Following the decision of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to run a Muslim-Muslim ticket, some disappointed stakeholders are now speaking up against themselves.

Babachir Lawal, a former secretary to the government of the federation, and Yakubu Dogara, an ex-speaker of the House of Representatives, have reportedly kicked against the APC's Muslim-Muslim ticket.

However, some members are of the view that the above are being hypocritical about the religious issue.

According to a Facebook user, Otunba Akintola Akinwumi Peter, who was quoted by Joe Igbokwe on Sunday, July 31, alleged that Dogara and Lawal were among APC bigwigs who supported Bola Tinubu during the party's presidential primary.

Peter also revealed that the two members worked against Vice president Yemi Osinbajo during the Primaries and never thought of religion.

Peter's post read:

“You will think some of these people are fighting for Christianity. NO! They are fighting for their personal and selfish interest.

"Babachir Lawal & Yakubu Dogara, supported Tinubu and worked against Pastor Yemi Osinbajo, a fellow Christian at the APC primaries.

"Now, that they fail to get the VP slot, they suddenly remember the definition of Christianity!

"I am a Christian, I hate hypocrisy. I am not saved by the faith of anyone but my own faith in Christ."
