Sen Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s choice of a Muslim as his running mate will fuel Boko Haram in Nigeria, says human rights lawyer Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa.
Adegboruwa stated this in a reaction to Tinubu’s choice of former governor of Borno State Kashim Shittima as his running mate.
Tinubu is the candidate of the the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 presidential election.
The Lagos lawyer stated this in a release seen by our correspondent.
According to him, “It is a terrible choice, in one million ways! Nigerians, whether Muslims, Christians, traditionalists, etc, should reject APC with their votes come 2023.
“A Muslim-Muslim ticket in present-day Nigeria is fuel for Boko Haram, incentive for ISWAP and a call for more terrorists.
“Unless of course those parading the ticket are themselves complicit. There is no better way to insult our sensibilities.
“I pray it is not true.”
