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.”tweet Follow @@metrolens1
