Former House of Representatives speaker, Yakubu Dogara, has backed the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) which rejected the Muslim-Muslim ticket of All Progressives Congress (APC).
He claimed the position of CAN is the position of God as adopting a Muslim-Muslim ticket in a diverse country like Nigeria is a recipe for disunity and disaster.
He spoke, yesterday, at the 12th general assembly and leadership transition ceremony and symposium on the role of Christian women and youths in politics, organised by CAN in Abuja.
“The position taken by CAN is not only CAN’ s position, it is not only the position of notable Christian leaders like Babachir David Lawal, the former secretary to the government of the federation and many others who have spoken against it, it is also God’s position because we serve the God of justice, our God is righteous, our God is the author of diversity, and He wants as diverse as we are to come together.
“So, CAN’s position, as much as it is a righteous position, it is the position of all of us who love righteousness, justice, diversity and are working to harness it for the advancement of this country.
