By Matthew Atungwu

Three governors; Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo) and Aminu Masari (Katsina) on Wednesday gave a robust defence of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) presidential team, saying the Muslim-Muslim ticket is not anti-Christian.

The ruling party’s national chairman Abdullahi Adamu also said Christians have no cause for worry.

On the part of the Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, he objected to the claim by former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Babachir Lawal that the choice of Senator Kashim Shettima as running mate by the presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, portends disaster at the poll.

Meanwhile, Katsina state governor, Aminu Masari, who spoke with reporters in Katsina, said the choice of Shettima was a wise decision, assuring that Christians and Muslims will vote for the ticket.

Similarly, Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, urged the electorate to ignore religion and vote for competence in next year’s election.

The governor, who spoke during the swearing-in of new commissioners in Akure, the state capital, said the buck stops at the president’s table, adding that the vice president’s religion does not affect the performance of any administration.

Also, second Republic member of the House of Assembly in Imo State Ugochukwu Nnawuike advised critics to stop lamenting over the APC ticket.

He said their lamentations cannot produce any result, except the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP) agree to forge an alliance ahead of the 2023 poll.
