This shows how Nigeria has been divided across religious lines.

Already it has started in ilorin simply because dey disagree with new yr and u want Islamic new yr they went raping innocent girls. Muric would not condemn this act because its islamic though to rape abi? why must it b ISLAM everytime. My opinion is simple pastors need to start equipping d church too, imagine if we have AKs in church will this uncircumcised philistines attack us.
nothing started from Ilorin ,stop saying what you don't know or sure of,the thugs attacked both Christian and Muslim gatherings that night because of carnival.

This man is surely an illiterate! Shame on him. Did he see the way Islamic countries celebrated new year? Did he see the display in U.A.E? You see black man problem? Oga you are a mistake! Humanity over religion! End of year celebrations and new year celebration is not subject to religion.

The holidays in Nigeria had already been split equally, what do you want again? Five (5) days for Muslim holidays (2 days Eidul Adha, 2 days Eidul Fitri and 1 day Moulud Nabbiy) and another five (5) days for the Christians (2 days Christmas and boxing days, 2 days Easther and 1 day new year).

Their religion claimed to be archaic by writing with slates reciting d Koran, sitting on a mat in d mosque etc but what do we see now? They now do white wedding,cut cakes n even sits on chairs now, they now hold crusades, they now write with pen n use laptops n even social medias yet it was haram to them funniest of all is they even read d bible n borrow so much from d bible.....Pls muric jihadists convert gently to Christianity you ve been yearning for n have d peace of Christ or go back to your stone age archaic lifestyles n stop trying to be like Christians for d gates of Hell can never prevail against d church of Christ....

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!

Director,
Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC)

yousouphe:
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.

You seem to be confusing Ishaq Oloyede with this bigoted idiot who I wonder where he got his professorship from...

And as for Hijiri calendar or whatever,the Gregorian calendar is universally used,if Nigeria was a Muslim country they can celebrate it because China also celebrates their own Chinese new year but they can be excused because they are predominantly Buddhists but in a secular country like Nigeria it's absolutely stupid so read up before you quote me.

Nigeria is not a Muslim country.

Some years ago, this man was asking for Fridays as work - free days. Now, he is demanding for 1st Muharram as a Public Holiday. God will help us in this country, Amen.

He is mad and should be locked for national security reasons.

I wish there can be profound association of African Traditional Religions practitioners pushing forward their holidays, rights and national quota.
