Tinubu Campaign Organisation (TCO) has responded to the allegation making the rounds that All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu hired some Christian bishops to attend the official unveiling of his running mate, Kashim Shettima.
In a statement by the Director of Media and Communication, Tinubu Campaign Organisation, Mr. Bayo Onanuga said:
“We want to say that those clergymen were not fake, not mechanics or yam sellers as the purveyors of hatred have made Nigerians to believe in the social media.”
“They are not big names in Christendom yet, they are gradually building up their missions.”
“They are church leaders who genuinely believe that Nigerians must eschew politics of hatred and religious bigotry and rather embrace politics of peace and nation building.”
“We, therefore, deplore the hysterical twisting of the presence of these men and women in cassocks and the false accusation against our candidates, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Shettima”.
