The Northern Elders Forum, NEF, has enumerated three things that would happen to the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu for settling for a Muslim-Muslim ticket in 2023.
Tinubu had settled for former governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima as his running mate.
However, NEF spokesman Hakeem Baba-Ahmed said Christians would walk away from Tinubu’s ticket in 2023.
Baba-Ahmed predicted that Muslims would support him in the 2023 elections.
In a series of tweet, the NEF spokesman, however, pointed out that opting for a Muslim-Muslim ticket won’t have any impact on Tinubu’s chances of winning the election.
In his words:
“Now that BAT has decided on Muslim-Muslim, 3 things are possible: All Christians will walk away from his ticket.
“All Muslims will line up behind his ticket.
“It will not make any difference to his electoral fortunes. Are the faiths of our leaders that important to how they lead?”
