- Ahead of the 2023 general elections, Tinubu Support Group has cleared the air regarding the Muslim-Muslim ticket
- The DG of the group is of the view that such a ticket would in no way affect the APC chieftain if he becomes the presidential candidate of the ruling party
- The group added that Nigerians place more importance on the personality that wants to rule the country and not the ticket issue of a Muslim or Christian candidate
Abuja- The Director-General of the Tinubu Support Group, Abdulmumin Jibrin, says a Muslim-Muslim ticket does not matter if Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, becomes the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the 2023 general elections.

The Punch reports that the former lawmaker, who is now Executive Director (Business Development) at the Federal Housing Authority, stated this during a current affairs programme, on Monday, January 3 in Abuja.
