The Bola Tinubu Campaign Organisation has revealed that some of those parading as leaders of Christian communities in the North have little or no influence on the pattern of voting in their areas.

Festus Keyamo, a leading member of the Campaign Organisation, vehemently opposed any move to make faith related issues the foundation of the 2023 election.

Speaking on Politics Today on Sunday, the Senior Advocate of Nigeria said that some of those who were grandstanding  as Christian leaders and holding meetings in Abuja are not politically on ground.

He revealed that some of them, including two Northetn Christians who served as Secretaries to the Government of the Federation, could not win their power bases even though their communities have strong Christian presence.

Arguing that Nigerians are looking forward to an issue driven campaign, Keyamo said the APC will campaign on the basis of Tinubu’s previous antecedents.

He said despite the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari will not be on the ballot, the APC has established political structures that will deliver its candidates nationwide.

Keyamo  stated that most Nigerians are aware that the leadership quality of the APC’s presidential flagbearer has brought change, stability, economic growth and development to Lagos.

According to him, no political party has won Lagos since the emergence of Tinubu as leader of Nigerian Progressives.

He said given the fact that most voters in 2023 will be youths, his party would take time to enlighten  young Nigerians, some of who are voting for the first, on the contributions to national development of the Lagos strongman.

Keyamo observed that the 2023 general election is not about statistics being bandied around by one of the candidates or the ethnic appeals that is linked with another largely tribalised candidate who is masquerading as a nationalist and a unifier.


He accused the press of being responsible for some of the misconceptions that are taking place in the polity.
