APC Presidential candidate Tinubu has come under fire by Nigerians after unveiling Shettima
who is also a muslim as his running mate
Nigerians are against this match, as it means two Muslims will be running the country as against a Muslim-Christian
However, the president of the Borno state branch of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Bishop Mohammed Naga, has hailed Tinubu’s choice
According to Arise news, Bishop Naga in a statement released today July 11, said the Christian community in Borno State
has never had a better deal than under Shettima who was at the helm in the state between 2011 and 2019.
furthermore, Naga, who described Shettima as a compassionate leader, said:
Meanwhile, this will be the first time since 1993 that a major party will pull a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket
The last being Social Democratic Party’s MKO Abiola and Babagana Kingibe.
Now the question remains, will Nigeria be willing to accept a Muslim-Muslim Presidency?
Because whether you like it or not this country is still very much enmeshed into religion
And the Christians would also want their person on the presidential seat
All the same, we will keep watch as all the drama unfolds.
