Tinubu, Ruling APC Making Moves To Lobby, Bribe Christian Association Of Nigeria by IamFINESSE: 4:56pm On Jul 24, 2022
Some top APC members of the Christian extraction have kicked against the Muslim-Muslim ticket and expressed their dissatisfaction with the choice of former Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima as Bola Tinubu’s running mate.
There is fresh information regarding how the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has initiated moves to lobby and bribe some leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to get their support for its Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.
Some top APC members of the Christian extraction have kicked against the Muslim-Muslim ticket and expressed their dissatisfaction with the choice of former Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima as Bola Tinubu’s running mate.
Tinubu and Shettima are Muslims – a combination that has triggered varying reactions since the former recently announced the latter as his running mate in Katsina.
Tinubu is from Southern Nigeria while Shettima, a former Borno governor, is from the Muslim-dominated Northern part of the country.
The APC Christian leaders have described the Muslim-Muslim ticket as an insult, particularly as the party’s leadership claimed that competence was the yardstick - implying that no Christian across the north possesses this quality.
CAN and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) have both kicked against the team of Tinubu and Shettima as the presidential and vice-presidential candidates of the ruling party.
Some respected party members have either quit their membership or stepped aside from the APC’s presidential campaign and are now ready to hit the streets to drive home their grievances.
The APC candidate recently met with the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, following the controversy trailing the Muslim-Muslim ticket.
Sources at the weekend told SaharaReporters that Tinubu had set up a team of eminent persons with whom he was scheduled to meet the Christian leaders within the party and faith-based organisations like CAN, PFN and the Catholic, to appeal to them and secure their support.
“The APC, having failed to justify its Muslim-Muslim ticket through other mediums, have reached out to the leadership of the Christian Association in Nigeria to endorse its choice of vice presidential candidate,” a Christian leader and member of CAN told SaharaReporters.
“The APC has concluded plans to secure the endorsement of CAN towards quelling the agitations that have come about due to its choice of Senator Kashim Shettima, a Muslim as the vice-presidential candidate of the party.
"I can tell you authoritatively that APC leadership has sent emissaries to our leadership (CAN) to support or endorse the decision to field a Muslim-Muslim ticket. Talks are ongoing, and the inducement figure is very tempting. I won't be shocked in the days and weeks ahead; we might see a statement from a faction of CAN endorsing the APC presidential team.
“This is a big challenge for the APC. I think it has realized that the Muslim-Muslim ticket has elicited resentment from most people who view such disposition as an affront to the sensibilities of Christians across the country."
He continued, “My fear is that some CAN leaders may not resist the offer. It is structured in such a way that it would leave no traces behind. And the amount involved is huge. Talks are ongoing through a senior member of the association with the mandate to get the buy-in of other critical stakeholders in the association."
The statement was corroborated by a close associate of one of the leaders of CAN. He stated that there had been tremendous pressure to appease the association.
“Before the unveiling of Kashim Shettima, some APC stalwarts reached out to the leadership of CAN, extending an invitation to attend the event. This was rebuffed by CAN, citing no moral justification to attend the event in the face of a clear lack of respect for the sensibilities of Christians in the country,” he said.
“The condition given was the replacement of Kashim Shettima as the vice-presidential candidate of the APC. The decision was hinged on the fact that other political parties respected the ethnic and religious sensitivities in the country, and the APC should not be an exception.”
He added, “I am ashamed of what is going on. I can’t believe that such a topic would be deliberated upon in the first instance. I know the money promised is very tempting, but as servants of the Lord, and at this stage, they ought to have risen above this inducement.
“Why do you think the Christian community can’t speak in one voice? Most of the members of CAN have been grandstanding. They are in the habit of taking care of themselves. If only Nigerians would realize the rot in CAN, they would henceforth take with a pinch of salt whatever statement that emanates from the association.”
An APC chieftain confirmed to SaharaReporters that emissaries had been sent to CAN leadership. He however denied the Christian leaders were being induced with cash.
“We are talking about competence over religious considerations. Talks have reached advanced stages through proxies.“
Calls put across by SaharaReporters to Felix Morka, APC spokesman were not answered or returned.

In Tinupoos mind, everything and everybody can be bought with cash. He's so convinced of this that he acts shamelessly without remorse.
You have to blame Lagosians though... They allowed this man so much space and time to build this sickening level of evil confidence..

Tinubu and his strategists and his politically naive supporters miscalculated that they don't need much Christian votes to win the election, forgetting Atiku a fellow Muslim is also guaranteed of nothing less than 50% of Muslim Votes in his own region North, APC and Tinubu supporters even labelled CAN as a PDP organization, all of a sudden they are they now desperately trying to get CAN validation of their Muslim Muslim ticket and desperately seeking for Christian votes now in order to match Atiku voting numbers coming from the North in 2023.
They were expecting Votes from the North, thinking Tinubu will pull more vote than Atiku because of APC Governors in the North, but every week , we keep seeing defections of Northen APC members into PDP, and Tinubu and his startegy team are beginning to doubt the loyalty and political influence of some of these Northern APC Governors .
Tinubu pick of Shettimma(Kanuri Minority) was expected to energize and galvanize the Muslim base in the North, but that wasn't achieved, The majority Fulani/Hausa voting population in the North doesn't seem fazed by Shettimma a minority Kanuri whose only political influence is in the Kanuri dominated states of Borno and Yobe.
Tinubu and his Strategy team permutations and calculations has grossly back fired, they taught this was 1992 , when CAN was indifference to political activities going on in the country.
Now Tinubu and his Strategy are fuuckking scared and still trying to fathom why the APC Northern Base(Majorly Fulan/Hausa) is not energized by a minority Shettimma vice president ticket.
Awon were
Tinubu ti lule


Dead on Arrival
It can't work
CAN should collect Tinubu's money , use part of the money to mobilize voters and support for Peter Obi and Atiku, and give go ahead and marching orders to their members to vote Peter Obi(Labour Party) and Atiku (PDP)
Tinubu will not be President
He has automatically lost over 18 million Christian votes,
Both Tinubu and Atiku will share majority of the Muslim votes, with Atiku getting more of those Muslim votes from the North region.
Whoever still thinks Tinubu will get more votes than Atiku in the North needs to get his/her head checked for mental evaluation.

Peter Obi and Atiku will share at least 90% of the Christian Votes in both southern and Northern Nigeria
Where will Tinubu get the votes to counter balance Atiku's high voting numbers in the North.
South South and South East are far out of reach for Tinubu, he will come distant Third behind Peter Obi and Atiku there.
He may win south west with very tight slim margin, he can't get block votes in the south west anymore with this Muslim Muslim ticket, millions of south west christian votes will be shared between Atiku and Peter Obi.
Tinubu Presidential ambition is Dead on Arrival (DOA) without the over 20 million Christian votes.
Atiku is inevitably the next President of Nigeria...

Which kind yeye report is this?

If you think that you are hurting Tinubu with this report think again because you have just succeeded in ridiculing CAN as people that can be easily bribed.

In these Last days, anything is possible. So many so called Christians are ready to sell their faith or even deny JESUS Christ.

But Woe besides anyone who sells his/ her conscience for a plate of pottage!

It would have been better for Him/her if he/she was not born.
