A former Personal Assistant to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, advised the All Progressive Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, to consider competence over religion in choosing his running mate.
Bashir said this in a tweet on his official Twitter handle as Nigerians anticipate the former governor of Lagos State’s decision on his deputy ahead of the 2023 elections.
He tweeted; “Dear Asiwaju, what matter the most is the competency of the person you are going to choose as your deputy, if he/she is a Nigerian with the capacity to help you achieve your great plans for this country, I am sure majority won’t bother whether he/she is a Christian or Muslim.”
Tinubu is currently searching for a suitable running mate amidst INEC’s deadline and the agitation against a Muslim-Muslim candidate.
