A group known as the All Progressives Congress (APC) northern Christian leaders have resolved to adopt a presidential candidate in a bid to defeat the ruling party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.


The group is led by Yakubu Dogara, a former speaker of the house of representatives, and Babachir Lawal, a former secretary to the government of the federation (SGF).

Both politicians have repeatedly expressed their dismay over the decision of the APC to field a same-faith ticket. Bola Tinubu, the party’s presidential candidate, and Kashim Shettima, his running mate, are both Muslims.

“That we have agreed to work together with a view to fostering unity, peace and national cohesion,” a communique issued after the meeting reads.

“To work together and jointly adopt a pan-Nigerian political platform that will engender unity, inclusiveness, and a sense of belonging among the Nigerian citizenry.

“Conscious of a multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural configuration of Nigeria we believe that a same faith ticket and voting along religious lines may trigger dangerous dimensions of negative consequences among our disparate peoples in ways that will hamper nation building.
