Why we’re no longer opposed to Muslim-Muslim ticket — Christian leaders

Some Christian and Church leaders across Nigeria, under the auspices of the National Solemn Assembly (NaSA) have said that their initial fear over the Muslim-Muslim ticket of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima, has been allayed.

They said their fear was predicated on the possibility of religious subjugation and oppression of Christians in the country.

They made this known yesterday in Abuja at the National Ecumenical Centre, Abuja, during the inauguration of committees and flag off of the national orientation and mobilisation for ‘A day of Praise Worship and Thanksgiving to God for Nigeria’ slated for December across the country.

Chairman of the committee, Archbishop Leonard Kawas, urged all Nigerians, especially Christians to actively participate in the fast and one day intense prayers for the nation, and that a 40-day fast, which would commence on 20 October, 2023, would end on 30 November 2023, a day before the Solemn Assembly.

Prof. Bature who is also the National President, Catholic Charismatic Renewal of Nigeria, said that President Tinubu should be commended for disappointing many who thought that a Muslim/Muslim ticket would set the country on a path of chaos, by ensuring a balance in the appointment of both Christians and Muslims into political offices.

“One of the things that created tension during the last electioneering period was the fact that many Christians in Nigeria were so scared of the idea of a Muslim/Muslim ticket. It brought a lot of fear but as God will have it, that fear has been removed from us. The president and his vice have demonstrated nothing but balance in the kind of political appointments that they have made.

“We have seen that nobody can cry of marginalisation because Muslims have gotten their fair share and Christians have also gotten theirs too. So this is one of the reasons why we must thank God because some people thought a Muslim/Muslim ticket will Islamise Nigeria,” Bature said.
