The argument against a northern Christian running mate for the All Progressive Congress presidential candidate Bola Tinubu is nothing but hogwash, according to a former speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.
Dogara spoke on Friday at the APC Northern Christian Leaders Summit. Dogara described the situation as hogwash to assert that no Christian is competent to be Tinubu’s running mate and said the ticket would only create disunity in the party and the country at large.
Fatal error of judgment
“I do not want to speak to the argument that there is no Christian competent enough to be vice-president because as we all know, that is hogwash. As long as God remains the God of justice, may we continue to resist injustice to our sinews, no matter who is for or against it because it is the requirement of the just God.
“Let us go out from this summit with the resolve to seek out our Muslim brothers and sisters who believe in unifying our people in order to usher in the much need peace and advancement for Nigeria to unleash her true potentials.
“I am sure we will jointly agree on a platform that would advance our collective search for unity, peace and development. Believe me, the only alternative is the road to Yugoslavia.
“God forbid! If we want to see Nigeria exalted, we must insist she does the right things.”
