General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman has said President Muhammadu Buhari will not succeed in his attempt to Islamise Nigeria.
Suleman said this while reacting to the removal of Christian Religious Knowledge as a subject of study from the secondary school curriculum.
In a statement issued by Phrank Shaibu, spokesman of the church on Sunday, Suleman said the removal has confirmed Buhari’s agenda to Islamise Nigeria.
“The new curriculum which is the brain-child of the Nigerian Educational Research Council and which is mischievously crafted to force Islamic Studies down the throat of non adherents is unjust, discriminatory, a subtle attempt at islamisation, and therefore unacceptable.
“This is a well orchestrated and articulated plot. Let nobody try to fool Nigerians that it was a mistake or a coincidence. Why is it that CRK would be removed as a subject to be studied from the secondary school curriculum while Islamic/Arabic studies is retained? This is a plan from hell and it shall not stand,” he declared.
He added that it was a coincidence that the move was made when Fulani herdsmen have continued to kill Nigerians and some Northern youths asked Igbos to leave their region.
“Over 7000 people have been killed by these Fulani herdsmen with our security forces unable to stop the bloodshed. So called Arewa youths backed by some discredited elders have also issued a treasonable ultimatum to Igbo people without any reprisals from the Buhari government. So, is it a coincidence that Christian Religious Knowledge has been expunged from the school curriculum?” he asked.
“This evil policy must be reversed immediately. What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Christian Religious Knowledge (CRK) must be restored to the school curriculum. And I’m happy that the CAN has taken up the battle to ensure that those who seek to banish our faith do not succeed. We will continue to speak out until Satan and his agents are put to shame”, he added.
