Tinubu’s Muslim-Muslim Ticket Is ‘A Disastrous Error, Dead On Arrival’ – Babachir Lawal
Written by on July 13, 2022
Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, has faulted the announcement of a Muslim-Muslim ticket by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Lawal, in a note he personally signed on Tuesday, described the decision as a “disastrous error.”
Mr Tinubu on Sunday had announced former Borno State Governor, Kassim Shettima, as his running mate in the 2023 presidential election.
Both men are Muslims.
Mr Lawal, who backed Tinubu during the APC presidential primaries, said the choice of Mr Shettima was a sign that the APC presidential candidate has “been cornered by self-serving, hero-worshiping, lapdogs.”
