Recall that the pair, along with numerous other Christian leaders in the North, openly criticized the slate.

In an interview with Daily Trust, Lawal claimed that although though they were in Minna to welcome retired general Abdulsalami, who had recently arrived from a medical trip, they also took advantage of the occasion to pay a visit to general Babangida.

Lawal said;

“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.

“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.”

On if he is mulling an exit from the APC, the former SGF said;

“Apart from the BoT and NEC, myself 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 Has he rescinded that pronouncement?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.”

In 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.”
