Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu’s decision to run on a Muslim-Muslim ticket has raised some concerns among Nigerians.

Barely 24 hours, Bola Tinubu announced Kashim Shettima as his running mate for the 2023 election on Sunday, July 10, some members have resigned from the party.

According to the former governor of Lagos state, his decision to pick Kashim Shettima as his running mate was not based on religion or tribe but on competence as he believes the former governor of Borno will serve the country better.

However, many Nigerians differ following the failure of Shettima to secure the release of the Chibok girls when he was governor of Borno state.

Many alleged that Shettima is a suspected sympathizer of the Boko Haram insurgents who have been calling for Nigeria to become an Islamic State and ruled by Sharia law.

Meanwhile, there are some Nigerians who believe Bola Tinubu does not have the interest of the country at heart and that all he wants is to become the president, a dream he has since longed for.

Others are of the view, that the presidential candidate would be the same as President Muhammdu Buhari-led administration who failed to fulfill the promises he made to the country.

Nigerians have since taken to social media to react to the APC’s decision to select a Muslim-Muslim ticket despite warnings from the masses.
