Insult to Nigerians: My father owes nobody apology for running Muslim-Muslim ticket- Tinubu’s son

Social sharing

As dust for Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressive Congress-APC Presidential Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has refused to settle, Seyi Tinubu, one of the sons of the ruling APC candidate has added sore to injury as his comment over his father’s choice of another Muslim like him to preside over the affairs of Nigeria is seen by many Nigerians as insulting and inflammatory.

The young Tinubu said: “…my father has made his choice and he absolutely owes nobody an explanation whatsoever on the choice of his running mate”.

Where candidates on political campaigns supposed to be soft in their quest for votes, Tinubu’s is already proving to the masses that APC doesn’t need Nigerians to win 2023, and in the eyes of many, Seyi’s statement is a clear indication that APC is in the threshold to handover the country to a dictator who will owe nobody any apology in the event of any public outcry.

Seyi’s statement which is also viewed by progressive Nigerians and in 9NEWS NIGERIA news room as insulting to the all electoral doctrines and principle of democracy may inadvertently demarket the octogenarian candidate of the ruling APC the more.

Read below the full comment of Seyi Tinubu:

“One thing Nigerians failed to understand is that it is only the Party Presidential flag bearer has the right to choose whosoever he deems fit as his running mate and my father has made his choice in the person of Senator Kashim Shettima.

“Muslim-Muslim ticket is not an issue here and shouldn’t be because what Nigerians need is a leader with a large heart who can deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.

“These are two individuals who has good track records of good leadership right from their respective states as former Governors and have volunteered themselves to steer the leadership boat of this country. What they should expect from is not criticisms but encouragement to enable them deliver good leadership when they must have taken over come 2023.

“Besides my father has made his choice and he absolutely owes nobody an explanation whatsoever on the choice of his running mate. Nigerians should always learn to do away with religion politics because this time around it’s not going to work. All we want is good leaders and here are two individuals from different ethnic groups who have come to take us to the next level. Religion does not matter anymore in Nigerian politics. We have passed that era, now we are progressive and I urge everyone to join this moving train.”
