A former presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, Adamu Garba, has alleged that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, is working to ‘divide the Muslims and Christians’.
Garba, in a post through his Twitter account on Tuesday stated that Obi was pushing a very dangerous agenda capable of affecting the whole country.
He wrote, “Peter Obi is playing a dangerous religious game in the North. All his recent Northern tours are targeted at predominantly Christian areas. He needs to know that he cannot export his IPOB games to the North.
“The North is a United Muslims and Christian domain. He can’t divide us.
“He and his cohorts, in addition to his collaborators, cannot set us against one another. This has been the game of Obasanjo for a long time.
“He tried it for 8 years and could not succeed, he attempted to use Jonathan but failed. Now it is Peter Obi, we know and we’ll not accept this.
If you want to be a president, go everywhere. But we noticed whatever games Obi is playing.
“He went to Kano, visited Sabon Gari, without homage to Emirs, went to Kaduna, neglected the Emir of Zazzau, went to Yola, didn’t visit Lamido or Mubi Emir. It has been the trend. Divisions!
“Peter Obi is pushing a very dangerous agenda that is capable of affecting the whole country. We can’t allow that to happen.
“Nigerians need to see the games in plain sight. This is a very bad precedent.
“He is working to divide the Muslims and Christians. It is not acceptable.”
It would be recalled that the same faith ticket of the All Progressives Congress generated mixed reactions from Nigerians, as many claimed that the muslim/muslim ticket of the APC does not respect the religious structure of the nation.
The APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, who is a muslim had fielded Senator Kashim Shettima, who is also a muslim.
Also recently, a former Director in the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Naja’atu Mohammed, revealed that Islamic cleric told her that a muslim- muslim ticket is a Jihad.
“I asked some of those around him, as well as some of our clerics, who claimed that having a Muslim-Muslim ticket is a Jihad. I asked them, ‘Can you allow Tinubu to lead you in prayer? Can you allow Tinubu to be your Imam? If you say yes, I will join you.’ But they said no, so I asked why? They said because he is sick,” she said.
