Popular Nigerian lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa (SAN) has called out the All Progressives Congress for choosing a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
Recall that former Governor of Borno State, Senator Kashim Shettima was chosen as the running mate of Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate.
Adegoruwa in a statement on Sunday kicked against such a move. He called on Nigerians to reject the APC.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria argued that the Muslim-Muslim ticket is fuel for Boko Haram and an incentive for the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters.
He added that the ticket is a call for terrorism to thrive more in the country, describing it as a terrible choice and a way to insult the citizens’ sensibilities.
Adegboruwa, however, called on Nigerians in respect of their faith to reject APC with their votes in the 2023 presidential election.
He said: “Nigerians, whether Muslims, Christians, Traditionalists, should reject APC with their votes come 2023 because a Muslim-Muslim ticket in present-day Nigeria is fuel for Boko Haram, the incentive for ISWAP and a call for terrorism to thrive more.
“Unless of course, those parading the ticket are themselves complicit. There is no better way to insult our sensibilities. I pray it is not true.”
