Former Governor of Oyo State, Senator Rasheed Ladoja has expressed his support for a Muslim-Muslim Presidential and Vice-Presidential tickets in the 2023 General elections saying there is nothing wrong with it.
The former governor threw his weight behind the same-faith ticket when he addressed newsmen at his residence in Bodija on Saturday.
He said: “I don’t see anything wrong in Muslim-Muslim ticket because I don’t intervene in religion matters. Muslims and Christians are from the same father.
“Some people are following Ismal while some are following Isaac which are siblings. So, what is now my own to be fighting for one among them? Even I don’t have time to fight with traditionalists.
“It is only God that knows his servants, so why must we fight over religion? All religions including traditonal religion preach love and good characters.
“It is only politicians that usually cause crisis with religion. If not for the crisis and killing in some parts of the country, we don’t usually think about the kind of religion someone is practising.
But when gunmen started attacking churches and kidnapping clerics in Christendom, people started doubting their fellow brothers who belong to another religion.
“So, they are the cause of all these things. But God will intervene and make Nigeria peaceful again.” He said.
Ladoja further added: “There are many factors involved in electing President. Whoever wants to be president and those working for him have to go extra miles. In fact, they will need more prayers as they are consulting.
“With all these efforts, God has the final say on who becomes the president. Chief MKO Abiola who was a Muslim was elected alongside his vice, a Muslim. We only need to pray that if Tinubu wins, it will not be like that of late Chief Abiola”.
