Muslim-Muslim Ticket Has Failed Nigerians – Sharia Council

Published

on

President, Supreme Council for Sharia in Nigeria (SCSN), AbdurRasheed Hadiyyatullah, has said the same faith ticket that brought President Bola Tinubu to power in the last General Elections has not made any positive change in the lives of Nigerians.

Hadiyyatullah, in an interview with journalists, yesterday, on the sidelines of a national conference organised by the council, said despite the enormous support received by the President during the poll, Nigerians have not enjoyed dividends of democracy since he came to power.

The event had the theme, “Matters Arising from 2023 Election and Associated Socio-Economic Challenges.”Recall that Tinubu, who was the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), adopted the Muslim-Muslim ticket when he picked Kashim Shettima as his running mate.

Hadiyyatullah, who said the reason many Nigerians supported the same faith ticket was to see how it could engender development in the country, maintained that nothing has been achieved for the past seven months.

He said: “Nigeria today is too bad. What we were buying at N200 before is N2000 now. We have scarcity of naira and unemployment is escalating. Nigerians are not enjoying the new government. I don’t want to go personal but the Sharia council helped the Muslim-Muslim ticket to be successful. We campaigned and supported this government until it came to being, but we are suffering.

We are not making any progress. The reason for the Muslim-Muslim ticket was to progress, triumph, succeed and to have a good government, but we didn’t have anything.”

The cleric advised ministers, who are not ready to work for the good of the nation to resign and allow honest Nigerians take their place.

BUT in his remarks, former Governor of Zamfara State, Ahmed Sani Yerima, urged Nigerians to support the present administration, saying last week’s Supreme Court judgment was a testament to the character of the President.

According to him, the President refused to interfere in the judgment because he is a democrat.Yerima said: “Mr. President has said that he is going to undertake a reform of the electoral system. He is going to present a bill on that to the National Assembly because it is the work of the National Assembly to review the happenings in elections from time to time. They are from various constituencies and they know what has transpired.
