2023: Tinubu/Shettima Muslim-Muslim Ticket Will End In Failure – Dogara
A former Speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has described the adoption of a APC Muslim-Muslim ticket for the 2023 presidential election as a fruitless political effort.
Dogara knocked the APC’s insistence on going to the 2023 presidential poll with a Muslim-Muslim ticket, saying it is bound to end in spectacular failure.
He said, “In their convoluted posturing, they have placed state-building ahead of nation-building; a task never before achieved in history and we need no seer to tell us that such endeavour is guaranteed to end in spectacular failure. No divided people have ever built any civilization
“I am so elated that today’s church in Nigeria has shaken off the beast of the complacency of the past into fire by speaking up and resisting measures adopted by some political platforms that will hamper nation building.
“In a manner that negated the fundamentals of nation building, such as shared identity, values and visions, the APC adopted a same faith ticket in a country that has never attained nationhood.
“I have gone to great lengths to demonstrate that the church must not waste its votes or sow same on unproductive grounds.
“Every Christian must see his vote as talents given to him by God to trade with and as seeds that must not be wasted.
“The only way we can build a nation out of Nigeria is by doing the right things. A united, inclusive, peaceful and prosperous Nigeria is possible if we go to work. We can start building that Nigeria of our dreams if we don’t waste our votes in the next election circle,” he added.
