Former speaker of the house of representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has shared his thoughts on the All Progressives Congress (APC) decision to run a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

According to Dogara, the ruling party and its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu has made a fatal error of judgement when they said "there is no Christian competent enough to be vice-president".

He said this at the APC Northern Christian Leaders Summit on Friday July 29.

Dogara stated that saying no Christian is competent to be Tinubu's running mate is hogwash.

He said;

“I do not want to speak to the argument that there is no Christian competent enough to be vice-president because as we all know, that is hogwash.

“As long as God remains the God of justice, may we continue to resist injustice to our sinews, no matter who is for or against it because it is the requirement of the just God.

“Let us go out from this summit with the resolve to seek out our Muslim brothers and sisters who believe in unifying our people in order to usher in the much need peace and advancement for Nigeria to unleash her true potentials.

“I am sure we will jointly agree on a platform that would advance our collective search for unity, peace and development. Believe me, the only alternative is the road to Yugoslavia.

“God forbid! If we want to see Nigeria exalted, we must insist she does the right things.”

The APC Northern Christian Leaders Summit was attended by former Secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), Engr Babachir Lawal, Elisha Abbo, a serving Adamawa senator, Solomon Dalung, a former minister of youths and sports, among others.
