Sheikh Ibrahim Aliyu Kaduna, an Islamic preacher, has issued a warning to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Bola Tinubu.
Aliyu Kaduna argued against Tinubu’s running mate being a northern Christian.
According to the Independent National Electoral Commission, presidential candidates and their political parties now have 48 hours to choose their running mates.
Aliyu Kaduna, a northern Islamic cleric, warned that if Tinubu’s running mate is a Christian from the region, the ruling party will lose the election.
The preacher also threatened to mobilize Muslims to vote against the APC candidate in the upcoming presidential election.
In a viral video, Sheikh Kaduna chastised northern governors for allegedly trading the fate of Muslims in the region for the money of a sick candidate.
He said, “Northern governors, especially Muslims amongst you, are treacherous because you’ve sold our destiny; and God will punish you for that.
“You set aside a critical Islamic requirement because the first criterion for choosing a leader in Islam is that the person must be healthy and physically fit.”
“Now your second error will be to pair him [Tinubu] with a Christian from our region. This will be disastrous because we would mobilise the people to reject the ticket at the polling units,” he added.
