Islamic clerics warned me against APC’s same faith ticket – Naja’atu Mohammed


A former Director in the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Naja’atu Mohammed, has revealed that Islamic cleric told her that a muslim- muslim ticket is a Jihad.

In an interview with The PUNCH, she revealed that during her consultation with Islamic clerics about the suitability of the Presidential Candidate of the APC, the clerics enjoined her not to support the same faith ticket because it’s considered a Jihad for the Islamic faith.

“I saw him firsthand in London. He was sleeping most of the time. He can not stay for ten minutes without dozing off. Sometimes, Pa Bisi Akande supported him like this (shrugs off her right shoulder). It is so frustrating! He didn’t even understand what I was saying. The man is not mentally alert.

“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.

“APC has a candidate that cannot be deciphered, a man that the chairman of the party helped to be able to hold the party’s flag. Let us not crucify Tinubu because of his ill health, but we should also not sacrifice the lives and properties of over 200 million people because we want to be sympathetic to a sick person,” she added.
