Nigerians are still leaving in the fear of ‘Islamization’ – a trend that gained prominence during the 2015 presidential election as an act of propaganda against the President Muhammadu Buhari candidacy under the banner of the All Progressives Congress.
The worrisome issue, according to the Vanguard has again reared its ugly head again in public discuss following the dominance of the country’s security outfits by the Muslims.
On Wednesday, this dominance was identified as a grand plan by President Muhammadu Buhari to Islamise Nigeria regardless of its constitutional provisions which stipulates freedom of religion.
This revelation was made known by the renowned constitutional lawyer, Prof Ben Nwabueze who was almost close to tears over what has become of Nigeria under Buhari.
Nwabueze said, while fielding questions from newsmen having hurried out of a meeting of Igbo Leader of Thought, ILT, in Enugu, that,” This is a very crucial meeting for us because we have not met for more than a year. And if you look at our agenda, such critical issues for discussion, issues like Islamisation agenda and its impact on the unity of the country.
“Islamisation agenda is real, it’s not something that somebody has just conjured up, it’s there. And it’s been implemented gradually. Look at the security agencies; every aspect of security islamists are in control in its entirety. They are methodically, the way they are going about its implementation. Look at Fulani herdsmen menace, it is part of it.”
