Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) flagbearer in 2023 election, has met with some religious groups in Abuja.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate posted the pictures of the meeting on his Twitter account on Thursday evening.
A short statement on twitter site by him said, “Earlier today at a lively, productive and amiable meeting with a delegation representing the Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria.
“We discussed important issues of national significance as well as my determination to deliver unity, harmony and lasting peace to Nigeria.”
Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu is a Muslim from Lagos State, South West Nigeria who chose former governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima as his running mate in June.
Opposition to the ticket is still on with various religious leaders in the North pulling out of his campaign team and renouncing membership of the party.
While no official statement has been issued yet, sources from the meeting said Tinubu promised fairness to all Nigerians.
He was said to have defended the ticket as Shettima was chosen based on competence.
He said no religious consideration was used to choose Shettima as competence is needed to attack and solve the challenges confronting the country.
