Oct 27, 2014 – 2015 Nigerian Presidential Election: Obasanjo Warns Against Muslim-Muslim Or Christian-Christian Ticket
Ex-President Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo has warned against the danger of picking a Muslim-Muslim Presidential ticket.
Obasanjo says the fear of Islamisation or Christianisation of Nigeria poses a threat to peaceful coexistence of people in Nigeria.
In a PR issued on Sunday evening, hear what the former President sai:
“Sensitivity is a necessary ingredient for enhancement of peace, security and stability at this point in the political discourse and arrangement for Nigeria and for encouraging confidence and trust.
“It will be insensitive to the point of absurdity for any leader or any political party to be toying with Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket at this juncture.
“Nigeria cannot at this stage, raise the spectre and fear of Islamisation or Christianisation. The idea of proselytisation in any form is a grave danger that must not be contemplated by any serious-minded politician at this delicate situation in Nigeria, as this time is different from any other time.”
Do you agree with him?
