Muslim-Muslim Ticket Major Reason I Parted ‘Political Company’ With Tinubu in 2007, Says Atiku

“My fundamental by disagreement with Asiwaju since 2007 was on the issue of Muslim-Muslim ticket that was my fundamental disagreement and departure from Asiwaju.

“Together with Asiwaju, we formed ACN and I was given a ticket in Lagos and he insisted to be my running mate and I said no, I am not going to have a Muslim-Muslim ticket and because of that he switched his support to late Umaru Yar’Adua and that was a departing point, of course.

“It is also a fact that when Buhari emerged in Lagos in 2015 that I also opposed a Muslim-Muslim ticket, I opposed it and my opposition actually reinforced the decision of President Buhari to pick a Christian running mate.

” So, I have along opposed that. I don’t believe in that, I don’t believe it is right for a Country like Nigeria that is a multi-ethnic, multi religious. There should be balancing of interests whether religious or otherwise”
