Arewa Youths Reveal Their Stand On Muslim-Muslim Ticket -READ DETAILS

The National President of The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF), Yerima Shettima has stated emphatically that the choice for a running mate should be on the basis of competence and not religion.


This follows the speculation that the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have insinuated a possible Muslim-Muslim ticket.

However, Shettima, while interacting with DAILY POST, said presidential candidates should consider the present situation of the country when picking their running mate.

According to the AYCF National President, Nigeria’s unity is currently threatened, hence the need for competence.

His words, “On the issue of Muslim-Muslim tickets, I believe in competence, so whichever way it comes. But preferably, under the circumstances we are in now, we will look inward on how to save the country from this present situation.

“The unity of the country is being threatened, and there are a lot of divisions; we need competent people to come to the fore. It’s only when you save the country that you begin to think of what to share.

“But when the country is already in a dilemma, you don’t think of what to share. For example, if your car develops a problem somewhere around Abuja-Kaduna road, you will not think of waiting for a Muslim or Christian mechanic; you will be looking for an alternative mechanic to solve your problem to avoid kidnappers or armed robbers.

“Under normal circumstances, one would have preferred that in the spirit of equity, peace, and progress of this country, let’s have our Christian brothers on board, but we are in a very abnormal situation at the moment now; for as long as Nigerians would agree, let’s move the country forward now before thinking of what to share, otherwise you will wake up tomorrow, and there will be no Nigeria.”
