Left to Right: Tinubu and Adeboye

“He met Adeboye on Sunday. The meeting was very fruitful.  He (Adeboye) is not against Muslim-Muslim ticket”

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has met with the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, amid the controversy trailing the Muslim-Muslim presidential preference of the ruling party.

The APC standard bearer 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 the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) and the Catholic, to appeal to them and secure their buy-in, THISDAY reports.


A source in the Tinubu Campaign team, who pleaded anonymity, informed THISDAY that the plan, which was going to be a holistic approach to the crisis, was to make the Christian community see reasons behind the Muslim-Muslim ticket, adding that Tinubu decided to lead a team to appeal to the Christian community.

It was gathered on Tuesday that the meeting with Adeboye was actually held on Sunday at the Redemption camp, according to THISDAY.
