The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, has called on Nigerians to ignore the controversies trailing the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress.
Akeredolu, who spoke in Akure on Wednesday, expressed confidence that the presidential Candidate of his party, Bola Tinubu, will rescue the nation from its woes.
The governor said, “Muslim-Muslim ticket has nothing to do with performance. Let’s vote for someone that can do something. The work stops at the table of the President. It is the President that you are voting for. He decides what happens. Whether it’s a Muslim/Muslim or Christian/Christian, it should not matter to us in the South because we fought for this.
“I have no doubt that given the opportunity, from what he has done in Lagos, Asiwaju Tinubu will turn things around for the better.”
Premium Politics had reported that Tinubu on Sunday, picked a former governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, who is also a Muslim as his running mate and the decision has angered the Christian community.
