Former Niger State governor, Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu said the Muslim-Muslim ticket pushed by the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Ahemed Tinubu is capable of causing disunity in Nigeria.
Dr. Babangida Aliyu, who was speaking when the Peoples Democratic Party campaign group paid him a courtesy call, urged Nigerians to reject such an arrangement in the 2023 general elections.
“As a nationalist, and a Muslem, such is a sentiment that would encourage divide and rule without a sense of reasoning and respect for Christians and pleaded with all well meaning Nigerians to reject the same faith ticket in its entirety.
“As a Muslim, I would not have thought of voting for anything like Christian/Christian ticket and I wondered why the ruling party would ever conceive what they would not take if presented to any of them individually or collectively”
“And, anybody who is supporting same faith ticket, be it Muslim or Christian, does not mean well for Nigeria because doing so only amounts to promoting; injustice, lack of fairness and equity for adherents of other religions,” he said.
