The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal has labelled the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC as an agenda to islamise Nigeria.
Babachir David Lawal who is from Adamawa state made this known in a statement he signed himself, which was his reaction to Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s decision to opt for former Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, as his running mate.
Shettima is alleged to be one of the sponsors of Boko Haram, the notorious Islamic terrorist group.
In it, he maintained that Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano has a Foundation in his name, where the main agenda is to convert Christians to Islam.
The statement reads partly: “Proof of a possible Islamic agenda was leaked when Governor Ganduje, the ‘Kadmul Islam’, gave advance notice that Tinubu had assured them he would nominate a Moslem as his running mate. For those who might not know, Governor Ganduje has a foundation called “Ganduje Foundation” whose purpose, according to its website is to “provide selfless service to humanity and Islam” but whose primary purpose it appears is the conversion of Christians to Islam.”
“So if my very good friend Tinubu, in a desperate bid to become president, allows himself to be made into a religious bigot or even a mujahideen, he is welcome. But, were he to win and become President of Nigeria, it would be as a sectional president, an Islamic president, and he will surely face massive discontent and opposition even before taking off,” he added.
