Clergymen At Shettima’s Unveiling Were Not Fake – Tinubu

Written by on July 21, 2022

The presidential flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has countered accusations by critics who claimed his campaign team hired thugs to pose as Christian clergy at Wednesday’s unveiling of the party’s vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima.

The APC had unveiled former Borno State Governor, Senator Shettima as its vice presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections.

The event, which was held at the Shehu Yar’adua centre in Abuja, had in attendance the party’s presidential candidate and ex-Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, party chieftains and religious leaders.

A communique through the Director, Media & Communication of his Campaign Organisation,  Bayo Onanuga, described the event as an open affair, which allowed members of the public to attend, including the clergymen and some others now being derided by hirelings of the opposition.

The former governor of Lagos also alluded to the viral pictures and videos of the clergymen and women  “as unwarranted distractions” by political opponents.

Tinubu stressed that his social media gathering and buzz was a calculated ploy by those seeking his downfall to distract many from the success of the unveiling.
