The Sultan: Is Nigeria a Secular or Islamic State?

NIGERIA CONSTITUTIONALLY IS A SECULAR NOT MULTI-RELIGIOUS COUNTRY: FACTUALLY IT IS AN ISLAMIC STATE

Introduction

The Saturday Guardian, August 20, 2016, had the front page captioned “Nobody Can Islamize Nigeria, says Sultan”. The main story on page two of the paper with another caption, “Nobody Can Turn Nigeria to Islamic State” reads: “The Sultan of Sokoto has told Nigerians to forget the fears or suspicion of a grand plan to turn Nigeria into an Islamic State.” Abubakar pointed out yesterday, that it is impossible for a multi-religious country like Nigeria to be converted into a monolithic religious state.” He continued, “It is not possible to Islamize Nigeria. If God had wanted, he would have created all Christians or all Muslims. We are not secular but a multi-religious state because the people are so religious. We must respect one another and understand the tenets of the two religions.”

Discriminatory Appointments against Non-Muslims in Nigeria

Islamist Jihadists of the Hausa, Fulani and Kanuri Ethnic Nationalities, who are Negroid immigrants to Nigeria, are pushing the nation to an implosion. It is therefore imperative that the remaining 386 Ethnic Nationalities of Nigeria should, as a matter of priority, convene a Conference to demonstrate to the few Islamist Jihadists of the three Ethnic Nationalities the grave danger of Islamism as a system of governance.  Nigerians are reminded that the present distress in the nation is not an act of God but man-made. The brazen and audacious imposition of Islamist Jihadists into key positions in the country is not an expression of religious piety but a deliberate manipulation of religion for cultural and political domination by three Ethnic Groups. This Agenda commenced in 1975 after the overthrow of General Gowon. The Islamist Jihadists are a violent and domineering strain of Islam rejected by mainstream Muslims.

BISHOP KELLY OF WESTERN NIGERIA BY MICHAEL O’SHEA.

 

 
NIGERIA, 1921-1926

In November 1921, after a good holiday, Pat bade farewell to his mother and family at Tristaun and made his way to Dublin and then Liverpool. With him were classmate John Cadogan, Cork, and Michael O’Donohuem Laois; both were two years younger than Pat who was twenty-seven. In Liverpool they spent a few days at the African Missions transit house on Ulett Road, while waiting on the departure of the Elder Dempster liner bound for West Africa. In the city they bought suitable clothing and footwear for the tropics, a pith helmet for protection against the sun, and quinine for Malaria. On boarding ship, the purser directed them to first class cabins; the 1918 Provincial Assembly had decided that the confreres should travel first class. The trio appreciated the comfort, but were a bit ill-at-ease at the thought of rubbing shoulders with colonial nobs in the first class dining hall. As the ship got under way, the new sailors in the Roman collars clutched the rail and spoke quietly as they watched the land recede.

Political Opposition Sponsorship Of Killings In Nigeria: Questions Buhari Government Must Answer

(Intersociety, Nigeria: 7th July 2018)-The central Government of Nigeria headed by Mr. Muhammadu Buhari-a retired major general; has continued to make inflammatory, diversionary, deceitful, threatening and other injurious statements over the orgy of ethno-religious and state killings in Nigeria. These are followed by complicit government policies and conducts, which see the killings escalating and worsening in the country day in day out.

Despite several expert recommendations and pieces of advice given or offered to the central Government of Nigeria arising from research findings of various local and international research and investigative groups on how to end the ongoing killings by Government and non state actor Jihadist armed groups in Middle Belt and old Eastern Nigeria and fish out the perpetrators and bring them to justice; the Buhari Administration has not only failed woefully to heed or act on such independent expert recommendations, but also clannishly chosen to remain inescapable complicit in same.

US Congress Expresses Over Killings by Fulani Herdsmen, Urges Buhari to Speak Out

The Chairman of the US Congressional House Subcommittee on Global Human Rights and a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Mr. Chris Smith, has requested that President Buhari should publicly speak out in condemnation of mass killings of Middle Belt Christian farmers in their ancestral homelands by the MACBAN-sponsored Fulani herdsmen militia.

The committee on religious freedom, which shall be constituted in late July 2018, shall focus on collating reports of mass extrajudicial killings throughout Nigeria since the outset of the Muhammadu Buhari's presidency.

Bishop: Militants’ master plan to wipe out Christianity

  • Who is funding terror groups killing Christians?
  • Why can’t the government protect lives?

By John Pontifex and Murcadha O Flaherty

ISLAMIST nomadic herdsmen are waging a violent campaign to eradicate Christianity from Nigeria’s Middle Belt region – and the Government is doing very little to stop them – according to a bishop determined to speak up for his frightened people. 

Buhari An Enemy Of Democracy... He's Failed Both Home And Abroad, Says Human Rights Lawyer

“Buhari's government has not only failed at home, it has also failed internationally and exported the failures," he said. "Buhari is best known for accusing people in the media and not convict them in the court.”


BY SAHARAREPORTERS,
NEW YORK
MAY 30, 2018



International human rights lawyer, Emmanuel Ogebe, has labelled President Muhammadu Buhari "an enemy of democracy".

Speaking to newsmen during the celebration of 2018 democracy day in Lagos, Ogebe accused the Buhari administration of championing anti-democratics acts, including repression of opposition politicians.

Emasculating & Humiliating The Senate: In Whose Interest?

Since the proclamation of the 8th Assembly, I have noticed a consistent effort to emasculate the National Assembly, particularly the Senate. This matter has assumed an alarming intensity in the recent weeks and I am getting really worried for our democracy. 

 First effort, was the challenge to the power of the Senate to confirm certain executive appointments. Both the constitution and other extant laws gave powers to the Senate to approve, confirm or ratify specific appointments from ministerial through Commissions, Security service leadership, Boards and Agency leadership. But we have seen some effort to deny this power of the Senate. The classical and subsisting case is the refusal of President Muhammadu Buhari to replace Ibrahim Magu as the Chairman of EFCC after the Senate rejected his nomination twice due to adverse reports from a sister Security agency-DSS. Three years down the line, the President has ignored the Senate and has kept Magu on the job, effectively rendering the Senate irrelevant and impotent.

SPECIAL REPORT: The Killings Continue

Since I arrived here the day before yesterday, the attacks have continued daily.

Three people returning from the same funeral I attended for the murdered priests were brutally butchered by the Killer Herdsman on Tuesday.

In the governor’s speech I included in my last update, 492 people had been killed by the Herdsmen. By evening of the same day, the death toll had risen to 495 from the latest attack.
