2023 Presidency: 2023: I Didn’t Ask Tinubu To Go for Muslim-Muslim Ticket – Hope Uzodinma
Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has denied asking the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu to pick a Muslim as his running mate for the 2023 presidential election.
According to a statement signed by the Imo State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, Uzodimma had in no time advocated such a position.
Emelumba accused those he described as mischief makers of having twisted the governor’s statement.
According to the statement: “How can this position amount to advocating for Muslim/Muslim presidential ticket?”
It added: “His Excellency made it clear that there is no part of the Constitution where religion is a factor in choosing the President or his vice,”
