Muslim-Muslim, Christian-Christian tickets cannot get you free food – Tinubu Support Group for Nigerians
The support group of All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu has urged Nigerians to overcome concerns over which region their candidate picks their running mate from.
The APC Zone Secretary, South-South, Dr. Blessing Agbomhere made the appeal in a statement delivered to reporters on Saturday, saying a Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket cannot guarantee free food for Nigerians, so citizens should focus on the best candidate to help the country recover from its duration.
Agbomhere said the party’s priority at the moment is to win the 2023 presidential election and victory depends solely on the support of Nigerians.
He underscored that Nigerians at this crucial juncture should be concerned with which candidate and political party will bring the desired development to the country and not whether Tinubu would choose a Muslim or a Christian as his running mate.
He said: “All we have to do is focus on winning. presidential election 2023 as a party and our victory will depend on our ability to train Nigerians.
“We can’t afford to lose focus by being distracted by who Tinubu might decide to choose as our running mate. The solution to the challenges facing Nigeria does not lie in whether Tinubu’s running mate is Christian or Muslim.
“Nigerians are not interested in who becomes the running mate of any of the presidential candidates. What they need is good governance that would guarantee security, political stability and socio-economic progress.”
Agbomhere added: “No one can carry a market pass based on Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian tickets for Asiwaju or any other presidential candidate and get groceries for free. They only need a ticket that would guarantee product availability and economic empowerment to meet their needs.
He stressed that the party at both state and federal level is ready to support Tinubu’s candidacy, whoever ultimately emerged as his standard running mate.
Agbomhere insisted it was within Tinubu’s constitutional rights to choose his running mate, regardless of the person’s religious affiliation.
