Keyamo: Christians will support APC Muslim-Muslim ticket
The spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, has expressed optimism that the party would get nationwide support in the forthcoming presidential election despite its same-faith ticket.
Keyamo, who stated this in an interview with Punch, boasted that the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, would win next month’s election with the support of Muslims and Christians.
He said Nigerians were more interested in capacity and competence over religious and tribal sentiments, adding that Tinubu is the best among the candidates for the February presidential poll.
Keyamo said, “I believe so much that we have both Christians and Muslims support because people are no longer looking at religion but competence and capability and Tinubu is the only one that has that. We are confident that we will win this election with the support of all religions.”
Speaking further on the controversy surrounding the health condition of the APC presidential candidate, the APC PCC spokesman said, “On the health condition of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, there is no basis for it at all.
“Asiwaju has been more active than everybody on the campaign. We want to also ask; what is the basis for this suspicion? Has Asiwaju at any time collapsed in public? Did he at any time show any sign of ill-health?
“The only time as far as I can remember is when he went for a knee cap operation, which is just to strengthen him the more and after then he has been bouncing all over the place. You can see him climbing chairs going up and down.
“So, the issue of health is not a factor against him. If it is against him, which means it will also be against Atiku, who also went for treatment recently in Dubai.”
