An alleged Impostor who identified himself as Joseph Odaudu has sensationally narrated how he was hired alongside a few others allegedly by members of the campaign organization of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to attend the unveiling of his running mate, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, on Wednesday in Abuja in support of a Muslim-Muslim ticket in the 2023 presidential election.
The purported cleric reportedly confessed to have been offered a sum of N100, 000 for the shady job allegedly by Tinubu’s hirelings amidst mounting opposition to the selection of Shettima, a Muslim just as Tinubu as his running mate.
Odaudu reportedly spilled the bean after he was allegedly shortchanged and eventually handed a sum of N40, 000 far below the amount he had been promised for the Job.
A group of purported Christian clerics in cassocks had filed out at the event to give a false impression that the Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket presented by the APC was in the national interest which has the support of the Christian community.
“They came to meet us at the car park behind Eagle Square and they promised to give me N100, 000. They bought food for us and took us to another place where they gave us clothes to dress like Christian leaders and reverend fathers,”
“But after we finished they only gave me N40, 000 and another person said they got only N30,000. I don’t know why they changed our agreement because they said they had N100, 000 for us”, Odaudu told The Peoples Gazette after the event on Wednesday.
“I am a Christian and I am supporting Tinubu but I hate when people lie and fail to deliver on their promises,” he added.
When asked if he knew that it was illegal to disguise as a Catholic bishop, Odaudu insisted he didn’t break any laws.
“No law was broken we only tried to show Nigerians that Christians are solidly behind Asiwaju Tinubu,”
The Catholic Church had described those who appeared at the event held at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja as “impostors”. The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, had also kicked against the choice of a Muslim-Muslim ticket presented by the APC for the 2023 presidential election.
