Muslim-Muslim: God will judge between Christians, Tinubu

Babachir Lawal, Tinubu, Christians

Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, has said God will judge between Christians and the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

He said this while lamenting Tinubu’s decision to stick with his Muslim-Muslim ticket which has running mate Kashim Shettima, despite calls for him to pick a Christian instead.

According to a statement by Lawal, Tinubu’s decision threatens Christians living in the north and their existence.

He wrote, “I did say it: those the gods want to destroy they first make mad.

“Tinubu has thrown down the gauntlet. He has submitted Alhaji Kashim Shetima as his nominee. He has stood by his affirmation that he only requires Moslem votes to be President and for all he cares, Christians can all go to hell with their votes.

“This is his position and he has a right to it. I concede to him.

“We have picked up this gauntlet. The God of justice and equity through the Nigerian voters will decide the victor between the Nigerian Christians, Alhaji Tinubu and his party, the APC.

“This is our country and we will not let Alhaji Ahmed Bola Tinubu relegate us, our children and our religion to second-class status in our own country.

“For us, this is an existential crisis. Our rights to justice and peaceful co-existence with all practitioners of other religions is under threat.

“A northern Nigerian Christian child deserves to be bequeathed a future in which he can aspire to be President or Vice President of Nigeria.

“The Bible supports our position and the Nigerian Constitution supports and even guarantees it.

“Come on Alhaji Tinubu! Come on APC!

“Again, ‘to your tents o Israel.’ The Bible records a time like this in history:

“1 Chronicles 12: 32: ‘From the tribe of Issachar, there were 200 leaders of the tribe with their relatives. All these men understood the signs of the times and knew the best course for Israel to take,”.
