Veteran Nigerian stand-up comedian, cum actor, Atunyota Alleluya Akpobome, professionally known as Ali Baba, has criticized the Vice President, Kashim Shettima, over disrespect for Christians.
Naija News reports that Ali Baba took to his Instagram page to share a photo collage of Shettima at a church event alongside Muslims observing their prayer.
In the photos, the former Borno State Governor was captured wearing a cap while other political elites beside him removed their hats.
According to the comedian, respecting people’s beliefs, rituals, and observations is essential when they enter a place considered holy; however, the vice president acted otherwise.
He captioned the photo: “When you enter a place considered holy or sacred by a people, you respect their beliefs, rituals, and observations… thats how it done.
“You do it to honour who your hosts are. But then again.”
Meanwhile, Vice President Kashim Shettima has said international cooperation is needed to tackle the challenges facing the world.
A statement on Saturday by his spokesman, Olusola Abiola, said Shettima spoke while addressing world leaders at the ongoing G77+China leaders’ summit in Cuba.
Shettima said the tension in some parts of the world must not be allowed to prevent countries from forging a mutually beneficial path to progress.
