Rev. Fr. Chinenye John Oluoma has declared that the Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was never meant to Islamize Nigeria but to gather votes.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was criticized after nominating fellow Muslim Kashim Shettima as his running mate.
However, the priest of the Catholic Archdiocese of Abuja faulted some of the critics of the Muslim-Muslim ticket who went ahead to support Atiku Abubakar and dumped Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the election.
The clergyman added that those critics preferred President Muhammadu Buhari, a Fulani Muslim and northerner, to hand over to another Fulani Muslim and northerner.
Oluoma urged the people not to allow the APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket to blind them from bigger issues because the same faith ticket is mere “a symptom”.
His words: “APC didn’t adopt a Muslim-Muslim ticket to Islamize Nigeria; let no one deceive you into thinking that. They did it to get votes. If you are a Christian and you think your problem is a Muslim, or vice versa, you don’t have insight, you have sight”.
