Obasanjo Warns against candidates of same religion

Former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasan­jo, has said it would be insensitive to the point of absurdity for any leader or any political party to toy with Muslim- Muslim or Christian- Christian ticket for now.

In a press statement signed by him and dated October 28, 2014 and is­sued yesterday evening, he said: “Sensitivity is a necessary ingredient for enhancement of peace, se­curity and stability at this point in the political dis­course and arrangement for Nigeria and for encourag­ing confidence and trust.

“It will be insensitive to the point of absurdity for any leader or any politi­cal party to be toying with Muslim-Muslim or Chris­tian-Christian ticket at this juncture.

“Nigeria cannot at this stage, raise the spectre and fear of Islamisation or Christianisation. The idea of proselytisation in any form is a grave danger that must not be contemplated by any serious-minded politician at this delicate situation in Nigeria, as this time is different from any other time.”
