As a matter of fact, some members have dumped the party making room for others to leave.

Senator Adamu said, “The fact of the matter is we appreciate that the Christians are interesting, no doubt about it. We are as practical as we can in this situation and we do hope that people would see reasons.

“Nobody is willing to promote Christianity or a Muslim ticket necessarily but we have to face the reality of our politics in this country and that is exactly what we are doing.

Christians have nothing to fear. Shettima is another Nigerian like me and you.

“We don’t have to be all Muslims or all Christians. It is the will of God that this time around he (Shettima) is going to be the vice president of this great country if we win the election. And we do hope and pray and we are working to win the election.”

Also, the Katsina State Governor Aminu Bello Masari, also spoke with reporters in a separate interview, according to him, the debate over APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket is unnecessary, he also insisted that what is most important is good leadership.

“It’s better to have a good Christian than a bad Muslim and vice versa and we should also understand the antecedents of anybody involved in a particular decision.

“If you go to Borno State and ask the Christian community there, they will give you an impressive account of Shettima when he was the governor.

“We should not forget that the wife of the APC presidential candidate is Christian and a pastor. So, she will be the unofficial vice president and representative of the Christians at the presidency,” he said.

The Ondo state governor also asked that we ignore Religion, Vote Competence, Akeredolu.
