Judging by the way all manner of bishops and ‘bigshoppers’ flooded the venue of Tinubu’s unveiling of his Muslim-Muslim ticket with Shettima, you would think some kind of communion was being shared. In fact, some ‘bishops’ even came to the event in their choir regalia. It was truly a sight to behold.
Like I said in one of my earlier posts, Tinubu has set himself on the path of endless controversy and drama with his desperate choice. Whatever he says or does henceforth will be viewed from a religious lens.
No one is interested in knowing whether his wife is a Christian pastor or not, what matters is that millions of Nigerian Christians who feel left out in his future administration would make sure his name is attached to everything bad in the country. It’s therefore laughable having unknown rented ‘bishops’ at an event in which they will be treated as mere clowns decked in funny attires.
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has reportedly disowned these funny ‘bishops’ as hungry clowns searching for their daily bread. You should understand that bread is now very expensive in Nigeria, so the hustle is real and desperate.
How well he weathers the storm of religious controversies likely to trail his choice of a Muslim-Muslim ticket remains to be seen in the months and years to come. One thing is certain, the drama is just starting.
