Don’t worry about Muslim-Muslim ticket, there are other options – Bishop Kukah

Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah, has said those who are aggrieved by the decision by the All Progressives Congress, APC, to present Muslim-Muslim ticket for the 2023 presidential election have other options. 

In a statement he personally signed yesterday, Kukah said the decision by the APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to pick Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate should not be a thing to worry about.

Tinubu on Sunday, announced the former Borno State Governor as his running mate for the 2023 presidential election.

The development has continued to generate reactions from concerned Nigerians who argued that a northern Christian should have been picked instead of Shettima.

But Kukah, while reacting, said those angered by the development should support other candidates they feel are better.

The statement reads, “This is what you call team selection and everybody will choose depending on what they think will give them a fair chance. So people will take responsibility for the choices they have made. For me, it is not something to lose sleep over.

“If people feel unhappy with the kind of choices that have been made, that is why we are democrats, you can’t force it. We outsiders cannot force a choice of any candidate.

“It is now left for you to look at the choices that have been made. And there is no guarantee that all Christians will vote for Christians and all Muslims will vote for Muslims.”
