The Vice President-elect of Nigeria, Alhaji Kashim Shettima has advised against having the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives of Nigeria come from the same religion as the President and Vice President.

According to the report on Sahara Reporters, the Nigerian Politician mentioned this during a meeting with some of the House of Representatives members-elect on Friday, 12th of May 2023.

In his words, he said: “The circumstance could validate the negative narrative of the Islamisation agenda of Nigeria. The leadership of the forthcoming national assembly must be inclusive because the stability of the nation is much more important than any other consideration.

What we are trying to avoid is a situation whereby the number one citizen, number two citizen, the number three citizen, the number four citizen, and the number four citizen are all of the same faith. That will lend credence, and validate the negative narrative of the Islamisation agenda of Nigeria.

This is why my principal, a fair-minded leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is more inclined towards having the number three citizen from the South/south or the south-east. Even in the current circumstance that we find ourselves in, the stability of the nation is much more important than any other consideration.”
