Boko Haram Presidency

Read Time:1 Minute, 24 Second

Lives and properties of Christians not guaranteed under a Muslim-Muslim presidency

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has frowned on the selection of former governor of Borno state, Alhaji Kashim Shettima as the running mate to the ruling party All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Alhaji Ahmed Tinubu. Before Tinubu made his announcement of his Muslim pick on Sunday he disregarded warnings from Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria and Civil Society Organisations against fielding a Muslim-Muslim ticket for the 2023 presidential election.

CAN’s spokesperson, Adebayo Oladeji, said making such a decision in a polarised country was a wrong move in an interview with journalists, Sunday. “If you have a government where a pastor is a vice president and pastors and worshipers are being killed you can imagine what will happen when we have a Muslim-Muslim ticket.” Oladeji stated.

“Nigerians should be ready to face the consequences of their actions if they endorsed and vote for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.” The CAN spokesman warned.

“You are all alive when we warned Buhari not to allow Muslims to dominate the security architecture of the country and he did it. I think we can see the way the criminals are operating with impunity.” Oladeji said pointing to the recent Owo massacre on Pentecost Sunday and the Abuja Kuje prison jailbreak.

“We are raising our alarm. It is an irony that Buhari they regarded as an extremist when we raised an alarm to warn him against a Muslim-Muslim ticket, he heeded and opted for a christian as his vice presidential candidate.” He stressed.
