Tinubu and APC made a fatal error. Argument of no Christian being competent enough to be vice-president is hogwash - Former Speaker, Yakubu Dogara

Yakubu Dogara, a former speaker of the house of representatives has again kicked against the Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC). 


Speaking at the APC Northern Christian Leaders Summit on Friday July 29, Dogara said the ruling party and its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu made a “fatal error of judgment”.


He also said that it is hogwash to assert that no Christian is competent to be Tinubu’s running mate.


Dogara 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 meeting was also 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, and many others.
