Former speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt Honourable Yakubu Dogara revealed the positions the Muslims hold in government at the APC Northern leaders summit in Abuja.
He said "In 2015 when we were called janjaweed party, my response was usually simple. I could then say his Excellency John Oyekun was the chairman of my party and my vice presidential candidate was pastor Yemi Osinbajo.
We don't enjoy that love anymore as the President, senate president, speaker and his deputy, senate and house leader in the national assembly, national chairman of our party now, the deputy national chairman North, the presidential and the vice presidential candidate now are all Muslim. Leaving only the Christian with just the position of vice president and deputy senate president at that level whose population is fairly split between Muslims and Christians."
Do you think Asiwaju Tinubu can balance the position if he eventually win in 2023 by making sure the leadership of the national assembly are Christians as well as appointing Christians as SGF and chief of staff? Share your view.
