Political Affairs Analyst speaks on APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket


The argument for or against a Muslim -Muslim ticket is perhaps one of the most debated political issue as of today in Nigeria.

This comes as the former governor of Lagos state and Presidential candidate of the All-Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu opted for former Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima as his running mate.

His decision goes contrary to the unspoken rule in Nigeria, where political parties present both a Christian and Muslim candidate in order to appeal to voters in the country’s major religious blocs.

In his defence, Bola Tinubu said the party’s decision reflects the spirit of the 1993 election, where the late Moshood Abiola, the presumed winner of the election, chose, another muslim as his running mate.

Now, the APC has made its move in the dicey game of politics, but the question is, will this play guarantee the ruling party a win in the upcoming election?
