The spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, has described the Muslim-Muslim ticket as a fraud.

Baba-Ahmed lamented that Nigerians have allowed politicians to poison their faith using religion.

Featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today, the NEF spokesman said politicians are using religion to destroy Nigeria’s political system.

Baba-Ahmed said, “We had a Muslim president for eight years in this country. The North has never been as bad as it. It did nothing to the North.

“What did El-Rufai do for the Muslims? He demolished their houses on the very last day he was leaving, 95 percent of the houses he demolished belonged to Muslims. So of what value has the Muslim-Muslim ticket been to them?

“Muslim-Muslim ticket is a fraud; politicians have poisoned our faith; the earlier we open our eyes the better. They are destroying our political system by bringing faith into it.

“They are deceiving the people into believing that the faith of the people into thinking that the faith of a politician represents a plus or minus to you, it doesn’t.

“For all you know, you could be a Muslim and not pray five times a day, you could be a Christian and have horrible habits.”
