In a state like Kaduna, same faith ticket would not be proper. There­fore, re­li­gion and eth­nic­ity should be taken into cog­ni­sance in the se­lec­tion of run­ning mate. A politi­cian needs the sup­port of all and sundry, there­fore he/she should carry ev­ery­one along. This gives his reign the re­quired le­git­i­macy. There­fore, what is hap­pen­ing in a state like Plateau, where it is al­ways same faith ticket, is not good for our democ­racy. How­ever, states like Kano, Katsina and oth­ers can af­ford same faith, same eth­nic­ity tick­ets.
