With the recent inauguration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, some Christians within the party have called for a total boycott of the ruling party at the 2023 presidential election.

The Christians during a press conference in Abuja on Sunday, October 23, reiterated their rejection of a Muslim-Muslim ticket by the APC.

Led by their general secretary, Lukas Bako, the Christians under the aegis of the Concerned Northern APC Christians Forum insisted that the ruling party must jettison its current combination of Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima to get the support of Christians.

He noted that under the present arrangement, the Christians would suffer untold persecution under an APC government in Nigeria.

Bako added that the Northern Christians stand with the position of the Christian Association of Nigeria.

He said:

“Christians in the APC Presidential Campaign Council are betrayers who have sold their conscience in return for a plate of porridge.”

The group, therefore, urged the APC leadership to do needful by replacing the APC vice Presidential Candidate with a Christian before the commencement of the campaigns.

They, however, advised Christians in the APC council to resign honourably in protest until the needful is done.

His words:

“APC must come to terms with the reality that Northern Christians were indeed notable stakeholders in the APC, and their contributions to the growth and development of the party over the years cannot be overemphasized.”

He also said that the Northern APC Christians Forum is concerned that the APC leadership’s lack of respect for the Christians in Northern Nigeria has reached an alarming crescendo, which could pass for a deliberate attempt to delineate the Christian population in Northern Nigeria.

“Our concern also stems from the fact that the action of the APC can breed distrust amongst the religious groupings in the country.

“It must be stated that with the Muslim-Muslim Ticket, the Northern Christians have been marginalized and without recourse to the implication of such actions in the overall psyche of the people.”

Bako noted:

“The Concerned Northern APC Christians Forum is demanding unequivocally that the Presidential Candidate and the APC leadership should do the needful by replacing the APC vice Presidential Candidate with a Christian before the commencement of the campaigns.

“The APC leadership must desist from treating Northern Christians as inconsequential in the country’s scheme of affairs, hence the choice of the Muslim-Muslim Ticket.

“The danger of such misgiving could ignite a religious crisis in the country, hence the need for caution from the leadership of the APC.”
