APC’s Muslim-Muslim Ticket Undemocratic, Says Lutheran Church
Shettima and Tinubu

The Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) portends danger for the nation, according to the Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria (LCCN).

In a video posted by AIT on Tuesday, Musa Filibus, archbishop of the LCCN and president of the Lutheran World Federation, made this statement.

The APC’s Bola Tinubu, a Muslim from the south-west running for president, announced Kashim Shettima, a Muslim from the north-east, as his running mate on July 10.

Some Nigerians have since criticized the action, calling it a “injustice” to the Christian community.

Filibus asked the federal government to intensify its efforts in tackling insecurity in the country.

“The present position of the APC no matter how it is explained does not mean well for a nation that is trying to deepen the culture of democracy and democratization process for the good of all people in their diversities,” Filibus said.

“It will be recalled that when this government was elected for its first term that people across all regions and religions were excited and hopeful about the three point agender it committed to address namely: insecurity, corruption and the economy.

“These agenda points gave the citizens some level of assurance that the government is serious to take on the issues that bedevil the nation and further transformed by the inaugural address of the president Muhammadu Buhari GCFR during his swearing in ceremony, where he categorically said “I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody.”

“Regrettably, our nation today is marked by laments rather than the joyful expectations with the government was welcomed.”
