We're not false alarmists, CAN tells Osinbajo


BY BENEDICT ODINAKA writing for ODOGWU MEDIA.
The leadership of the Chris­tian Association of Nige­ria (CAN) has advised the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osin­bajo to stop discrediting the or­ganisation in his resolve to douse religious tension in Nigeria and win the heart of the government of President Muhammadu Bu­hari.

The Vice President had last week said at a public function that there was no agenda to Is­lamise Nigeria and that no one could possibly do so, just as he berated Christian leaders for raising alarm on the issue.
Reacting, the President of CAN, His Eminence, Rev Dr Samson Olasupo Ayokunle said the Vice President was talking tongue in cheeks, reiterating that the plot by the Government of President Muhammadu Buhari to Islamise Nigeria was real, urg­ing Osinbajo to cross-check his facts well before making public remarks on the issue next time.

In a Statement signed by his Special Assistant (Media and Communications), Pastor Ade­bayo Oladeji, Ayokunle said the Vice President has no fact before jumping into his conclusion.
He said most Christian lead­ers in Nigeria were taken aback by the remarks credited to Osinbajo in the media and had sought the intervention of the leadership of CAN to set the re­cord straight with documented facts pointing towards the verity of the plot by the present gov­ernment to Islamise Nigeria.
The CAN President said Osinbajo was indeed, oblivious of certain facts, stressing that the body of Christians in Nige­ria have long been aware of the grand plot to Islamise Africa, with Nigeria as a major focus, stressing that Nigerian govern­ment has been working in tan­dem with the Organisation Of Islamic Countries (OIC) and Islam In Africa Organisation to achieve this.
Reeling into archives, CAN President said, “The OIC met in London in 1983 with a follow-up meeting in Nigeria in 1989 and had issued a communiqué to Islamize Africa with Nigeria capturing a great attention. This is a public knowledge while facts could be obtained from Wikipe­dia with links on OIC’s Confer­ence in London, 1983 and Abuja Declaration of 1989.
“It is also a matter of fact that Nigeria was later made an observer member of the body (OIC) through General Ibra­him Badamosi Babangida. Under General Sani Abacha, another Muslim leader, Nigeria was made a full member in to­tal violation of the constitution that the nation is secular and our government should not be reli­giously partisan.
“From then on, conscious ef­forts were on to draw Nigeria into joining different Islamic organisations in keeping with the resolutions of OIC & Islam in Africa Organisation (IAO). (See their communiqué tagged ‘Abuja Declaration of 1989).’
Ayokunle said that CAN has not been opposing, and will not oppose Islamic evangelism in any part of Nigeria, even if done with the support of the gov­ernment since Christians also evangelise, but that the Chris­tian body will never support any government to make Islam a State religion under any guise.
He stressed: “We are not op­posed to Islamic evangelism by any Muslim group if done with a peaceful motive. The Christians also exercise their constitutional rights to do so through revivals and gospel ral­lies. But we are opposed to the government of Nigeria adopt­ing Islamic resolutions aimed towards a compelling of this country, contrary to the dictates of the constitution”
