Muslim-Muslim Ticket: We must live together as one — Tinubu
Reacting on the issue of the Muslim-Muslim ticket in the coming election, Bola Ahmad Tinubu, the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) dismissed the allegation by opponents insisting that Nigeria started on the pedestal of unity and brotherhood irrespective of tribe and religion.
Calling on religious leaders at a town hall meeting of Muslim leaders from Northwest in Kano on Tuesday, Tinubu stated that Nigeria started on “Though Tribes And Tongues May Differ, In Brotherhood We Stand” in its former National Anthem and that should continue as a nation.
He explained that it is those who don’t mean well for Nigeria that has changed this reality into what is obtained today while promising to carry everyone along based on his ideas that are beneficial to the country and not based on tribe or religion
Tinubu declared that his vision is that of collaboration, continuity and consistency for the development of Nigeria.
“You represent the spiritual and ethical values of our country and without your guidance, we would not be on the right path. Hence we must rededicate ourselves to work harder for the progress and development of our country. We need to be fair and just.
“We must live together as one. It is those who do not mean well for Nigeria that preach division. Nigeria started with a National Anthem ‘though tribes and tongue may differ in brotherhood we stand’. They will not succeed and you as religious scholars must resist it.
