A renowned constitutional lawyer, Prof. Ben Nwabueze raised an alarm that Islamisation of Nigeria is real through the dominance of Muslims in leadership positions of the Nigeria’s security outfits.
The Professor who grieved over what has become of the country under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari expressed his concern during a meeting of Igbo Leaders of Thought in Enugu. He claimed that in spite of the provision of the constitution, Buhari had a grand plan to Islamise the country which was the reason for the meeting.
Speaking at the meeting Nwabueze stated;
“This is a very crucial meeting for us because we have not met for more than a year. And if you look at our agenda, such critical issues for discussion issues like Islamisation agenda and its impact on the unity of the country.
“Islamisation agenda is real, it’s not something that somebody has just conjured up, it’s there. And it’s been implemented gradually. Look at the security agencies; every aspect of security Islamists are in control in its entirety. They are methodical, the way they are going about its implementation. Look at Fulani herdsmen menace, it is part of it.”
Prof. Nwabueze also said the agitation for Biafra was fueled by the government’s neglect of the region.
“The agitation for Biafra, you will appreciate what is going on, to box the Igbo, to box them so that they will say, ah we are pulling out.
“And then, they will launch the final solution to the Igbo problem. Our people must not play into their hands. All these agitations, I support the agitation, but define your objective. He advised the IPOB to acquire self-determination and be tactful in their course.
“On the Islamisation thing, we have listed a number of positions which will be embodied in the communiqué that will come out eventually.
The Professor ask the governors to meet and decide that the Fulani herdsmen should relocate to their homes where they can build ranches to avoid any more troubles and bloodshed.
