Remi Tinubu, Bola Tinubu’s wife and the APC’s presidential candidate, has hinted to a Christian-Christian ticket.

The APC Muslim-Muslim ticket, according to Mrs. Tinubu, will serve as a model for an all-Christian ticket after 2023.

She said this yesterday in Lagos at the APC South-West women’s presidential rally.

APC chose a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket despite widespread opposition from Nigerians.

As his running companion, Muslim from the Southwest Tinubu selected Kashim Shettima, a former governor of Borno State.

Tinubu’s decision led to some eminent APC members like a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara dumping the party for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Also, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal and some Christians in APC had voiced their displeasure over Tinubu’s choice of Shettima as a running mate.

However, speaking during the rally, Mrs Tinubu said: “As regards the Muslim-Muslim ticket, this one will set the tone for the future. Sometime in the future, we will have a Christian-only ticket. What God has done in our land is marvellous.

“We thank you for coming out in large numbers despite the challenges. My coming here is another homecoming. About 23 years ago, God blessed my husband to become the governor, and I supported him as the first lady.

“I want to thank the people of Lagos Central for sending me to represent them. I am the first woman to emerge as a Senator three times. This is a fantastic opportunity, and I have been working for the good of our people since 2007 when my husband left office.”
