The Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has urged Christians in Nigeria not to worry about the faith of the running mate of Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, because his wife, Remi, is a pastor.
Kalu, who is seeking to return to the Senate, was reacting to the objections of the Christian Association of Nigeria to political parties presenting a Muslim-Muslim ticket as being speculated.
According to Daily Trust, Kalu addressed journalists at the National Assembly on Wednesday.
He said, “Let me tell you, in my house, my wife is the head of the house in reality. Even you men that are here now, that your wives aren’t here, they are the head. Like if I wear this clothe, my wife will tell me ‘My dear, this clothe is not good, remove it’. Your wife will tell you you are supposed to eat Akara and Akamu, whether you argue with her, you must take that Akamu. Your wife want you to pay children school fees, whether you argue or not, you must pay.
“The Christians should relax because Tinubu’s wife is a pastor and once she’s a pastor we are protected because she’s not a housewife. She has political knowledge.”
Remi Tinubu was ordained an Assistant Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in 2018.
