Islamic Cleric rejects same-Faith presidential ticket, says Muslim won’t support a Christian-Christian presidential ticket
A former Special Adviser on Islamic Matters to late governor Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa of Kaduna State, Sheikh Haliru Abdullahi Maraya, has opined that those promoting the idea of a Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian presidential ticket, in today’s Nigeria, do not wish the country well now that it is divided along religious fault lines.
Speaking on “Islamic view on same-faith presidential ticket in today’s Nigeria”, the former Special Adviser stated, “Those promoting the idea of a Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian presidential ticket, in today’s Nigeria, do not wish the country well especially now that it is divided along religious fault lines.”
He explained that it’s wrong for a Muslim to support a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket as it is at variance with the spirit of justice which the religion of Islam promotes and defends at all times.
“I don’t think there is a Muslim who will support a Christian-Christian presidential ticket. Undoubtedly, the Muslims would cry out for the perpetration of injustice against them,” he said.
