10th NASS Leadership: Muslim Senate President, Speaker will confirm APC’s Islamization agenda – Obun
Installing Muslim leaders in the 10th National Assembly, according to Cletus Obun of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, would support the ruling party's agenda of islamization.
According to him, the party must exercise caution when appointing a Christian from the South as president.
This was revealed by Obun on Tuesday during an interview with Arise Television that the Naijacrawl watched.
He claimed that it would be prudent and morally acceptable for a Christian to serve as the leader of the National Assembly given that the President-elect and Vice President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kasim Shettima, are both Muslims.
As the ninth Assembly comes to an end, National Assembly members have kept up their competition for the Speakership and Senate Presidency of the country's legislative body.
“No matter how you play the ostrich on the matter of religion and tribe, you will agree with me that APC had a challenge with the 2023 elections due to the Muslim-Muslim ticket; we cannot exacerbate that crisis with the leadership of the National Assembly being ruled by the same religion." "It will confirm to the Christian population that the Islamization agenda has been completed," he stated.
