- The decision of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) to settle for a Muslim-Muslim ticket is still suffering criticism
- Most Reverend Mathew Ndagoso of the Kaduna Catholic Archdiocese said a political party with such ideology must suffer the consequences
- He told Christians that a party that does not encourage the principle of fairness, unity and equity should not be voted for
Kaduna, Kaduna - Most Reverend Mathew Ndagoso of the Kaduna Catholic Archdiocese has urged Christians not to vote the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in the forthcoming election over their decision to field a Muslim-Muslim candidate.
As reported by Channels TV, the cleric said a decision to field same-faith ticket works against the principle of fairness, unity and equity in a broad society like Nigeria.
He stated this on Monday, November 21 in Kaduna while stressing that religion plays a key role in a socio-political space and must be adopted by any political party or politician in Nigeria.
He further revealed that a political party that is not sensitive to the importance of religion in a socio-political clime will suffer the consequences of such high level ignorance.
