Senator Ishaku Abbo of Adamawa North Senatorial District has expressed his displeasure with the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for choosing a Muslim as his running mate.

Senator Abbo called Tinubu’s decision irresponsible, noting that the presidential candidate prioritised his political survival over Nigeria’s stability and peace.

According to a People’s Gazette report, Mr. Abbo has since resigned his membership in a Tinubu support group due to Tinubu’s decision to run on a Muslim-Muslim ticket for the APC.

Senator Abbo went on to say that Tinubu would have taken a cue from President Muhammadu Buhari, who chose a Christian Vice Presidential candidate in 2015, due to the country’s fractures and divisions at the time.

He also explained how he met with a support group in Abuja about Tinubu’s running mate nomination, and how they strongly advised him that a Muslim-Muslim ticket would not be beneficial to the country at the moment.

He vowed not to work for such a candidate because the Muslims would not accept a Muslim-Muslim ticket if the tables were turned.
