Nigerians on social media have said Vice President Yemi Osinbajo declared for president the same week in history Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus Christ.
According to them, Osinbajo being a protege of presidential hopeful, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is enough reason for him not to declare such ambition because it will pit him against his political godfather.
One @JideSGroup said on Twitter, “This is the week that Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus Christ in the Christian calendar. That this declaration is coming this same week is not a mere coincidence. May God be with Tinubu in Pilates’ Court when he shall face the Peoples verdict on whether to pardon him or nail him.”
@StaunchieCallie said, “Osibanjo Declares for President!!! WHAT A WEEK TO DECLARE! Same week that Judas betrayed Jesus…”
@WESTCURATOR_ said, “Osinbajo declare to run for President the same month, the Same week, the same day, that Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus Christ.”
Meanwhile, Tinubu on Monday met with 17 governors on the Platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Shortly after the meeting, the former governor of Lagos State addressed newsmen who asked him about Osinbajo’s declaration for the presidency.
One journalist asked, saying, “Your son has just declared for the presidency. What do you think?”
“I have no son grown enough to declare,” Tinubu replied.
