The renowned Convener of COUNTRYFIRST Movement and a Patriotic Lover of the New Nigeria Project, Prof. Chris Mustapha Nwaokobia Jnr., has berated the presidential flag bearer of APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for picking a Muslim of his kind as a running mate.
In his succinct cum message-laddened piece, which he titled “THE MOMENT OF TRUTH II”, Prof. Nwaokobia described Tinubu’s choice of a Muslim running mate as an utmost act of hypocrisy and a relegation of equity, justice and fairness to the background.
Prof. Nwaokobia who described 2023 as a year for the commencement of rebuilding and re-fixing of Nigeria through a “peaceful redemptive ballot based peoples revolution”, and not for the desperate old politicians, beckoned on the Muslim Ummah to “MOVE against the desperate, knowing that Leadership in Islam is for equity, justice and fairness.” The piece reads;
“THE MOMENT OF TRUTH II.
“The arrogance and the hypocrisy of a candidate! On the one hand he says religion does not matter; that competency and capacity is key.
“Does competency not imply that he should know that his Party – APC is mirrored as a Muslim Party and thus should seek to balance the Ticket? Does capacity not imply that he should search out a competent Christian in the North to balance the Ticket?
“The Muslim Ummah must MOVE against the desperate, knowing that Leadership in Islam is for equity, justice and fairness.
“Those who, for political power, seek to rekindle our fault lines; those who, for numbers, ignore the need for brotherhood and inclusion will fail because Nigeria is bigger than an INDIVIDUAL’S LIFETIME AMBITION.
“Affliction will not prevail a second time. Now is the time to rebuild, re-fix, reshape and reset Nigeria. And the masses of our people are manifestly OBI-dient and Yus-ful to the cause that the OBI-DATT Ticket epitomizes. A NEW, JUST, FAIR, EQUITABLE AND PROSPEROUS NIGERIA IS POSSIBLE.
“A peaceful redemptive ballot based Peoples Revolution is ongoing, Compatriots. With Peter OBI And Yusuf Datti BABA AHMED… We Move, WE WIN!!!
“God Bless Nigeria.”
