Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Matthew Hassan Kukah has turned around to condemn the APC Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket which he skirted in his earlier response..

Kukah who earlier said a party is free to choose a winning pair according to its permutation now wondered if Muslims would accept a Christian-Christian presidential ticket.
