The Christian Association of Nigeria has reacted to the selection of the former governor of Borno state, Kashim Shettima, as the running mate to the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Ahmed Tinubu.
Muslim-Muslim ticket: CAN reacts to Tinubu's choice of running mate - Read Here
Shettima, a Muslim, was announced as his running mate during a visit to the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) in Daura on Sunday.
Recall that CAN, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, and other civil society organizations had previously warned against running a Muslim-Muslim ticket in the 2023 presidential election.
Speaking in an interview, CAN’s spokesperson, Adebayo Oladeji, said making such a decision in a polarized country was a bad move.
He stated that if having a pastor as the vice president of the country and Christian clerics and worshipers are being killed, the security of the lives and properties of Christians under Muslim-Muslim could not be guaranteed.
Oladeji, however, warned that Nigerians should be ready to face the consequences of their actions if they endorsed and voted for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
He said, “We knew this was what he was going to do and we warned against it." It is up to Nigerians to decide on what they want.
“You were all alive when we warned Buhari not to allow Muslims to dominate the security architecture of the country, and he did it." I think we can see the way criminals are operating with impunity.
"So, if Tinubu says he is opting for a Muslim-Muslim ticket in a polarised country like ours, and if Nigerians endorse him and vote for him, whatever happens, Nigerians will face the consequences." 
“If you have a government where a pastor is a vice president and pastors and worshipers are being killed, you can imagine what will happen when we have a Muslim-Muslim ticket." 
“It is left to Nigerians to make their choice. Let them vote them in and we will all face the consequences together."
“We are raising our alarm. It is an irony that Buhari regarded as an extremist when we raised an alarm to warn him against a Muslim-Muslim ticket, which he heeded and opted for a Christian as his vice-presidential candidate.”
