Citing Osun state example, Kwara state based prominent Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ibrahim Danmaigoro, Monday justified the Muslim- Muslim presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The popular cleric said the recent election of two Christians as governor and deputy governor in Osun state was an attestation to the propriety of the Muslim- Muslim presidential ticket of the APC.
The cleric made this assertion during a prayer session for the state governor, AbdulRahaman AbdulRazaq, Monday.
The prayer session was at the instance of Alhaji AbdulHameed Sambo- a former ally of the immediate past Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki.
Danmaigoro noted that the people of Osun state jettisoned religious sentiments by voting for the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDPs) Christian- Christian ticket in the governorship election.
“If there is nothing wrong in the people of Osun state voting for the PDP’s Christian-Christian ticket, then there is nothing wrong in Nigerians supporting the presidential candidate of the APC and his running mate, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Kassim Shettima who are both Muslims.
“What should be paramount in the minds of Nigerians is the election of capable hand as the nation’s next president and Tinubu has all it takes to make Nigeria great again,” the cleric said.
Though, the event was meant to mark the birthday of a former commissioner at Kwara state Independent Electoral Commision (KWSIEC), Alhaji AbdulHameed Sambo, it was turned to a prayer ground for both Governor AbdulRazaq and Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu.
