What would you do now that the parties have chosen their candidates?*
Tinubu’s running mate, Shettima, came to visit me here about two weeks ago to explain that their ticket is not an attempt to Islamise Nigeria. He said he was liberal, adding that Tinubu has a wife who is a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God. He also said that when he was the governor of Borno State, he spent N1billion in building churches. But I said we were talking about inclusiveness and you cannot run a government that is not balanced. If you take proper census it will even be difficult to know the population of Muslims and Christians in the country. So, you cannot ignore one religion. Why would you spend N1bn belonging to Borno people to build churches, thinking that you have regard for Christians? That is a waste of money. He said he would bring Tinubu to continue the discussion.
What I told Omo-Agege, who wants to be the governor of Delta State, is that I have always been in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Although I have retired from active politics, they still have my sympathy.
Headlinenews.news agreed that no governor, former governor or minister and so on should vote for a northern presidential candidate. I won’t vote for them. I could have voted for the All Progressives Congress (APC) for supporting our course, but this was again destroyed by a Muslim- Muslim ticket.
