Ahead of Monday’s inauguration, the Vice President-elect, Kashim Shettima, dismissed claims that the incoming administration of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will Islamise Nigeria.
Shettima made this clarification on Saturday while speaking at the inaugural lecture of the incoming administration in Abuja.
He stressed that president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who has not Islamised his family, cannot Islamize Nigeria.
According to him, his candidacy with Tinubu is backed by necessity.
He explained that to prove his religious tolerance, he chose a Christian as his Aide De Camp.
“I was a child of necessity, there is no Islamisation agenda. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a Muslim who is married to a Christian, not only a Christian but a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
“Someone who has not Islamised his family, people are alluding that he has the intention to Islamise the nation.
“Politics is about perception. As we begin the formation of a new administration, I deliberately picked an Igbo man, a Catholic, to be my chief security officer.
“For the purpose of inclusivity and togetherness, again I deliberately picked a northern Christian to be my ADC. So the so-called founder of Boko Haram is going to be protected by….”, he stated.
