Nigeria can’t be Islamised – VP Yemi Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday enjoined faith-based organisations in the country to shun rumours that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari was moving to Islamise Nigeria.

He told religious leaders after receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Student Christian Movement of Nigeria (SCM) in his office, that they should dwell on facts.

Recall that before the election in 2015, Prof. Osinbajo spoke out that the All Progressives Congress (APC) was not secretly plotting to Islamise Nigeria if it won the election. He again reaffirmed that stand stressing that the rumour making the rounds about plans to make Islam the official religion of Nigeria were unfounded as the country “can’s be Islamised”. Osinbajo emphasised that it was impossible to Islamise the country given the 1999 Constitution that forbids state religion and urged religious bodies to channel their energies towards proffering solutions to the numerous challenges facing the country.

Satan often masquerades as angel of light. I know God almighty is still interested in the affairs of men. Cheers.
