The camp of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has reacted to threats by a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, to mobilise northern Christians to vote against him.

Dogara had on Tuesday described the party’s Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket as one that is “doomed to end in a spectacular failure, while Lawal, on the other hand, described the same-faith ticket by the APC as a deliberate plan to further create divisions in the North.

But the Director-General of Asiwaju Tinubu-Shettima Coalition for Good Governance, Adebayo Shittu, told our correspondent that there is no cause for alarm, adding that the people concerned have no electoral value.

A spokesperson for the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, on his part, said both men merely expressed their frustration, which he said was normal for concerned party members.
