You Are Free to Resign Rather Than Plunge Nigeria Into Religious Crisis, Ohanaeze Tells Buhari
- Buhari owes Nigerians explanation about his trip to Saudi Arabia immediately.
- Says Gbajabiamila’s journey to Mecca in his bid to become speaker was a bad omen.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo has called for President Muhammadu Buhari’s resignation if he wants to become a religious fanatic.
This is in reaction to the president’s alliance with the Organisation for Islamic Affairs (OIC) in a summit held in Saudi Arabia.
The group in a statement signed by Chuks Ibegbu, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary said Buhari owes Nigerians explanation about his trip to Saudi Arabia immediately after the swearing-in ceremony for his second term in office.
“Why immediate attendance of Organisation of Islamic Countries, OIC, meeting in Saudi Arabia a day after his swearing in? Mr President Buhari owes Nigerians that explanation.
“This is a secular country and a leader that wants to be a mullah or fanatic is free to resign rather than plunge us into a religious crisis,” the group said.
Speaking on Majority Leader’s visit to Saudi Arabia for lesser Hajj, the group said his journey to Mecca in his bid to become speaker was a bad omen.
While saying Gbajabiamila’s journey to Mecca in his bid to become speaker spells doom for Nigeria’s democracy, the group stressed that Gbajabiamila, a born again Christian turned into Muslim for political reasons is dangerous to Nigeria’s democracy.
“Although, people have a right to change their religion, the sudden change from a Christian to a Muslim and his umrah journey to Mecca just to be Speaker is a bad omen.
“Can we trust such a character who can change his faith for power sake?”
