Nigeria too divided to accept your Muslim-Muslim ticket, Reno Omokri tells Tinubu/ Shettima 


Socio-political activist, Reno Omokri has commended the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for meeting Northern Christian bishops.

Recall that the former Lagos State governor had met with some Christian clerics under the aegis of the Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria on Thursday.

At the meeting, Tinubu disclosed that his choice of a former Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, was not a threat to the Christian community.

Reacting, Omokri, in a post on his social media pages, said though the move was commendable, it was too little.

According to him, the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the ruling party may not go well for Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, in the 2023 presidential election.

He wrote, “I commend Bola Tinubu’s inroads into the Northern Christian community by meeting with their bishops. But this is too little. Address your imbalanced ticket. Nigeria is too divided for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

“Christians refuse to be second-class citizens in Nigeria! Look at the situation with Buhari. The head of the Executive is a Muslim (Buhari). The head of the Legislature is a Muslim (Lawan). The head of the Judiciary is also a Muslim (Ariwoola).

“The military and security services are overwhelmingly dominated by Muslims. How does Tinubu want us to go from that to a Muslim President and a Muslim Vice President? That is the height of injustice to the Body of Christ, and we will NEVER accept it!”
