Atiku to Tinubu ‘Church rat, poisoned holy communion’ comment offensive, out of context. The All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate for president, Bola Tinubu, has come under fire for his remark that “the church rat and poisoned holy communion” was made, according to the presidential campaign spokesperson for Atiku Abubakar, Daniel Bwala.
Remember how Tinubu portrayed climate change as “a matter of how do you prevent a church rat from consuming poisoned holy communion” when answering questions about it at the Arewa Interactive Committee on Monday in Kaduna?
“We live in an impoverished country. Firewood is supposedly not for grabbing. They claim that we must plant more trees yet they are not providing us with funding.
“We need to warn the West that we won’t comply with your climate change if you don’t guarantee our money and cooperate with us to halt this,” Tinubu added.
However, in response to Tinubu’s assertion on climate change, Bwala said that his remark was rude and out of context.
While appearing on the Arise Tv Morning Show, he revealed this.
He was completely out of context when he made the ‘church rat’ remark, Bwala claimed. It was insulting. It would have been preferable if he had used a metaphor that the audience could relate to.
However, the international conference on climate change is considering a balance in terms of contextual interpretation.
“The one-point-something emission limit that you are referring to is only applicable to developed nations.
That means you can’t combine what Asiwaju stated with that. It’s entirely, totally out of sequence.
