Osun’s Christian-Christian Ticket, APC's Muslim-Muslim Ticket, and Religion in Yorubaland
By Farooq Kperogi
Just as a lot of the Muslims who endorse APC's Muslim-Muslim president ticket would declare a jihad against a Christian-Christian presidential ticket by a ruling party, a lot of the Christians who oppose a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket would praise a Christian-Christian presidential ticket as evidence of progress, of religious tolerance, and of the praiseworthy deemphasis of religion in politics.
You know how I know this? I’ve noticed that some of the very people who’re having fits of hysterical rage over APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket are celebrating the “religious tolerance” that Osun PDP’s "Christian-Christian" ticket symbolizes, particularly because Osun is a predominantly Muslim state.
(For the record Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke is BOTH a Christian and a Muslim. Let's just call him a "Chrislim"�)
For good measure, they throw around the sterile, mendacious cliché about religion being immaterial in Yorubaland in light of the religious ecumenicalism of the people.
Well, if religion is immaterial in Yorubaland, why would an effectively non-religious but nominal Muslim Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s choice of a northern Muslim running mate rankle so many Christians in the region this deeply?
Until recently, Tinubu didn’t even identify with Islam publicly, is married to a pastor, and ALL his children are Christians. He sees himself first as a Yoruba man before he is a nominal Muslim.
Apparently, religion “doesn’t matter” in Yorubaland only when Muslims are rendered invisible there. Then it suddenly matters when they enjoy some visibility.
Even though Muslims constitute more than 50 percent of Yorubaland's population, there will not be a single Muslim governor there after Adeleke is sworn in. (I'm sure the people of Osun who voted against their incompetent governor who happens to be a Muslim don't care, but since religion has now been centralized in political discourse we need to point this out).
The people who fought for a “Christian” governor of Lagos State (so much for “religion doesn’t matter in Yoruba land”!) would celebrate the current state of affairs as evidence of the “religious harmony in Yorubaland.”
Consequence-free invisibilization of Muslims in their region is their definition of religious “harmony.” Harmony comes when different notes synchronize, but their own harmony comes the same note!
The hypocrisy of the religious fanatics of all faiths is galling. The supreme irony is that it’s often headless, irrational fanatics who’re quick to call others bigots and fanatics for calling out their bigotry and fanaticism.

When did Osun represents Wazobia, the many face of diverse Languages, Tribes and Cultures that forms the name Nigeria ?
Mind you, this is coming in a time when there's somuch division among the rationales.
Sentiment aside, if you ask me, I will say Baba failed his first test as a Leader. Because Nigeria at this critical period is in dare need of a unifier than a conventional politician which is why many who are not Ibo's are canvassing for someone Like Obi.
I will hate to deceive myself if i was in your shoe

State level is different from national level.
Nobody complained when Abiola who was a Muslim picked Kingibe who was also a Muslim.
2023 is not 1993. Fact is that northern Muslims will never tolerate Christian Christian presidency. Bokoharam will be a child's play if it happens.
It is myopic to accuse Christians for hypocrisy.
Obasanjo, a Christian picked a Muslim.
Goodluck Jonathan, a Christian picked a Muslim.
Tinubu who is a Muslim decides to pick a Muslim because of how fanatical most northern Muslims are. Tinubu knows most northern Muslims don't see Yoruba Muslims as real Muslims. That's why he decided to pick a northern Muslim to woo some northern Muslim voters.

Kaduna and Kano Muslim- Muslim ticket nko?
These idiots still fail to realize that the peculiarities of state politics are different from that of national politics.
The last man that tried it in 1993 was made president after his death.
Vote Osinbajo or vote Peter Obi

Although I totally disagree with Dr kperogi all the time, especially when I read how he kept showing the very terrible seed of religious discord against the person of our amiable Vice president Prof Osinbajo,I have to agree with him on this article.
People don't understand there are zealots in both religious beliefs in Nigeria,but the Islamic zealots have gone more further than their Christian counterpart,the Islamic zealots has already crossed the line of decency when they resort to killing their fellow human beings whenever there's a disagreement on religious beliefs.
Anyone who isn't tolerant of the religious beliefs of his neighbor is a zealot.
For kperogi,i believe it's totally unfair and hypocritical for any body to claim it's right for a christian-christian governorship ticket in a state like osun where the Muslim population is a bit more than the Christian population but yet try to crucify the Muslim-muslim ticket of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The truth is the Southern Muslim is a minority,I don't mean the Yoruba Muslim,a Muslim in the south of Nigeria is a minority,that's why there will not be a single Muslim governor in the whole of Southern Nigeria when Governor Adeleke is sworn in.
This is a fact and reality that those throwing verbal jabs at Asiwaju must understand,pairing a southern minority with a northern minority is already a recipe for failure.....
So u know I'm voting for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu
God bless Nigeria

be it Islamic, Christianity, traditional or whatever, I think it's high time we do away with every religion because it is of no use to a nation aspiring to be prosperous in this 21st century. We should rather embrace science & technology.
