The Nigeria Cleric and pastor of Exousia Church of God , Abuja. Pastor Soji while speaking to newsmen at the just concluded unveiling of the Asiwaju Tinubu’s Vice presidential Candidate, in Abuja. He maintained that TINUBU / SHETIMA ticket is the Journey of Victory
The Wednesday Greenland news gathered from Pastor SOJI that , Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima are not religious fundamentalists or ultra Muslims, their records in public offices are testimonies to rely on. This was made known to Greenland news at the unveiling of APC vice presidential Candidate in Abuja on Wednesday at the popular yar’dua Centre.
“As a two-term governor in Borno State, Shettima enjoyed the support of the Christian community throughout his tenure. ‘In fact, the Borno chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, testified that ‘In the history of Borno State, there is no governor that has been fair to the Christian community as much as Governor Kashim Shettima’.”
Pastor Soji said Shettima has respect for the Christian faith and sponsored many Christians for pilgrimage during his tenure as governor.
“Asiwaju Tinubu and our party have made an excellent choice in Senator Shettima. The former two-term governor of Borno State entered public service with impeccable credentials, which he has burnished by demonstrating great competence, integrity and courage in all the positions he has held.
“His background in academics and the private sector prepared him for the achievements he has recorded in politics as governor and since his election to the Senate in 2019.
“A loyal and committed member of our party, Senator Shettima has what it takes to be an excellent running mate to our flag bearer, and insha Allah, the Vice President of Federal Republic of Nigeria from next year.
He said Shettima has over the years proved his mettle as a shrewd and progressive politician whose eight years as governor of Borno State – from 2011 to 2019 – was a defining moment for the state.
“Asiwaju is widely known as the biggest talent hunter in the country who has over the years assembled an army of performers in governance irrespective of their ethnicity or religious leaning. This unique feature also can be found in Senator Shettima following his track record of excellence in both the private and public sectors.
Nigeria needs transformational leadership, regardless of tribe, religion and primordial sentiments. Nigeria needs leadership that will be able to transform this country to where we will grow, have opportunities and where people will have trust and ownership in governance.”
Speaking on Muslim-Muslim ticket, Pastor Soji stressed that Tinubu as a philanthropic and a detrabilize man would give every religion, tribe and ethnic group their accorded rights and respect, assuring that Nigerians better days lie ahead as Nigerians marching to next year’s general elections.
“ I want to assure you that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is always giving everyone their respect.
“He has demonstrated this when he was Governor of Lagos State, every religions and tribes in Lagos enjoyed him in terms of religious tolerance.
“His wife is a Christian ( PASTOR ) from a popular denomination and they have been living peacefully, that single character has demonstrated that Asiwaju Tinubu would be able to manage and govern the country with due respect and recognition to everyone.”
They would have preferred our presidential candidate to settle for less so as to make it easy for them to win the election but the choice of the trusted and trustworthy Shettima must have disorganised their evil plans.
While we sympathise with the opposition parties, we appeal to Nigerians, who will eventually be the beneficiaries of good governance under Tinubu-Shettima presidency, to see beyond the sentiments of religion and tribe, pastor added.
