The Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has drawn criticism from the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Matthew Hassan Kukah.



The ticket, according to Bishop Kukah, is abhorrent and unacceptable.

The Catholic Bishop insisted that the ticket was a setback to the nation's integration in an interview with Channels Television on Thursday.

Bola Tinubu, the APC candidate for president, chose Kashim Shettima as his running mate despite the protests of Nigerians.

Shettima is a Muslim from the North, whereas Tinubu is a Muslim from the Southwest.

Kukah questioned whether Muslims would support a Christian-Christian ticket for president.

He claimed that once the campaign got underway, Nigerians would wait to hear what they had to say.

But moving forward, I have a straightforward query for my Muslim friends, particularly those from northern Nigeria: "Would Muslims in Nigeria or northern Nigeria be ready to make the same concession that Christians made in 1984 and 1993?"

“I think that, as a Christian, this is totally reprehensible." It is not acceptable to me, but that is the decision of the APC as a party. Perhaps, when the campaign starts, we will hear what people have to say. "
