Muslim-Muslim: Your defeat is certain — Lawal tells Tinubu

Former secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, has said Tinubu should be ready for betrayals in the next presidential as many would turn against him including himself, over the party's same fate ticket.

Lawal who said this in an interview on Arise TV on Wednesday, while reacting to the final list of presidential and national assembly candidates for the 2023 general election released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), insists that Christian politicians in the North will see to it that Tinubu loses the election. 

He said: “The introduction of a Muslim-Muslim ticket by the APC or same faith ticket is a wicked plan to further create divisions within the north. We try as leaders of societies to live as brothers and sisters but out of the blues, but this demonic proposition just came out of the blues.

“For all lovers of unity in this country, in the north in particular where we are most affected this ticket must never succeed. And we will make sure we defeat it in such a resounding manner that nobody in his right senses will ever think about it again at least in the near future for our political journey in Nigeria. So we are set on it and we are determined to kill it( Muslim-Muslim ticket). Our people are mobilised, and our people are ready for the election.

“I and Dogara alone aren’t the only ones involved in this. Indeed, we are leaders of groups of about 40 leading Christian politicians in the north. We started work on this years back when we suspected that if a Muslim emerge from the south as the candidate for any of the political parties there is a risk of what has happened will happen.

“So, while we plan that the same faith ticket of APC should fail, we also believe that we should align with one of the leading political parties that has the chance of wining. Our strategy is we will not just waste our vote because we want to protest the same faith ticket of APC, we will like to partner with another group that is more sensible of the Nigerian situation and realised that Nigeria needs harmony, unity and peace.”
