Nigeria’s presidential frontrunner Bola Tinubu on has picked Kashim Shettima, a Muslim senator and former governor of the Borno state as his presidential running mate. The move by Tinubu, who is also Muslim, breaks with the past practice where presidential candidates from major political parties have chosen running mates from a different religion to foster unity in the country. The BBC, however reports that Christian organizations in Nigeria have pledged to vote against the ruling All Progressive Congress party and has warned the main presidential candidates against fielding Muslim-Muslim tickets for the February 2023 election.
