Reactions Trail  Unveiling Of Kashim Shettima As Bola Tinubu’s Vice. 

By Our Reporter


The Chairman of Chairman of the Tinubu-Shettima Grassroot Mandate for 2023, Ambassador Morgan Okocha, in an interview with our reporter, decried what he called the continuous spread of division amongst Nigerians by some few.


“I was there physically during the unveiling to witness the event. I indeed saw about 30 or thereabout Bishops. The trending news today by detractors say those Bishops are false and fake. This is not supposed to be surprising to us, that the people spreading such information are detractors. They are enemies of progress and people who don’t mean well for Nigerians.” He said.


According to him, “that you are a Bishop of a church does not mean you must be a member of the Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN). It is a thing of choice. You can be a Bishop and decides not to be a member of CAN. You can be a Bishop or Pastor ok your own, once your church is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC).”


Ambassador Morgan added that, “It is not only Catholics that uses the nomenclature of a Bishop. There are Bishops from other churches. It is all about the structure of such church and it’s nomenclature. Some can decide to be called Pastor, Bishop, Reverend, Brother, as it suits their structure.”


He further added that, those who believed that the APC could not come together and manage its success would be terribly disappointed in the end.


“I want to advise Nigerians not be distracted. They should move on with the choice of the people. That man is Tinubu, whom I know very well to be a Patriotic Nigerian. I have no regret following him as a man of the people.”


The controversy over the alleged hiring of bishops and priests by the All Progressives Congress, APC, has continued to spread across the country.


Recall that images of bishops and priests had emerged on social media showing that some bishops and priests attended the unveiling ceremony despite the controversy surrounding the resolve of the APC and its presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to go for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
