*talks Of Islamization And The Gullibility Of Some Nigerians* by Zeemam: 11:56am On Feb 06, 2019
I laugh hard when I read articles claiming the "Islamization" of Nigeria by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Quick history class: when Buhari was head of State and he had all the powers without the constraints of the National Assembly, he did not Islamize Nigeria. That was in 1984. Buhari even refused to join OIC. It was Babangida that joined OIC. It meant that they had to remove Buhari to join OIC when he refused to assent to the idea as Head of State.
Still on history please, just one more: when 12 States in Nigeria 2002 thereabout declared Sharia in their States guess who was President, Obasanjo. But all those lying to us about Islamization now were quiet abi?

Now this Buhari who allegedly wants to Islamize Nigeria has cooks, his ADC and his drivers as Christians.
All those with whom he ran-all his running mates ever were all Christians including two pastors!

I also remember that it is these same miscreants that said the same of the former Osun state governor, Rauf Aregbesola.

Ogbeni Aregbesola has served his two-terms in Osun and the state was not Islamized, it’s going to be the same story for Nigeria but let us leave politics aside and delve into this ludicrous issue once, and for all.

Yes, President Buhari is a Muslim and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is a Christian, yet they want to Islamize Nigeria. When was this agenda conceived? Was it in 2015? Or was it already in the offing? If it was already in the offing, then it begs the question of whether former President Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan were involved.

The two of them ruled Nigeria for 14 years out of the 16 years that PDP ruled since the country returned to democracy. Why didn’t they halt the plan? Or better still, why didn’t they attempt to Christianize Nigeria? Or could they not have sacked all these Muslims during their time in office?

The truth is, these men and women have built their careers over the decades, and they have risen to these positions by virtue of the fact that they have earned it. During Obasanjo's administration, he appointed IGP Musiliu Smith as the first police boss and then Mustapha Balogun, both Muslims but during Buhari’s government it was Solomon Arase who was first appointed, a Christian.

No noise was made about this until Ibrahim Idris was appointed and Islamization noise started. During Jonathan's government, Hafiz Ringim, Mohammed Dikko Abubakar and Suleiman Abba all served as IGPs. They were all Muslims but no noise of Islamization.

It is idiotic to say that Nigeria will be Islamized by anyone or any group. When Christian universities were springing up left, right and center, no one said they were preparing Christians to be radical or to Christianize Nigeria.
But if it’s a Muslim bank, just one Muslim bank, we will not rest. When will we stop deceiving ourselves? President Buhari has made 159 Board appointments since 2015 and of that figure, 89 are Christians. Look at the Ministers and you will find a balance as well.

Let’s stop disrespecting these noble men and women by rubbishing their careers and religion. They have earned it and they worked their way to the top as professionals in their fields.

For those who understand hierarchy and the military, you will agree that President Buhari cannot sack all the Generals if they were Christians because he wants to appoint a Muslim Captain as the Chief of Army Staff.

It’s time we put this divisive evil to rest and respect ourselves as Nigerians. Let's act like decent and reasonable human beings for once.

Thank you.
