Muslim-Muslim Or Christian-Christian Ticket Insensitive Now-Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said it will be insensitive to the point of absurdity for any leader or any political party to be toying with Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket at this juncture.
Obasanjo in a statement issued yesterday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, said Nigeria cannot, at this stage, raise the spectre and fear of Islamisation or Christianisation.
According to him, the idea of proselytisation in any form is a grave danger that must not be contemplated by any serious-minded politician at this delicate situation in Nigeria, as this time is different from any other time.
He, therefore, added that “sensitivity is a necessary ingredient for enhancement of peace, security and stability at this point in the political discourse and arrangement for Nigeria and for the encouraging confidence and trust.”
He noted that “disregarding the fact that there are fears that need to be allayed at this point will amount not only to insensitivity of the highest order but will also amount to very bad politics indeed.”
