APC Muslim-Muslim Ticket Designed To Oppress, Kill, and Eliminate – Ex-SGF, Babachir.
The Former scribe of the Nigerian Federal Government has said that the APC Muslim-Muslim ticket is designed to oppress, kill and eliminate northern Christians from the political and economic system of the country.
The former SGF made the comment in a telephone interview with Daily Trust while he was in Minna, to greet retired General Abdulsalami, who just returned to the country from a medical trip, and also used the opportunity to visit General Babangida.
The report said the issue of the Muslim-Muslim ticket was discussed with the General.
“But there is no way we will be there without the Muslim-Muslim ticket issue coming up. It came up and naturally, we discussed it, Babachir said when asked if he discussed the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC with General Babangida.
Speaking further, he likened the decision of the APC to fly the Muslim-Muslim ticket to one meant to oppress, kill and eliminate Northern Christians in the political equation.
“For us Christians in the North, the Muslim-Muslim ticket is existential. It is designed to oppress, kill and eliminate us from the political and economic systems. There is no other reason. It was done to isolate us from any political, economic and educational benefits of this country.
“As a card-carrying member of the APC, it is the PVC that counts in this matter and not APC membership because the party’s card will not vote,” he said.
Asked whether they are planning to leave the APC, Babachir said, apart from the BoT and NEC, he and Dogara are members of all other organs of the party.
“We are APC, but even at that, you can choose what you want.”
“Don’t forget that at the last campaign; even President Buhari said we should vote for the candidates of our choice. Has he rescinded that pronouncement? Party members will vote for their choice candidates,” Babachir said.
On his relationship with Tinubu after rejecting his choice of Shettima, he said, “Since I publicly opposed the ticket, Tinubu and I have not spoken. When two friends meet at a junction, they can decide to take different ways.”
