Muslim-Muslim Ticket Irresponsible, Disregard To Country’s Diversity – PFN

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Kaduna State Chapter, has said that the decision of the Presidential Candidate of the ruling APC and that of Kaduna State to fly a same faith ticket is an irresponsible decision and disregard to the nation’s diversity.

He said it is the responsibility of all political parties in the country to strengthen national integration and not otherwise.
A statement issued by PFN, Kaduna state chapter and signed by Apostle Emmanuel Egoh Bako, said that such a selection is against the unity of the country.

“I have noticed with great dismay the consistent disregard for our heterogeneous nature in Nigeria by our political players. This is done in the face of increasing weakness of the bond of unity. It is not only against the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, but against the plan of God,” Bako said.
He said the new trend of fielding party flag bearers with individuals from one faith is not consistent with the federal system but it has the potency to polarise the beloved nation at this crucial moment all true citizens are searching for unity.

Bako noted that the ongoing political situation in the country is a pure irresponsibility and a total disregard to the country’s diversities.
“This is not acceptable,” Bako said, explaining that, “It is obvious that the decision is taken to cover up for the failure of the government and to also spite other religious disagreement.
“Both Muslims and Christians are suffocating under the highest level of insecurity. This has further reduced our life expectancy in Nigeria. Apart from this, the religious fault lines in the past seven years have widened. The responsibility of all political parties at this moment should be on strengthening national integration and not otherwise,” Bako said while calling on all peace-loving citizens to reject this evil pattern that is gradually getting entrenched.
The clergy also appealing to Nigerians to unite and build a society on the basis of respect for everyone’s humanity.
The chairman believed that both Muslims and Christians are affected by the economic hardships brought by poor leadership adding that no one should be deceived by the Muslim-Muslim ticket.
“Muslim – Muslim ticket is barbaric and unacceptable. Right thinking Nigerians shall not let it stand because it showcases the great nation in a bad light. I see 2023 as an opportunity to open up our nation to real political civilization,” Bako added.
