Muslim-Muslim Ticket Is Threat To National Security: Group

The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu choosing a Muslim as his running mate for the 2023 election is a threat to national security, according to a warning from Nigeria Democracy Defence Watch to President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

According to the NDDW, Nigerian Christians will rebel against a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

The group requested Mr. Buhari to advise Mr. Tinubu from running for vice president of the APC as a Muslim by involving the country’s security agencies.

APC’s Muslim/Muslim Ticket in Nigeria’s 2023 Elections: A Threat to National Stability, Regional Peace, and Security is the title of the group’s letter to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The letter, which was signed by the group’s national coordinator and national secretary, Ahmed Adamu, and national secretary Adeniji Adegoke, was made accessible to journalists on Monday in Abuja.

According to the group, the leaders of democratic and security institutions, as well as other international organizations, are copied on the letter.

It stated that a Muslim-Muslim ticket would not only pose a threat to national stability, but also have a negative impact on the peace and security of the nation.

A Muslim-Muslim ticket, according to the organisation, would be bad for Nigeria’s reputation. Millions of Christians, moderate Muslims, and civic organizations, among others, would oppose this, according to the group.

“We are, therefore, calling on President Buhari to direct the security forces to do what is needed by advising Senator Bola Tinubu, APC presidential candidate and the party on the possible threats this action could pose to security in the country,” the letter stated. “It is pertinent to note the serious implications of the action with regards to security, especially when one rightly imagines that Christians will feel threatened with a Muslim-Muslim ticket. They may resort to pulpit preachings and mobilisation of opinions across Christendom.”

The group emphasized that West Africa’s peace and security are dependent on the assumption of Nigeria’s political stability in order to warn of the threat the political arrangement could pose to continental security.

“We, therefore, implore you to use your good offices to weigh in on Tinubu and the APC to thread with caution and refrain from unyielding desire to foist on the nation a Muslim-Muslim ticket,” stated the group.
