A Nigeria former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has said Muslim-Muslim ticket in 2015 between President Muhammadu Buhari and Asiwaju Tinubu would have broken Nigeria up.
Fani-Kayode said this while reacting to a statement by former Governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola that Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo was responsible for truncating the Buhari-Tinubu presidential ticket in 2015.
Fani-Kayode in a post on his Twitter page on Saturday agreed that although Obasanjo spoke against it, he was the first to blow the whistle against Muslim-Muslim ticket in 2015.
According to him, his contribution in 2015 was an historic one because a Muslim ticket would have been a deep insult to Christians and would have torn Nigeria apart.
His tweet read: “Obasanjo spoke against it but I was the first. I blew the whistle before anyone else. Obasanjo spoke only after I wrote my essay warning about the dangers of a Muslim Muslim ticket.
“We must not distort history. I am proud of the role played then and I did it for Nigeria and for my faith. A Muslim Muslim ticket in 2015 would have been a deep insult to Christians and it would have torn Nigeria apart.”
