A coalition of Christians of Northern extraction in the All Progressives Congress (APC) said they won’t support a Muslim-Muslim ticket, because the forthcoming election will have grave consequences.

While discussing the issues of the APC Muslim Muslim ticket and the implications to the nation, in Abuja on Tuesday, signed by the chairman, prof. Doknan Sheni, and Secretary-General, Ishaya Bauka.

The organisation made this known in a communique “The selection of a Muslim vice presidential candidate portrayed insensitivity to the Christians in the Nation. The fear of the Christians in the north and the nation in general is that the APC party will be viewed as an Islamic party and the Muslim – Muslim ticket was not possible in 2015, why should it be possible in 2023?

“More so, that we are apprehensive that the person picked might have had a hand in the Chibok girls Saga and other terror activities, Muslim-Muslim ticket would undermine the election chances of Christian candidates in the APC in the various states in the North. The Christians in the North and the whole nation are highly aggravated.

“Considering that the Chairman of the party is a Muslim, Deputy Chairman – North, is a Muslim, the President of the Senate is a Muslim, the Speaker and Deputy Speaker are Muslims, and now both the presidential and vice-presidential candidates are Muslims and apart from this violating the constitution, section 14 subsection 3, if this was to be reversed that all these were Christians, can any Muslim in the North be able to sell the APC presidential ticket to any Muslim ummah?

Recall that The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) have earlier asked that their running mates most be Christians. Considering the people’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have Muslim presidential candidates, while the Labour Party has a Christian presidential candidate and a Muslim VP.
