A member of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Tomide Akinribido has charged Christians to protect Vice President Osinbajo for “refusing” to be part of Bola Tinubu’s campaign council.


The name of the VP was missing from the list of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC).


The PCC said President Muhammadu Buhari directed that Osinbajo and Federal Government’s Secretary, Boss Mustapha, be left out.


The spokesman, Festus Keyamo explained that this was to ensure they were not distracted from governance.


In his posts on Twitter, Akinribido suggested that the ruling APC was engaging in a cover-up of the true situation because of the backlash over its same faith ticket.


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain said it was amazing that the two top government officials Buhari excused are Christians.


“Is it a coincidence that the top two Christians in the government and party hierarchy, Vice-President and SGF, are excluded from the campaign council of a rejected Muslim-Muslim ticket?


“The Christian community must stand in solidarity with Osinbajo and reject the disastrous APC Muslim-Muslim ticket.


“It takes enormous courage for him to decline participation in the Tinubu campaign council, he must be protected at all cost.


“VP Osinbajo was approached to play a prominent role in the APC campaign team, especially among the Christian community.


“He declined and stated that he cannot do such in good conscience. Whether Laolu Akande debunks this does not matter. Prof himself knows this is the truth”, Akinribido wrote.
