I urge you to receive sense!

Being a muslim dominated nation does not mean no one in the country will celebrate New year.

If islamic calendar does not benefit you does not mean that others does not benefit from it.

Come and buy sense in the north if you need 1.

Happy new year anyways

How many holidays do we want to observe then? I believe the holiday given for maolud Nabiyy is enough,why clamour for 1st Muharram,we are not using the islamic calendar so i do not see any sense here.
MURIC and oversabi.

Why do you then say Nigeria is Islamised!

You should cover your face in shame. Every week there is a two-day christo-western holidays but you always complain of muslims trying to Islamised nigeria.

Crying more than the bereaved.

Hello,

You don't get the point he is making!
Calendars we use in the world is 2(Gregorian and Hijri calendar) Solar and lunar based calendars respectively, In islam we use Hijri calendar and also have a new year.

He's also pushing that Hijri calendar new year ought to be celebrated too with a public holiday. Understand the point before criticism and insulting anyone.
Meanwhile he is a professor and very intelligent. what degree have you attained to insult him ?
He is Jamb registrar if you don't know.

deco22:
Which type of Oshogbo weed are this people taking,New year is celebrated not only by Christians abi when did they hear it's a Christian holiday.

North Korea that evens bans religion celebrated it,China celebrated it,even Iraq celebrated it.

What sort of bigoted unintelligent professor is this?

Here they come, your calendar read backward, not recognized everywhere and there's nothing like Christian calendar. New Year is not a Christian holiday, everybody celebrate it as the start of a New Year.

Even Arab nations do celebrate, I don't know why you guys make fuse about useless things. In my area, I see some cool headed Muslims celebrating, killing chickens...

PRESS RELEASE

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) observes that today’s holiday fully consolidated the two-day Christmas holiday and enabled Nigerian Christians to kick off the 2018 Christo-Western Gregorian calendar

However, conscious Nigerian Muslims, particularly stakeholders in the welfare of Muslims as well as the growth and development of Islam in Nigeria, approached today’s holiday with mixed feelings. First and foremost, we express happiness for our Christian neighbours who were able to spend the day giving full practice, expression and manifestation of their faith. On the other hand, we experienced a feeling of despair, isolation and marginalization. Our feeling of marginalization arises from the reality of the Nigerian situation which has conditioned Muslims in the country for religious segregation and subjected them to spiritual apartheid.

Here we are today, enjoying January 1st holiday which was declared by the Federal Government (FG) of Nigeria in recognition of the Christo-Western Gregorian calendar. But the same FG which recognizes this Christian calendar is yet to declare 1st Muharram a public holiday in recognition of the Islamic calendar despite several petitions and appeals to it dating back to the 60s. Surprisingly, some people still complain that Nigeria is Islamised!
