TIRED OF CHRISTIAN RUNNING MATES, IT'S A MUSLIM THIS TIME - BUHARI?
"I joined partisan politics in 2002. By 2003, there were governors, there were senators, but I got the (presidential) ticket. I picked late Chuba Okadigbo. He was a Roman Catholic and an Igbo. And he was brought up politically by Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe. We were rigged out."
“In 2007, I picked Chief Umeh Ezeoke, he was an Igbo and a Roman Catholic. Again, we were rigged out. In 2011, I picked Tunde Bakare, a pastor. Again we were rigged out. So how more Christian do you want me to go in picking a running mate? I never picked a Muslim as a running mate but this time , I will.” - Muhammadu Buhari.
Icheoku says except that Muhammadu Buhari forgot that Tude Idiagbon was a Muslim. Buhari also laments that he has never been to Mecca for the past twelve years, possibly because no bank will give him loan to finance the pilgrimage? But what would this man not do to get back to Aso Rock, except that Nigerians would be the decider and early feelers shows that are not impressed with his do over.
