“Christians By Mouth, Devil In Heart”– Oshiomhole Blast Babachir Lawal Over Comment On Tinubu-Shettima Ticket
Adams Oshiomhole, a former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has reacted to comments made by a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal, over the party’s Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.
Oshiomhole said Nigerians should differentiate between a Christian by mouth and a devil by heart.
He wondered why Lawal, who was involved in a grass-cutting scandal, could talk against APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.
Appearing on Arise TV on Wednesday, Oshiomhole explained that the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu was a better Christian.
He made it known that Tinubu has been married to a Christian for almost 40 years with children practicing both Christian and Muslim faith.
In his words:
“Evil people who are on record are being prosecuted for misappropriating money that a Muslim president appropriated in favour of Christian children that were displaced and were converted to grass-cutter, have become the new voice of Christianity.
“We must make a distinction between Christian by mouth and devil by heart who want to see Nigeria engulfed in a war nobody can win.
“Who is a better Christian in the Nigerian contest? Somebody like Asiwaju who has a Christian wife of about 40 years with no record of divorce, with four or five children; some are Christians and others Muslim.
“That is an example of what a nation should be.”
Lawal had criticized Tinubu’s decision to pick Kashim Shettima as his running mate.
The former SGF said APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket was a plot to Islamize the country.
Remember that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had prosecuted Lawal along with his younger brother, Hamidu David Lawal over fraud involving grass-cutting.
