ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani, has disagreed with the claim by Christian elders under the aegis of the National Christian Elders’ Forum that there is an underground move to launch an Islamic holy war with the aim of Islamising Nigeria.
Sani in a Facebook post on Friday night said that the Christian leaders were unfair to President Muhammadu Buhari by accusing his administration of having such clandestine agenda.
Sani said that such accusation was not needed at this time as it is capable worsening the ethno-religious crisis in the country.
But Sani’s argument was punctured by a former Minister of Aviation Fani-Kayode Shehu Sani, Disagree Over Christian Leaders’ Accusation of Jihad Against Buhari, who in his Facebook post on Sunday endorsed the position of the Christian leaders .
Fani-Kayode argued that it was those who killed Christians and practice “stealth jihad” who were bound to set the country on fire.
Some retired military generals and eminent Christian elders, under the aegis of the NCEF, had at a meeting on Thursday observed that Nigeria was gradually drifting towards a precipice of needless conflict that could culminate in another war if not well checked and managed.
