APC’s spokesman has said that APC , which has its members across the country, cannot afford to imagine any singular religious affiliation.
Speaking in a telephone yesterday, Moh ammed explained that of the 25 Interim National Executive Committee membership, 18 are Muslims; 17 are Christians.
He warned religious bigots and their official sponsors against setting the country on fire through sponsored religious disharmony.
The APC spokesman said no party in Nigeria can survive on religion, adding that it is stupid to tar the APC with a religious paint when the party has not conducted its national convention.
“The APC is just six months old after the merger. Our party is a broad-based party from all religions,” Mohammed said.
He accused the Presidency of sponsoring Yusuf Mamman to denigrate the APC, stressing that “anybody that knows Yusuf Mamman’s history will not be surprised at whatever he says.”
Cautioning President Goodluck Jonathan not to set Nigeria on fire with religion, Mohammed noted that his (Jonathan’s) association with Mamman was an evidence of the President’s desperation.
Mohammed said the APC would reflect the nation’s religious diversity during its national convention.
He promised that during its convention, APC would reflect religious tolerance.
