You promote conflict by claiming there’s an agenda to islamise Nigeria – Sultan tells leaders



The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III on Friday cautioned opinion leaders in the country who say there is an agenda to Islamise the country, reminding them that such unguarded statements fan the embers of conflict.

He stated this in Kaduna during the inauguration of the International Centre for Inter-Faith Peace and Harmony by Governor Nasir El-Rufai, which is co-chaired by the Sultan.

While harping on the need for peaceful coexistence among Nigerians, Abubakar stated that conflict never brings about peace, advising Nigerians to explore dialogue in settling their differences.

Speaking about statements from leaders that fan the embers of conflict, Abubakar said, “particularly the one going round that there is an agenda to Islamise Nigeria.

“Such utterances are not going to help us in any way. Rather than making such inciting claims, let us come together and see how we can come out of the religious turbulence that has continued to threaten the unity of the country.

“We are a multi-religious country because Allah designed it to be so. Let us understand each other and see one another as Nigerians, not as a Christian or a Muslim,” he added.
