Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Ahmed Bola Tinubu held a meeting with some Pentecostal Bishops in the Northern part of Nigeria.
According to a report by pulse.ng, the Chairman of Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria, Archbishop John Praise while responding to him, said that the forum is not committed to endorsing anybody.
Archbishop John Praise told the other Bishops that they should ask their conscience and from what they have heard and from the explanation, he (Tinubu) had given to them to make their own judgement of who will better rule and handle the country.
While defending his party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket to the Christian leaders, Tinubu said that he chose the former governor of Borno state, Kashim Shettima as his running mate because of his competence and not religion
The former Governor of Lagos state explained that only competence can resolve the political and socioeconomic challenges bedevilling Nigeria. Tinubu said he has always been a friend of the Christian community.
Tinubu then urged the Christian leaders to consider him based on his track records, plans, and agenda for developing Nigeria.
