Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Citadel Global Community Church reacted to the Muslim-muslim ticket of the APC by asking voters to rise above ethnic and religious sentiments and vote for politicians that have the capacity to transform the country.
The popular pastor made the call during his sermon on Sunday.
Bakare who contested for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC, said that achieving a Nigeria that works for everyone irrespective of affiliations.
This comes after the controversy that has trailed the ruling party’s decision to present candidates of the same Muslim faith.
Recall that the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, announced former Borno State governor, Kashim Shettima, a fellow Muslim as his running mate for the 2023 election.
Bakare said, “We dream of a Nigeria in which every woman, as well as every man, will be able to aspire to any political office at any time without playing the ethnic card and without recourse to it’s our turn or it’s their turn.
“What we need is a New Nigeria that works for every Nigerian, Christian as well as Muslim. Nationhood, rather than divisiveness, must be the objective of every engagement.”
