Pastor Adeboye Rechristened Me Abraham, Called Me Father Of Nations — Tinubu

The presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu, has shed light on his relationship with the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.

While speaking with the Kano chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, on Monday, former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu disclosed that the RCCG general overseer christened him “Abraham”

“The day my wife was ordained a pastor, I was there. Pastor Adeboye gave me the name Abraham,” Tinubu said. “I said what’s the meaning? He said the father of the nation.”

Kemi Filani recalls that Tinubu’s choice of a Muslim running mate in the person of former Borno State governor Kashim Shettima has been met with criticisms from Christians, with many accusing the ruling APC of an agenda to Islamise Nigeria.

Lawan Babachir, a Tinubu ally, and APC chieftain had threatened that Christians will vote against the APC, describing the same faith ticket as “satanic.”

Few months ago, an online news portal, Peoples Gazette had reported that the State Security Service in a secret memo to President Muhammadu Buhari warned that Tinubu’s choice of vice-presidential candidate for the 2023 presidential election would trigger a sectarian crisis that could destabilize Nigeria.
