Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Citadel Global Community Church has advised Nigerians to look beyond the All Progressives Congress’ controversial Muslim-Muslim ticket and focus on having a new Nigeria.
The cleric, who was one of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential aspirants, stated this during a sermon on Sunday.
While kicking against religious sentiment in politics, Bakare said what the country needs is leadership that would work for both Christian and Muslims.
He added, “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, ‘its 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.”
