Shun Exclusionist Politics” – Atiku Frowns At Tinubu’s APC ‘Muslim-Muslim’ Ticket
The 2023 Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has called on Nigerians to shun ‘exclusionist politics’.
Abubakar, in a statement issued shortly after APC presidential Candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu announced fellow Muslim, Kashim Shettima as his running mate, admonished Nigerians not to allow ‘primordial sentiments to becloud our politics’.
The statement read; “In such a time when our country is going through a very difficult time, it is important that we do not allow any kind of primordial sentiment to becloud our politics.”
“Politics is meant to be a corrective mechanism. So, even when we are upset about the inexcusable low that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has brought us in the past seven years, we must ensure that we insulate our politics from the corrosive effect of the ruling party’s failures. A society cannot progress if its politics is convoluted.”
“Dear friend and compatriot, the journey that we have signed on to undertake together is not one that we can accomplish by threading the inglorious path of exclusionist politics. This journey, our campaign, is a rescue mission for our great country and it is a mission that must involve all Nigerians.”
“So, while our opponents might think that there is an easy road to victory in divisive politics, we must get the message across to them that Nigeria has seen the worst shade of exclusionist politics and the road ahead is the path of inclusive and unifying politics. That is what we stand for.”
“We are the Unifiers and the Bridge-builders and we represent the future of a peaceful and prosperous Nigeria.”
