Controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has described the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as “Wayo”.
Wayo, a Hausa language means deceit. The emergence of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kasim Shettima as APC candidates in the coming presidential election is being met with controversy with views rife that it was an injustice to Christians.
Gumi lent his voice to the disapprobation of the ticket on Monday while speaking to journalists in Kaduna, saying, “The Muslim-Muslim ticket is unnecessary. We all know, all these politicians are looking for votes. The Muslim-Muslim ticket is, let me use Hausa language, is wayo (deceit). It is not religion.
“Whether it will work or not, I don’t want to prophesise, but there are a lot hurdles. In fact, all the political parties have hurdles. Muslim-Muslim ticket is going to be a laboratory test for others to emulate or not.”
