The consideration of a Muslim President and a Muslim Vice President for the forthcoming presidential election 2023, is not a good idea.

A Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation of Nigeria, Babachir Lawal, has warned the All Progressive Congress against picking a Muslim as running mate to it’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who is also a Muslim.

According to Lawal who is an ally of Tinubu, a political party is in the business of winning elections, and to win elections, one must get the vote to beat the opponent.

He stressed the need for the party to make the necessary considerations before choosing its vice president ahead of the coming polls.

“The religious divide has increased, the tribal division has increased, the regional division has increased,” said the former SGF. “So, it will be a good thing if APC will settle for a Muslim-Christian ticket because we know the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), that is what they will do.”

When ssked if he would like to be Tinubu’s running mate, he said, “God has not told me to aspire for that position. If you reach the level of Christianity that I am, you should be able to seek God’s opinion on everything that you do and get the indication.

“I will consider it. I have been in government before, and I have not seen any personal merit or advantage to me begin government. since I left government. I have had a very good life and basically, a businessperson and I have lived well. I am happy, my children are happy,” he said.
