Popular Islamic preacher, Sheikh Ibrahim Aliyu Kaduna has lambasted northern governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for backing former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for presidency.
The cleric berated the governors for picking Tinubu, who he described as unhealthy and not physically fit.
He also kicked against the APC and Tinubu picking a northern Christian as his running mate for the 2023 presidential election.
In a viral video, Sheikh Aliyu Kaduna vowed to mobilise against the ruling party if it picks a northern Christians as vice presidential candidate, adding that the APC is sure to lose the election.
He accused northern APC governors of allegedly trading the destiny of Muslims in the Northern region.
“Northern governors, especially Muslims amongst you, are treacherous because you’ve sold our destiny; and God will punish you for that.
“You set aside a critical Islamic requirement because the first criterion for choosing a leader in Islam is that the person must be healthy and physically fit.
“Now your second error will be to pair him [Tinubu] with a Christian from our region. This will be disastrous because we would mobilise the people to reject the ticket at the polling units” daily post quoted him as saying.
