If We Have A Muslim-Muslim President And VP, It’s Impossible To Have Another Muslim Senator–Shettima



The National Director of the Arewa Consultative Youth Forum (ACYF), Alhaji Yerima Shettima, has been quite critical of the Nigerian state in various forums.

In this interview with Arise TV, followed by Sunday Sun in Lagos, he concluded his thoughts on the contentious issue of the 10th Senate and the race for the chairmanship of the Red House.

Shettima reiterated his plea to Senator Orji Uzor Kalu to become the Senate President and why Senator Abdulaziz Yari, a former governor of Zamfara State and a strong contender for the position, should give way to Senator Kalu.

The question is very simple. If you know my previous stand on things or my predecessors, you know that I am always principled, and I just felt that in this critical time, this is a country where every citizen has equal rights, and I strongly felt that there is more good in a country with fewer divisions than a country with more divisions. And don’t forget vigorously that before 2014, we were more united; in 2015, we were more united compared to today. We are more divided today, and the country is in total disarray. I am worried about the country,and I just felt strongly that we cannot have a country with so much doubt in the minds of Nigerians, where many things are not right. I thought that one can rule only if there is a peaceful environment where there is love for each other, and only then can the government work hard. And on that note, don’t forget that the 2023 election raised other issues as well. The election came with a lot of ambiguity, and when I say intelligent, I mean that there is that serious dichotomy between Muslims and Christians that came with the election and also the divisions between the ethnic groups that came with the election. And at this critical time, all efforts must be made, all hands must be on deck to ensure that we unite the country together so that at the end of the day, we will have one common country called Nigeria. and thought came from. If we have a Muslim-Muslim president and vice president, then again, it is impossible to expect us to think of having another Muslim Senator as the number three citizen of Nigeria. I think in the spirit of equality, justice, and fairness, we also need to look inward and look to other parts of the country to find number three, probably the southeast.
