Tinubu, wife meet CAN in Abuja

Bola Tinubu

Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu on Wednesday afternoon arrived at the Christian Ecumenical Centre, Abuja for a meeting with the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

The meeting is the second leg of an interactive session with the 2023 presidential candidates organised by the apex Christian body in Abuja.

Tinubu arrived with his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma; Ebonyi State Governor Dave Umahi and Senator Smart Adeyemi among others.

Tinubu had selected former governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, as his running mate.

However, his decision to pick a Muslim like himself was met with criticisms from CAN and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, led by Bishop Wale Oke.

Also expected at the dialogue with CAN are the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar; and the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
