Buhari’s Islamization Agenda is real – Igbo Leaders … he is implementing it gradually
A group known as the Igbo Leaders of Thought has accused the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari of allowing Fulani herdsmen to kill Nigerians because of his alleged Islamization Agenda pursuit to islamise the country.
Making this remark Wednesday at the Zodiac Hotel in Enugu, the Chairman of the Igbo Leaders of Thought, Prof Ben Nwabueze said the dominance of the country’s security outfits leadership by Muslims, was part of a grand plan by President Muhammad Buhari to Islamise Nigeria regardless of its constitutional provisions which stipulates freedom of religion.
Prof Ben Nwabueze, a renowned constitutional lawyer, was almost close to tears over what has become of Nigeria under Buhari.
He dismissed the Ken Nnamani-led electoral reform committee set up by the President last week, saying “it has nothing to do with us.”
Speaking at the opening of the event, he stressed that the “Islamisation agenda of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is real.”
Nwabueze added, “This is a very crucial meeting for us because we have not met for more than a year. And if you look at our agenda, such critical issues for discussion, issues like Islamisation agenda and its impact on the unity of the country.
“Islamisation agenda is real, it’s not something that somebody has just conjured up. It’s there. And it’s being implemented gradually.
“Look at the security agencies; every aspect of security , Muslims are in control in its entirety. They are doing it methodically; the way they are going about its implementation. Look at Fulani herdsmen menace, it is part of it.”
Nwabueze, while speaking on the agitation for Biafra, said, the agitators should be tactful by demanding for self-determination and not for Biafra Republic.
“Our people must not play into their hands. All these agitations, I support the agitation, but define your objective.
“What do you want? Self-determination, okay; that is the best thing, use it as a cover, don’t come out openly and say you are agitating because you want the sovereign state of Biafra. Sovereign state of Biafra within sovereign Nigeria? You have to be extremely tactful.
“On the Islamisation thing, we have listed a number of positions which will be embodied in the communiqué that will come out eventually. The Fulani herdsmen, our governors should meet and say we don’t want this anymore, let them go somewhere, let them open ahhhh… whatever they call it (ranches). But not here, yes these are the things we want.”
The meeting which was the first by the group in the past one year was attended by notable Igbo leaders.
