The Edo ex-governor described the position of critics to the emergence of Senator Kaskim Shettima as Tiubu’s running mate as blackmail.
“Those leading the campaign in the APC family – if they were such believers in Christianity – had the opportunity to canvass for votes for one of the Christian candidates.
“But they were on record as having led the on the side of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, knowing very well that he is a Muslim,” he claimed.
The former labour leader stated that Nigerian challenges are beyond religion.
“The issues we have to spend time discussing is what will any of the presidential candidates do differently, not what will a Christian or Muslim do,” he said.
Oshiomhole also faulted claims that Christians were being persecuted, saying there was no evidence of such.
