Following the controversies which have been trailing the APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket, some Nigerians were surprised to see Bishops dressed in clerical robes at the event.
The presence of the Bishops at the event had generated reactions on online, and some social media users even claimed that the Bishops were fake. But the Tinubu Campaign Organization had issued a statement saying that the Bishops were not fake.
While speaking about why they attended the event, Igbokwe Prince, who is a Senior Pastor at Yoke Breaker Prophetic Ministry in Abuja, said that they attended the unveiling because of their respect for APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.
He said that most of the clerics at the event were backing Yakubu Pam, Executive Secretary of Christians Pilgrims Commission, to be picked as the APC running mate, but when that did not happen, they had to respect the decision of the party.
Igbokwe Prince said that Nigerians should understand that APC decided to fly the Muslim-Muslim ticket to win the 2023 election, and urged Nigerians not to mix religion with politics.
