Nigerians have been urged to shun religious politics that could truncate the nation’s democracy and hamper development.
The jagaban political group made the appeal in a statement issued by one of its coordinators, bukky olajide, last Friday, and maintained that the candidacy of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and alhaji kashim shetima should not be seen as an affront against Christianity but rather a formidable team that would help to salvage the nation from doldrums
The group implored Nigerians to see themselves as an entity and join hands with the All Progressives Congress (APC) towards electing credible leaders in 2023.
” This team is made up of experienced administrators that have excelled during their days as governors of Lagos and Bornu respectively. The choice of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Alhaji kashim Shetima as both the presidential and vice-presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC is a blessing to the nation”.
The group urged Nigerians not to listen to enemies of the nation who bent on dividing the country through religion as the country belong to all of us
According to the group religion needs to be seen as a unifying factor that will engender good governance, transparency and peaceful coexistence in the interest of Nigerians
The group described Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a philanthropist who has helped many Nigerians to achieve their dreams and aspirations irrespective of religion or tribal affiliation
While appealing to Nigerians to support All Progressives Congress (APC) during forthcoming general elections, the group advised Nigerians to de-emphasise the issue of religion during the election as it wouldnot do the nation any good but cause confusion and disharmony
