Vice President-elect of Nigeria, Kashim Shettima has kicked against same-faith leadership in the 10th National Assembly.
According to Shettima, having Muslims as President, Vice President, Senate president, and Speaker was not good for the country’s stability.
He said on Friday in a meeting with elected House of Representatives members that the decision would validate the negative narrative of the Islamisation agenda.

The Vice President-elect revealed to prevent the Islamisation agenda narrative, the President-elect, Bola Tinubu suggested that the number three citizen should come from either the South-south or the South-east.
“What we are trying to avoid is a situation whereby the number one citizen, number two citizen, the number three citizen, and the number four citizen are all of the same faith.
“That will lend credence, validate the negative narrative of Islamization of Nigeria.
“This is why my principal, a fair-minded leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is more inclined towards having the number three citizen from the South/south or the south-east.
“Even in the current circumstance that we find ourselves in, the stability of the nation is much more important than any other consideration.
“All other considerations have to be relegated to the background because we are talking about the stability of the nation.”
Recall that despite criticisms against the same-faith ticket, the Borno State Governor and his principal, Tinubu, both Muslims, emerged as winners of the February 25th presidential election.
Thereafter, the struggle for who becomes Senate President and Speaker of the 10th National Assembly began.
