"Good Governance Has Nothing To Do With Religion" - Azuatalam by Nobody: 10:49pm On Jul 03, 2014
The Chairman, Buhari Vanguard, Jasper Azuatalam, has criticized the comments made by the former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, about General Buhari on the spate of insurgency in the country.
He stated that what Nigerians were looking for was not religious bias but better governance which “people in power have failed to provide”.
He stated that former Aviation Minister lacks understanding of what General Buhari was saying when mentioning the Sharia and its application to Muslim religion in the country.
He noted that General Buhari is a Muslim and has every right to practice his religion which he said doesn’t stop the Christians from practicing their own religion, “when a Christian says I’ll work hard to spread the gospel, if you are a Christian you won’t see anything wrong with that.
“When a Muslim says I’m going to do well to spread the tentacles of Sharia which is the principle of Islam you think otherwise because you don’t understand what he is saying.”
Speaking as a guest on Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, Mr. Azuatalam further explained that the comment by Buhari, saying “Nigerians and Muslims should only vote for people that will protect their own interest”, was not part of a campaign message but was in line with what Nigerians need in terms of good governance such as increased educational standards, good roads, infrastructural developments amongst others.
“When people are in power and they fail to provide these things they seem to distort facts and divert the attention” from good governance to religion, maintaining that Buhari’s statements were not part of his campaign message but reflections of “day to day way of life”.
He stressed that the issue of Boko Haram came up during former president, Olusegun Obasanjo’s era, and “Obasanjo realized that the issue was mismanaged, so he went back to Boko Haram to appease them but unfortunately the issue had escalated.
“Personally at that point I advocated that the Boko Haram should have dialogue and should be talked to (because) at that stage it was a Nigerian issue but now they are terrorists”, he said. He asked that the Nigerian Government should standup and fight the insurgents.

the reason why the state of nation is undeveloped politically socio-economically and other wise was due to the greed and short sighted approach of the military regime (buhari obasanjo babagida and co)

And now he look to score a political goal in a religious way by spewing trash

In as much as the explanations are nerve soothing since it's coming from old cargoes like buhari and co who I'm still not convince about his innocence on boko haram emergence, me think the success and future of this country is not in any of our past leader's hand Jonathan buhari or any oda

Agreed....for me is a no!

The problem with we Nigerian is that we don't reason with ourselves. What I think in this type of situation is that most of Christian has has grow personal hatred for Islam. Look at the issue of Islamic banking, I was so mad with the way people were just shouting, saying the bank will be sponsoring terrorism, what did a bank have in coonection with terrorist? Well, thank God for the like of pastor Tunde Bakare. For example, if Michael did something wrong, you won't hear anything but if it was a way round, you will hear a Muslim man killed his wife in Lagos, no one will mention his name. Islam forever.

Tell them ooo, down hear religion is every thing.Too much religion and very little faith.
Every pastor has a different interpretation of the same verse, and some miss guided Muslims want to arm twist the whole country with bomb.

Chai. Its good to watch what you say. Words are like eggs, once dropped, they cannot be retracted. How many years ago did Buhari make that statement, and it still haunts him.

At least Buhari tried to save the country. Shagari's government left the country's finances in shambles.

My question here is:
1 How will christians propagate christianity, and what has history taught us regarding the way christians advance christianity in Nigeria, is it through violence, or holy war, or via peaceful means.
2 How will muslim propagate islam/sharia, and what has history also taught us regarding the way muslims advance islam, is it through sword, or holy war or peaceful message.

Now buhari is talking that he will encourage islam/sharia to spread tentacles, and this man is comparing it to a nominal christian saying he wil make christianity spread. That is a wrong comparison, buhari is a leader, that has political ambition, if the comparison has been to a christian leader that also has political ambitions, then there wil be basis for comparison.
