A former Presidential candidate and a chieftain of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, Mr. Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, has  urged elected  leaders to desist from using ethno religious platforms to ventilate their concerns on policy matters.

In a statement released by his media office in Abuja, he advised political leaders to utilise the internal machinery of their partiee to ventilate their opinions and resolve their differences instead of retreating to ethnic and religious conclaves to inflame passion  and division.

Olawepo-Hashim who was speaking while being received by Mai Mala Buni, the APC Caretaker Committee  Chairman and Governor of Yobe State in his residence in Abuja on Thursday, recalled that it has never been the tradition in the politics of the country for leaders to be aggregating as Southern leaders or Northern leaders.
