        Don’t waste your vote for APC – Yakubu Dogara Former Speaker House of Representatives.

        The former speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, urged every Nigerian voter not to waste their votes on the All Progressives Congress at the 2023 presidential elections.

        Dogara while speaking at a summit in Abuja, tagged ‘Meet the Church’ organised by the Nigerian National Christians Coalition (NNCC) warned Nigerians against the Muslim-Muslim ticket being flown by the party.

        The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, was expected by many to nominate a Christain as his running mate since is a Muslim.

        However, the former Lagos state governor picked a counterpart from Borno state, Kashim Shettima, a Muslim as the party’s vice-presidential candidate causing some rancour among APC leaders.

        Reacting to Tinubu’s choice of running mate, Dogara reminded the participants that the former Lagos governor ignored every warning made by the Christain Association of Nigeria over his choice of running mate.

        He also called on the church to be awake and resist the decision of the ruling party.

        He said:

        “Every Christian knows that our God does not tolerate waste. It is unchristian for the church to waste anything given to us from above as we own nothing except what is given to us from above. 

        “These warnings were not only ignored but dismissed in one fell swoop by the APC presidential candidate who strangely believes that he can build a strong, secure and viable nation-state without first forging a shared identity, vision and values for our people thereby enabling us transit from citizens of a country into a nation of people with strong shared identity and values.” 

        He added that for some Islamic clerics and Muslim leaders to condemn the same faith ticket is an indication that the church is right to have opposed the ticket.
