The All Progressives Congress (APC) has responded to a statement made by Dele Momodu, Director of Strategic Communications, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council pertaining to the ruling party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.
Momodu disclosed in the statement that the north would not be duped into voting for a phony Muslim next month,stressing that Tinubu was unpopular in most northern states.
Dele, who insisted on Atiku winning the presidency in the February polls, said: “The north will not vote a “fake Muslim” in the name of a pretentious and mischievous Muslim/Muslim ticket. The scam is dead on arrival.”
Howbeit, Festus Keyamo, spokesman for the APC Presidential Campaign Council, described the opposition party as desperate for power in a response issued on Monday.
Keyamo noted that, Nigeria has progressed beyond pettiness, and the north will surprise the opposition next month.
“These people have gone extremely low and it shows the level of their desperation for power. What they have done is complete heresy. All they are trying to do is to wipe up religious sentiments to sway votes, but it is not going to work”, Keyamo said.
“All these years that Asiwaju has been giving alms, they did not say he was a fake Muslim. He has given more alms than Atiku. He performed Hajj all the time and they didn’t see him as a fake Muslim. How can a Christian from the South say that the North will not vote for another Muslim because he is not a proper Muslim?
“If a Muslim from the North rises today and says a Christian in the South is not a proper Christian, what will happen? Of course, there will be a wide condemnation of such. Nigerians have gone beyond this pettiness, and they will show that on February 25
