Tinubu, Target Of Blasphemous Campaign To Cause Religious War – Campaign Office 

The Tinubu Media Office, has alleged that there’s a deliberate campaign targeted at former governor of Lagos State, Mr Bola Tinubu, to cause religious rift in the country.

According to the media office on Tuesday, the two-time Lagos State governor is a target of blasphemous campaign that’s capable of causing anger against his person.

A statement by TMO said, “The orchestrated set-up of a poster campaign seeking to use a literary application of the Biblical story of Judas Iscariot’s betrayal of Jesus Christ to rope Asiwaju Tinubu into a storm of blasphemy is the most desperate antics of anti-Tinubu propagandists in recent times.”

It pointed out that its investigations have revealed that those who created the offensive poster were the same people who created the counter-campaign alleging blasphemy.

It said by doing that, their design is to use both to provoke anger against the person and aspiration of Tinubu.

“This campaign has failed. This is clearly irresponsible and insensitive political propaganda that seeks to exploit religious sentiments to manipulate public perception against Asiwaju Tinubu, who is ostensibly the most formidable presidential aspirant in this race.”

The statement added that, “It is widely known that Tinubu is married to not just a Christian but an ordained pastor, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, and has developed very deep fraternal relationship with Christendom at all levels, a fact acknowledged by many bishops, pastors and parishioners over the years.

“A known Muslim, Asiwaju in words and actions has demonstrated religious tolerance and accommodation. He believes in that cardinal principle of the Nigerian Constitution that no one should suffer discrimination on the basis of creed or opinion. Besides, as a former governor of Lagos, a state that is a microcosm of Nigeria in terms of religious diversity, his matured management of religion as a way of life, ensured inter-religious harmony in Nigeria’s most industrialised state.

“It is, therefore, impudent to contemplate that a statesman of Asiwaju Tinubu’s standing will condone Biblical allusions that could denigrate his person or status,” the statement added.

It noted that basic facts were ignored by “those desperate to set Muslims against Christians” through deliberate disinformation of the general public.

“While we shall continue to appeal to the Nigerian people to ignore such campaigns of calumny, we reiterate our commitment to prioritise our political communication on the exposition of the truth and dissemination of our point of view with decency and regard to the feelings of Nigerians.”

Tinubu had declared for president early in the year saying he had been a kingmaker and wanted to be the king this time around.

His long time political associate and Vice President, Mr Yemi Osinbajo, few weeks ago equally declared for president, leading to accusation that Osinabjo had bitten the finger that fed him.

Since Osinbajo’s declaration, both camps have alleged “filthy political campaigns” against each other ostensibly due to how close both were. Osinbajo was two-time Commissioner for Justice under the administration of Tinubu in Lagos.

Both are hoping to get the party’s presidential ticket in May when the APC holds its primary election.
