2023 Presidency: Tinubu/ Shettima Ticket,Team Selection- Bishop Kukah
The Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Mathew Hassan Kukah, Catholic has played down reactions that greeted the announcement of former Borno State governor ,Senator Kassim Shettima as Runningmate to the All Progressives Congress(APC) Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) saying ““this is what you call team selection and everybody will choose depending on what they think will give them a fair chance. So people will take responsibility for the choices they have made. For me, it is not something to lose sleep over.
The outspoken clergy in a statement personally signed by him said “If people feel unhappy with the kind of choices that have been made, that is why we are democrats, you can’t force it. We outsiders cannot force a choice of any candidate.
“It is now left for you to look at the choices that have been made. And there is no guarantee that all Christians will vote for Christians and all Muslims will vote for Muslims.” Kukah said
