truly:


In Lagos and most states in the South, this is not true
Infact the Nigerian Stock Exchange has formed the habit of fixing meetings at 1pm on Fridays



Christians started it

CAN president said in 2013 that they were treated like second class citizens
When they said it, there was no Muslim minister from the entire South in Jonathan's cabinet
BTW - When PDP was governing in Osun State, Both Oyinlola and His deputy Erelu Obada were Christians
Nobody knew because Muslims don't usually make noise about such things

They have repeated this claim of being second class citizens this year
The new CAN president said no matter what happens Christians will continue to wear Church robe to school
CAN never saw anything wrong with the school uniform because they don't wear church robe to CHRISTIAN PRIVATE school

The noise is about stopping Muslims, not about Christians wanting to wear church attire to school
They also said we cannot practise Islamic Banking


in the north, workers do work half day on Fridays. in lagos, jumat is observed at one ish in the afternoon. I don't know of other southern states.

I will support their work free on Fridays provided they will start work on Sundays. Atleast they can't add Sunday as a free day.
Making common sense!

Fridays and Sundays are ok!

another ignorant post


Work starts on Sundays in most Arab countries ... So, Sundays are not work free days. Even in Israel, Friday is work free day.


Nigeria is not a christian nation either. Sunday shouldn't be a work free day.

sure you are. I am too. Bar the friday holiday claim. He said some things that ordinarily our brothers from the other divide (CAN) would use to claim an islamization motive. I believe most of them knew that we have more christians as ministers but they decided to overlook that as a form of christianization agenda. All his points are not bull whatever.

We want the whole day to worship God

The Director of Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, Ishaq Akintola, has called for ‘fair treatment’ between Christians and Muslims in Nigeria.
The professor of Islamic Eschatology said Nigeria is not a secular state as according to him, it does not recognize religion.

In a chat with the Punch, Akintola said, “I still insist Nigeria is not a secular state. It does not recognise any religion at all. An example is the Sallah holidays. Although Christians used to enjoy Christmas and other holidays, there was no Sallah holiday for Muslims on Eid el-Fitr and Eid el-Kabir days during the colonial days. We wrenched that from our oppressors’ hands after a long struggle.

“Another example where freedom has come our way is where Nigerian Christians compelled Muslims to operate Christian financial system with its riba (interest) which is haram (forbidden) for Muslims, yet they refused to allow Muslims to practise the Islamic banking until a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi (now Emir of Kano), belled the cat by introducing Islamic banking.

“What exactly do I mean? Nigerian Christians have been enjoying everything they need since the British took over the country and colonised it. They have the Christian common law while they object to Muslims having Shariah. They enjoy Christo-Western education while they restrict Muslim children’s access to Islamic education. Christians are free to do whatever they like on Sundays but Muslims are chained to their workplaces on Fridays. That chain must break. Freedom is our cry.

“The government supports both Christian and Muslim pilgrimages. Christian and Muslim prayers are said at official functions. The preamble of the Nigerian Constitution leans heavily on God. So, we are a multi-religious nation. It is when Christian leaders want to pull the wool over our eyes that they claim that Nigeria is a secular country.

“We must widen the horizon of the quest for self-determination. They hold Christian court or church marriage whose certificate is recognised by law whereas mosque marriage certificate is not recognised. Christian schoolchildren use Christian school uniforms but Muslim children are disallowed from using the hijab. Muslim women are denied driving licences and international passports in Nigeria on account of their use of hijab.

“There is an urgent need to straighten this lopsided system. It is not working. Nigerian Muslims still remain oppressed today because they have yet to be emancipated in the four examples above. There are more areas of oppression. But there are one or two aspects where the Muslims have been liberated.

“So you can see that it is all about struggling for liberation. It is like a master-slave affair. Those who sit on the necks of Muslims are reluctant to set them free. But we will get there whether the oppressor likes it or not. It is interesting to note that Christians know that a Muslim commits a sin each time he collects or gives riba yet they never freely allowed it. What do you call that? Do we love our neighbours?

“Do you call that freedom of religion? Isn’t there some element of selfishness in that? Didn’t Jesus teach loving the neighbour? I remember that a particular bishop from the East led his followers in a public demonstration against the introduction of Islamic banking. Ridiculous, isn’t it?

“As for the claim that Muslims are being favoured by the present administration, that is large-scale falsehood. Even Nigerian toddlers know that Buhari is religion-blind. He is not a fanatic. He just wants to fix Nigeria.

“How has the present administration favoured Muslims? The facts are at our fingertips. Take the South-West as an example: there are six states there and each has a minister. Only Babatunde Fashola and Adebayo Shittu are Muslims. The rest are Christians. Let CAN tell us if that is not so. Do you call two out of six a favour? And that is just a tip of the iceberg in Buhari’s administration.

“The parastatals are replete with Christian chief executives. But Muslims are not complaining. Nigeria now has about 35 ministers out of which only 17 are Muslims. Tell me how the present administration has favoured Muslims. Is CAN using mathematics or mathemagic?

“Personally, I believe that we are cutting our nose to spite our face in this country. We should allow government to pick the best candidates for positions in order to get maximum performance. We should not always be thinking of religious or ethnic leaning. Muslims have tried as much as possible to maintain this principle but CAN is always making a noise because of its grip on the press,” Akintola noted.

Stop being a hypocrite..

I guess Saturday is also for Christians. These sort of logics is what makes up bigots. Religion this and that whereas nations are developing and moving forward. Some Christmas worship during the week. Should such days be also allocated as work free days? The day we outgrow these insignificant tantrums and be more nationalistic, that day we truly begin to build a nation. People like you annoy me. I had such shallow mentality, but one can outgrow them. Muslims and Christians are making advancements in research, medicine, science and technology and this insignificant Ishaq is making noise over nothing.

I don't understand, should we ask Christians who don't go to church to forfeit their rights to stay at home on Sundays
Or Christians who don't fast during lenten period to come to work on Easter Monday?
Or should be excommunicated?

What exactly are you saying?
Are you saying the government should now be enforcing religious injunctions simply because Muslims want to have a day to worship like Christians have always had?
