The Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu, has informed the Christian Association of Nigeria and followers that they should rest their worries over Muslim-Muslim ticket since the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu’s is a Christian and pastor.
There have been reactions across board over the possibility of Tinubu running a Muslim-Muslim ticket in the 2023 presidential election.
The Christian Association of Nigeria had warned against any attempt to field a Muslim as Tinubu’s running mate.
Reacting to this, Kalu said that Muslim-Muslim ticket should not threaten Christians.
Addressing journalists at the National Assembly on Wednesday, the Senate Chief Whip said: “Let me tell you, in my house, my wife is the head of the house in reality. Even you men that are here, know that your wives aren’t here, they are the head.
“Like, if I wear these clothes, my wife will tell me, ‘My dear, these clothes are not good, remove them’. Your wife will tell you you are supposed to eat Akara and Akamu, whether you argue with her, you must take that Akamu. If your wife wants you to pay children’s school fees, whether you argue or not, you must pay.
“The Christians should relax because Tinubu’s wife is a pastor and once she’s a pastor we are protected because she’s not a housewife. She has political knowledge.”
