Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has expressed that a Muslim-Muslim ticket in 2015 between President Muhammadu Buhari and former Lagos Governor, Bola Tinubu would have torn Nigeria apart.
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 made this remark in a post on his Twitter page on Saturday.
He 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 a historic one because a Muslim ticket would have been a deep insult to Christians and would have torn Nigeria apart.
..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.
