Matthew Hassan Kukah, the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, has described the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket as reprehensible and unacceptable.

DAILY REPORT NG reports that amidst opposition from some Nigerians, the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu had picked Kashim Shettima, a fellow Muslim as his running mate for the 2023 election.

Speaking on the development, Kukah during a chat with Channels Television on Thursday, insisted that the ticket was a setback to the Nigeria’s national integration.

The Catholic Bishop wondered if Muslims in the country would accept a Christian-Christian presidential ticket.

According to him: “But moving forward, the question I have asked my friends who are Muslims, especially those who are from northern Nigeria, is a simple question: ‘Would Muslims in Nigeria or northern Nigeria be ready to make the same concession that Christians made in 1984 and 1993?

“I think that as a Christian, this is totally reprehensible. It is not acceptable to me, but that is the decision of the APC as a party. Perhaps, when the campaign starts, we will hear what people have to say.”
