MUSLIM-MUSLIM TICKET: LALONG CRITICIZES OPPOSITION
Written by Kayode Sanni on August 10, 2022
Plateau state Governor SIMON LALONG has criticised Christians who oppose his acceptance to serve as the Director General of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Organization.
There has been a round of controversy since the emergence of KASHIM SHETTIMA as the running of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, BOLA TINUBU with many especially among the Christian folks including the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) rejecting the Muslim-Muslim ticket.
But Governor LALONG backed the idea of the Muslim-Muslim ticket after meeting with President MUHAMMADU BUHARI at the State House in Abuja.
In a question and answer session, LALONG noted that as an awardee of Knight of Saint Gregory, he remains a firm Catholic despite his new responsibility to market a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.
