Ohanaeze Ndigbo spoke following the controversy generated by APC's Muslim-Muslim ticket.
The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has condemned the decision of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to fly a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
According to Ohanaeze, the decision shows that APC is not bothered about the peaceful co-existence of Nigerians and the fragile unity of the nation.
The Vice President-General of the organisation, Chief Damian Okeke-Ogene, stated this while addressing reporters in Awka, the Anambra State capital on Thursday.
Okeke-Ogene said the ruling APC decision has undermined the efforts of well-meaning Nigerians who have continued to bridge the gap of religious differences and promoted ethnic harmonious co-existence in the country.
It will be recalled that the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday in Daura, Katsina State, announced the choice of former Borno State Governor, Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate.
The announcement effectively confirmed the decision by the ruling party to field a Muslim-Muslim ticket for the 2023 presidential race despite a good section of Nigerians rejecting the idea.
It has also attracted a barrage of reactions from concerned Nigerians, religious groups and socio-cultural organisations both on and off social media.
