APC’s Muslim-Muslim Ticket Is Unacceptable To The Anglican Community – Church

The Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) has come out to blast the All Progressives Congress for insisting on a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket despite general outcry.

The Anglican Bishop of Kubwa Diocese, Rev. Dr. Duke Akamisoko recently had his say via a recent interview, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, it was irresponsible of the APC to place its political survival over the stability and peace of Nigeria, and it is very clear how poor a decision that was.

He then described the party’s same-faith ticket as totally unacceptable to the Anglican Communion.

His words, “Muslim-Muslim ticket at a time like this is a demonstration of insensitivity to the plurality of religion; the polarised nature of Nigeria; the plight of Christians in Nigeria and the feelings of Christians in Northern Nigeria etc.”

“In fact, it is a direct insult on the entire Christendom. The APC has made a choice; it is left to Christians in Nigeria to also make their choice.”

“There can never be a rational explanation for such a selfish, greedy and self-centered decision by the APC. It is irresponsible of the APC to take its political survival over the stability and peace of Nigeria.”

“The party ought to have taken a cue from the opposition against his vice presidential ambition and how President Muhammadu Buhari opted for a Christian running mate in 2015 instead of the Muslim-Muslim ticket.”

“A Muslim-Muslim ticket is the greatest insult on the Christian community, especially in the Northern region. Is APC saying that there is no Northern Christian who is intelligent enough to be its running mate? Is APC saying that there is no Northern Christian who has a political value to deliver victory to it? Definitely, the answer is NO.”
