The Vice President-elect, Kashim Shettima, has refuted the allegation that the incoming administration is planning to Islamise the country.

Shettima who dismissed the alleged plot at the inaugural lecture of the incoming government in Abuja on Saturday stated that the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, who has not been able to Islamise his family cannot do that with Nigeria.

Elaborating on the Muslim-Muslim ticket adopted by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Shettima disclosed that he deliberately chose an Igbo man who happens to be a Catholic as his aide de camp to promote unity.

“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 shared.
