BY GODWIN OBI

Northern Christians in the All Progressives Congress have insisted that the Muslim-Muslim ticket adopted by the ruling party in defiance of protests by well-meaning, key national stakeholders, including prominent Islamic and Christians leaders, is divisive, unjust and insensitive.

This was contained in a communiqué they issued yesterday at the end of leaders summit with the theme, “Righteousness Exalts A Nation,” held in Abuja.

In the communiqué signed by Prof Doknan Sheni (Plateau), representing North Central, Dr. Ishaya Bauka (Taraba), representing North East and Prof Saidu Ibrahim (Jigawa) representing North West, the leaders declared: “We Northern Christians in APC will not support or enable in any way this callous attempt to divide Nigeria along religious lines as exemplified by the already toxic debate in the media.

“That we will set up a committee within us with a mandate to go round Nigeria and consult with both Christians and Muslim stakeholders, including other stakeholders, who are not of the faith community, but who share our aspirations for a peaceful and united Nigeria to arrive at the best platform that will better galvanise and steer our patriotic spirits and resolve towards collectively building a united multi-religious, multi-ethnic society as guaranteed by our constitution.

“That we will summon an inter-faith summit in no distant future after consultations are concluded across religious divide where notable Muslim and Christian politicians and Islamic and Christian leaders will announce to the nation and the world, the best pan Nigerian platform that will better serve our collective interests as a people, post 2023
