CAN’s Opposition To Muslim-Muslim Ticket Godly — Dogara

A former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has stated that the Christian Association of Nigeria’s opposition to the All Progressives Congress’ Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket was godly.

Gatekeepers News reports that Dogara spoke during a symposium on the leadership crises in Nigeria as part of activities marking the 12th General Assembly of CAN in Abuja.

Dogara, a chieftain of the APC, pointed out that CAN’s position on the matter is the position of all those who love justice.

He said, “I want to say emphatically that CAN’s position on the Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket in this country, at this moment of national peril, is not just CAN’s or that of Babachir Lawal, whom many have accused of being the only one who has turned it into an issue.

“I believe it (the rejection of same-faith ticket) is also the Almighty’s own position, because we serve a God of justice. He is the righteous one as well as the author of diversity, and he wants us, as diverse as we are, to come together.

“So, CAN’s stance is the position of all of us (Christian political leaders) who love righteousness, justice as well as diversity and are working to harness these for the advancement of this country.

“In as much as what we are fighting for is a godly position, every other position is ungodly. There’s no middle-way. It is either you are for righteousness, justice and inclusivity or you are working against the unity of this great country.”
