POLITICS OF EXCLUSION AND POLITICS OF PROXIMITY ARE RECIPES FOR CONFLICT AND POLITICAL INSTABILITY.
For those who are saying that a Muslim-Muslim ticket has nothing to do with religion they should please find time to study identity politics, Politics of exclusion and Politics of proximity.
Any Political party that does not respect your religion does not deserve your vote. Even those who were afraid to speak when Deborah was killed in Sokoto now see nothing wrong in a Muslim-Muslim ticket. If I may ask, where are those who killed Deborah? I’m sure the hysteria of a Muslim-Muslim ticket has eclipsed their crimes and we have forgotten them.
I call on all men and women of God in Nigeria especially those who make money from the visit of Politicians to their Churches and collect money from them during election period to please control their stomach this election period and let’s get it right.
Any Presidential aspirant that does not have a Christian as a running mate should not be allowed to enter your Church and talk to your congregations. If they see that denial as disloyalty to the government in power, then disloyalty becomes a virtue. You cannot despise my religion and still want my vote.
If you don’t respect my religion please stay clear from my place of worship. You cannot love my vote and hate my religion… I don’t support a Muslim-Muslim ticket neither do I support a Christian-Christian ticket. Our diversity is our strength… You have spoken loudly with your choice. You shall hear from us with our votes…
If you despise my religion and come to my Church for campaign, “You go collect.”
