The Archbishop, Province of the Niger and Bishop of Awka Diocese of the Anglican Communion, Most Reverend Alexander Ibezim, has decried the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a plan to alienate Christians from the affairs of Nigeria.

 

Ibezim spoke to journalists in Awka yesterday, during a press conference to mark the beginning of activities marking his 60th birthday.

 

He referred to the recent unveiling of Kashim Shettima, a Muslim, by the ruling APC as it’s vice presidential candidate.

 

The APC had also elected a Muslim, Bola Tinubu as its presidential candidate, making the party’s ticket an all-Muslim affair.

 

But reacting to the development, the cleric said it was unacceptable to run an all-Muslim ticket in a secular state like Nigeria, adding that the decision amounted to persecuting Christians in Nigeria.
