He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he personally does not believe in the Muslim-Muslim ticket because sticking to one faith is not a good thing to do, particularly in a troubled nation as we are in today.
Okowa added that the only ticket that can work for Nigeria is the ticket that does not tie election victory to either the Muslim or Christian faith.
His words, “I personally do not believe in the Muslim-Muslim ticket. The reason is that there is diversity when it comes to that. Therefore, sticking to one faith is not a good thing to do particularly in a troubled nation as we are in today. It’s almost like going on to having the presidential candidate from the North and picking the vice presidential candidate also from the North.”
“So, the only ticket that can work for Nigeria is the ticket that does not tie election victory to either the Muslim or Christian faith.”
“The PDP will win the election because many people have keyed into this project. We are receiving defectors in droves. When we say that the future is for the youth, it is actually from today. But the real truth is, our youths, particularly the youth leaders must be in a position to have a clear understanding so that they are able to guide others aright. This is because if you have a leadership that is not able to provide that true leadership of guiding people alright and people begin to think in the wrong way, you create further problems rather than finding solutions; and we go the wrong path.”
“We are going to see bullying in the cyberspace of our country. I think that everybody should have his space and time to be able to think and make comments without being bullied. We need to do critical thinking and that is why we are gathered here today.”
“The topic for the event is key because it talks about unifying Nigeria. This is instructive because there is strength in our diversity but that will only be when we are able to unite ourselves.”
