    A former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Babachir Lawal has once again faulted the position of Bola Tinubu on the Muslim-Muslim ticket.

    Reacting to the final submission of former Borno State Governor, Kashim Shittima as the running mate of Tinubu, Lawal in a fresh statement on Saturday said the former Lagos Governor has thrown down the gauntlet.

    He said Tinubu’s position affirms that he only requires Muslim votes to be president and for all he cares, the Christians can all go to hell with their votes.

    According to  Lawal, the God of justice and equity through the Nigerian voters will decide the victor between the Nigerian Christians, Tinubu and APC.

    The statement reads: “I did say it: those the gods want to destroy they first make mad.

    “Tinubu has thrown down the gauntlet. He has submitted Alhaji Kashim Shettima as his nominee. He has stood by his affirmation that he only requires Muslim votes to be President and for all he cares, Christians can all go to hell with their votes.

    “This is his position and he has a right to it. I concede to him.

    “We have picked up this gauntlet. The God of justice and equity through the Nigerian voters will decide the victor between the Nigerian Christians, Alhaji Tinubu and his party, the APC.

    “This is our country and we will not let Alhaji Ahmed Bola Tinubu relegate us, our children and our religion to second-class status in our own country.

    “For us, this is an existential crisis. Our rights to justice and peaceful co-existence with all practitioners of other religions are under threat.

    “A northern Nigerian Christian child deserves to be bequeathed a future in which he can aspire to be President or Vice President of Nigeria.

    “The Bible supports our position and the Nigerian Constitution supports and even guarantees it.

    “Come on Alhaji Tinubu! Come on APC!

    “Again, ‘to your tents o Israel.’ The Bible records a time like this in history:

    “1 Chronicles 12: 32: ‘From the tribe of Issachar, there were 200 leaders of the tribe with their relatives. All these men understood the signs of the times and knew the best course for Israel to take.”
