The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Matthew Hassan Kukah has rejected the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.
The cleric said the same faith ticket being championed by the APC is reprehensible and unacceptable.
Speaking with Channels Television on Thursday, the Catholic Bishop insisted that the ticket was a setback to the country’s national integration.
Kukah wondered if Muslims would accept a Christian-Christian presidential ticket.
He said Nigerians would wait to hear what they have to say when the campaign starts.
He said: “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.”
