Former Minister of Aviation and All Progressive Congress (APC) Chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said Christians should not be afraid of the Party’s choice of a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.
Speaking in an interview on Channels Television, the ex-minister said no one could Islamise the country as feared by Many Christians on the party’s choice of the Muslim-Muslim ticket.
Although he admitted to warning Nigerians about a plot by the current administration to Islamise Nigeria, He said he then realised that the Muslim-Muslim ticket poses no threats after he prayed about the situation.
He said: “Obviously, there are issues with the same faith ticket. There are issues with that. Any Christian that will tell you he is particularly happy with that then seriously speaking cannot be a real Christian.”
“But as far as I’m concerned, it’s simply an issue of choice. The issue of Fulanisation we talked about has been thrown out of the window because the party we accused of that has shifted power to the South. When I joined the APC, I realized that things have completely changed.”
“A country where we have about 22 Christian Governors, with the whole of South West all Christian Governors, tells you that this country cannot be Islamised and out party, the APC is not interested in that. We have reformed. We are moving forward,”
The APC chieftain also added that Bola Tinubu’s choice of Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate was in the country’s best interest.
Kayode also added that the ex-Borno Governor, Shettima, had built more churches than any other Governor before him in the State.
