The lawmaker representing Ikeja Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, James Faleke has called on Christians not to be moved by the Muslim/Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress.
The leader of the Tinubu Support Group on Wednesday claimed that the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu has no agenda to Islamize Nigeria.
Faleke stated this in Abuja during a meeting organised by the Tinubu Media Team to commend him on his role in the victory of Tinubu at the party’s presidential primary election.
The lawmaker further stated that if Tinubu has not Islamized his wife, Oluremi Tinubu, he would not do the same to Nigerians.
Faleke said, “What is important is that when we are seated here, we don’t bother as to Christians should sit here and Muslims should sit on the other side and when we board a plane we don’t bother to ask whether the pilot is a Muslim or Christian likewise when we go to markets; we don’t care from whom we are buying.
“So what we are saying is we brought people of pedigree. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has the pedigree and wire withal and had never discriminated against Christians or even a tribe.
“I am a living example; I am a Christian and I am representing him directly. When it comes to the tribe, I am not from Lagos; I am from Kogi State; so he is the type of person we want.
“If you talk about religion, if Asiwaju has not Islamised his wife; we don’t see how he can Islamise Nigeria. His wife is not only a Christian; he even allowed the wife to grow to become a pastor.
“If there is no enabling environment for her in the home she won’t become a pastor. Those are the issues we should talk about. Asiwaju was the one who handed over the missionary school in Lagos to the owners when he came on board, so you can imagine all those issues.”
