A former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has condemned the Muslim/Muslim presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Dogara who described God as a God of justice stated that the Almighty is against the agenda of the ruling party in 2023.
He further stated that the stand of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on the Muslim/Muslim ticket is godly.
Dogara stated this on Wednesday while speaking during a symposium on the leadership crises in Nigeria, which was held in Abuja.
The programme was part of activities marking the 12th General Assembly of CAN.
Dogara said, “I want to say emphatically that CAN’s position on the Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket in this country, at this moment of national peril, is not just CAN’s or that of Babachir Lawal, whom many have accused of being the only one who has turned it into an issue.
“I believe it (the rejection of same-faith ticket) is also the Almighty’s position because we serve a God of justice. He is the righteous one as well as the author of diversity, and he wants us, as diverse as we are, to come together.
“So, CAN’s stance is the position of all of us (Christian political leaders) who love righteousness, justice as well as diversity and are working to harness these for the advancement of this country.
“In as much as what we are fighting for is a godly position, every other position is ungodly. There’s no middle way. It is either you are for righteousness, justice and inclusivity or you are working against the unity of this great country.”
