The Deputy National Missioner of Nawair-ud-Deeen Society of Nigeria, Sheikh AbdulMajeed Ayinla, has urged Nigerians to imbibe religious tolerance ahead of the 2023 elections and promote peace.
He noted that there has been a lot of ruckus concerning the Muslim-Muslim, Christian-Christian tickets in political parties for the presidential election, adding that this should not be the concern of Nigerians.
According to him, this is only a political game and has nothing to do with the development of Nigeria.
“There are some states in Nigeria where both the governor and deputy are of the same religion but that doesn’t mean people of the other religions are not in that state.
“My advice is that regardless of the religion, the most important thing is that we should move closer to God and appeal to Him to give us a good leader who will have the interest of Nigerians in mind and make things easy for us in the country,” he said.
He urged religious bodies to pray for the betterment of the country and not be used against one another.
