Most Revered Matthew Ndagoso, the Catholic Archbishop of Kaduna, has cautioned Nigerians against voting for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Bishop Ndagoso made this known while reacting to the Muslim-Muslim ticket presented by the APC.
Recall that Bola Tinubu, a Muslim and presidential candidate of the APC, had picked Senator Kashim Shettima, a northern Muslim, as his running mate.
While Tinubu said his action was based on Shettima’s experience and wealth of knowledge, the revered catholic bishop said the action signifies the APC flagbearer’s inability to harness Nigeria’s religious diversity.
“Nigeria is a very diverse country, we come from different cultural backgrounds, religious backgrounds, and social backgrounds and our diversities are not a curse; they are blessings from God,” the bishop said.
“All we need are leaders who will be able to manage and harness these diversities as to enrich our country. Therefore, the kind of leader Nigeria needs is somebody who has the ability to manage our differences and bring everybody together and give everyone a sense of belonging.”
Meanwhile, Pastor William Kumuyi, general overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, has said that he would not recommend any presidential candidate for the 2023 elections.
He charged Christians to depend on God to pick the right individual that would lead Nigeria to greater heights.
