Rally Has A Political Undertone, Say MURIC, Akintola

The Executive Secretary of the Muslim Ummah of Southwest Nigeria (MUSWEN), Prof Muslih Yahya and Director of Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) Prof Is-haq Lakin Akintola have berated the organisers of the Christians rally, saying it has political undertone. Prof Yahya warned the leadership of Christians in the country to stop acting as opposition to the Federal government. “They are politicising the insecurity issue on one part and also diving the nation along religious line. This is unhealthy for our nation. That rally is more political than religious. Christian leaders behave more like opposition than religious people. It looks like they have an agenda that is different from protesting over the security issues. There is no sincerity in the rally,” he said. According to him, religi...

The Chairman of Northern Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Rev.

Adamawa Gov To Drop His Christian Deputy For A Muslim In 2019

Jibrilla Bindow, Governor of Adamawa State, is under pressure to ditch his Christian deputy and pick a fellow Muslim as running mate in 2019. A source very close to the Governor told SaharaReporters on Monday that recent happenings in the state may have constrained the Governor to take the religious tilt. The religious consideration was suggested at a meeting held by the Governor's cabinet members, who saw last week’s protest against herdsmen by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) as an affront on Islam. The source said the Governor had become disenchanted with the Christian community in the state and was considering a fellow Muslim to deputise for him. It was learnt that Bindow’s cabinet plans to leverage on a “thorough demographic survey” detailing the numerical streng...
