As the All Progressives Congress APC flagbearer, Bola Tinubu picked a Muslim-Muslim ticket ahead of the 2023 general elections, his presidential bid may be under threat.

This is as a result of him failing to get the support of all 19 northern states in the country

Reports indicate that the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the 19 northern states of the federation and including the FCT has reiterated their commitment not to support the Tinubu.

The CAN secretary-general, Sunday Oibe in Kaduna State affirmed this in a statement and released to the media.

In the statement, CAN hinted that it will not be supporting the Tinubu-Shettima ticket adopted by the APC ahead of the 2023 presidential polls.

He, however, warned against any attempt of any politician trying to monetarily induce the association all in the name to get them to support the presidential bid of the duo (Tinubu-Shettima).
