christian ticket. What are the implications and does this expose our hypocrisy as a people?

Osun is a state with a considerable number of Muslims. Although Ademola comes from a family that used to be known as a Muslim family many years back, most of them have since converted to Christianity.

Adeleke University, a school founded by Adedeji Adeleke, the father of Davido is a faith-based school aligned with Seventh-Day Adventist Church. The institution has immortalized the Adeleke brand with a Christian perception.

While Senator Ademola Adeleke has always been seen as a Christian, his father was a Muslim named Raji Ajoola Adeleke while his mother is an Igbo-Christian named Nnenna Esther Adeleke. His brother also served in politics as a senator before his demise which brought Ademola to the limelight.

With Ademola Adeleke winning Osun state with a Christian-Christian ticket, it raises questions on why people are quick to condemn Tinubu's choice of a running mate but raised no eyebrow against Ademola's choice.

Tinubu on the other hand is not an extreme Muslim. He is married to a Pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God and has supported his wife's ambition; a marriage that has lasted for 40 years. Tinubu, like most Yorubas, is not a religious bigot.

Although recent happenings in Nigeria have triggered mistrust among religious adherents, especially with the propaganda of Islamization and events that give credibility to such propaganda, we can't deny that many of us are simply hypocrites.

I also believe that Tinubu's choice of Shetimma as a running mate is a major issue for some people even though they are giving it a religious colouration. Shetimma is perceived as someone who isn't tolerant. Some statements allegedly credited to him are a strong red flag if it's anything to go by. If Tinubu had chosen a more liberal Muslim who is seen as tolerant, it may have sparked fewer reactions.

Yes, the people of Osun made their choice. Maybe, we must also let Nigerians make their choice.

If we see nothing wrong with Ademola's Christian-Christian ticket which gave him victory at the polls, then we need to rethink our perception of the same faith tickets.

Maybe, we need to stop labelling tickets with religion as religion should be a private affair. It's the people that will decide who they want to vote for. If they accept a Muslim-Muslim administration, it should be their choice.

Of course, Nigeria is still evolving politically and with time we will get better. However, the concerns of people whether it is the "Islamization agenda" or "Christianization Agenda" must be addressed in strong collaboration with religious leaders.

It begins with removing religious laws from some states. We can't claim to be a secular State, yet we have states almost officially recognized as "Islamic States". Nigerians somewhere shouldn't be judged with Qur'an just as Nigerians elsewhere aren't judged with the Bible.

Maybe, the Federal Government needs to step up its game, separate religion further from the state, and pass laws that give all people a sense of belonging regardless of their faith. This is why we need a constitutional review.

Don't expect Labour Party formerly PDP not to play religion politics. And don't expect the South East and South-South not to to play the politics of religion. And don't expect CAN not to play the politics of religion.

Knowing they will play it what will APC do? If I am APC what will I do? 5 things

1. My campaign DG must be a Pastor

2. Tinubu's wife must start been seen in different churches. She must start going for programmes and as she is going for programmes, she drop offering.

3. Not just go to different churches, she must be seen. APC must make a campaign out of it.

4. Tinubu's children must also be seen going to different churches.

5. APC must stop playing defensive game. What do I mean? The APC has multiple Governors who are Christians, why are they not been unleash?

I am not a BATist, I am OBIDIENT but I also believe that we can make our voice heard at the polls. If we don't like Muslim-Muslim ticket, then we should reject it at the polls.

While Senator Ademola Adeleke has always been seen as a Christian, his father was a Muslim named Raji Ajoola Adeleke while his mother is an Igbo-Christian named Nnenna Esther Adeleke.

Christian Christian ticket in Osun state is a local issue for Osun people or do you expect it to become problem for someone in Sokoto or Calabar?Unlike APC moslim moslim ticket APC at presidential level.You can't compare the two.It is like bringing your village attitude to the city you know it won't work.

It doesn't mean anything.
Yorubas are very liberal with religion. A family of four can be divided into two one part as Christians and vice versa.

What is this??

A ticket at the state level and one at the national level cannot be compared

Kashim Shettima ran a Muslim/Muslim ticket through out; Zulum is now the same
In Kano it's the same
Likewise in Zamfara and Kaduna and other Northern state

In Rivers State it is Christian/Christian
Likewise in Anambra
Akwa Ibom
Bayelsa and Ebonyi and a lot of other southern States

These are much more bearable
As they involved only a section of the country

But at the national level it is About everyone in Nigeria
So, why being bais to some people and putting others at advantage

BE FAIR TO ALL

As regards your question for number 5.
The christian governors are incompetent according to Tinubu. infact he said no Northern governor is competent in APC that was why he went for competent Shettima.
So you want incompetent governors to come defend the competent Tinubu

What about Southern Governors who are Christains. Are they also expecting to be pick as Vice-president?

What about Osibanjo? After he has come back to full health, he should also prepare to campaign.
