The Muslim/Muslim ticket for the APC Presidential Candidate has been described as “ungodly and against the unity of the country.”
The disclosure was made by former Speaker of Federal House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, during the 12th General Assembly and Leadership Transition Ceremony of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), when he said the position of CAN on the same-faith ticket is a Godly position and, anything contrary to that, is ungodly.
“I want to say emphatically that, CAN’s position on Muslim/Muslim ticket in this country, at this moment of national peril, is not CAN’s only position, I believe that is God’s position.
He stated thus: “We serve a God of justice; our God is righteous, our God is the author of diversity, and He wants as diverse as we are to come together.
“CAN’s position as much as it is a righteous position, it is the position of all of us, who want to live a life of righteousness, justice, diversity and are working to harness it for the advancement of this country.”
Hon. Dogara noted that, “There is no neutrality in an issue like this. Those, who support the Muslim/Muslim tickets, are working against the unity of Nigeria.”
The former Speaker also pointed out that, “Anybody can say anything, but in as much as what we are standing for is Godly, any other position is ungodly. There is no middle way; you can’t be in the middle. It is either you are for righteousness, justice, inclusivity or you are working against the unity of this great country.”
