The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has revealed why he did not force his wife, Senator Oluremi to convert to Islam.
Oluremi, who has been married to Tinubu for more than 30 years, is a Pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
Tinubu was responding to the controversy that has been trailing his decision to pick Kashim Shettima, a fellow Muslim from Borno as deputy ahead of the 2023 election.
Speaking during an interface with CAN leadership in Kano led by the state chairman, Rev. Samuel Adeyemo, Tinubu said, his choice of deputy does not mean he doesn’t respect Christainity.
He said, “I know you would not want to be an enemy to the winning team. I am a politician, I have a formula, and my formula is to win elections without rigging. I am a minority Muslim from Yoruba, how will I go and chose one Emmanuel from Sokoto…,” Tinubu said.
