Bishop Kukah Reacts To Tinubu’s Choice Of Running Mate

Bishop Mathew Hassan Kukah, Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese has said the decision by the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to present Muslim-Muslim ticket for the 2023 presidential election was a teamwork based on calculation of what would work for the party.

In a statement he personally signed on Monday, Kukah said the decision by the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu to pick Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate should not be a thing to worry about.

Asiwaju had on Sunday, announced the former Borno State Governor as his running mate for the 2023 presidential election,a development which has continued to generate reactions from concerned Nigerians who argued that a Christian Northerner should have been picked in place of Shettima.

But Kukah, while reacting to the controversy, said those angered by the development should support other candidates they feel are better.

The statement reads, “This is what you call team selection and everybody will choose depending on what they think will give them a fair chance. So people will take responsibility for the choices they have made. For me, it is not something to lose sleep over.

If people feel unhappy with the kind of choices that have been made, that is why we are democrats, you can’t force it. We outsiders cannot force a choice of any candidate.

According to Kukah,it is now left for you to look at the choices that have been made. And there is no guarantee that all Christians will vote for Christians and all Muslims will vote for Muslims.
