The Catholic Bishop told Newsmen on Thursday that the ticket was a setback to the country’s national integration.

Despite popular opinion, APC presidential candidate Bola Tinubu chose as his running mate.

Tinubu is a Muslim from the Southwest, whereas Shettima is from the North.

Kukah, on the other hand, questioned whether Muslims would accept a Christian-Christian presidential ticket.

He stated that Nigerians will wait to hear what they have to say once the campaign begins.

“However, moving forward, the question I have asked my Muslim friends, particularly those from northern Nigeria, is a simple one: ‘Would Muslims in Nigeria or northern Nigeria be willing to make the same concession that Christians made in 1984 and 1993?” he said.

“As a Christian, I find this completely repugnant.” It is not acceptable to me, but that is the APC’s decision as a party. Perhaps when the campaign begins, we will be able to hear what people have to say.”
