SAN FRANCISCO, February 27, (THEWILL) – The Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose has alleged that the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is working towards making Nigeria an Islamic nation as Buhari purportedly did in 1984 when he was the Head of State.
Fayose made this claim on Saturday while delivering a speech at the inter–denominational thanksgiving held in Port Harcourt to celebrate the validation of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike’s election by the Supreme Court.
Describing himself as the biblical Peter, the rock who cannot be harmed by anyone, Fayose announced to the crowd that he had a secret to reveal and asked if he should go ahead to reveal a big secret about the Buhari-led APC government.
When the enthusiastic crowd urged him on, Fayose alleged: “They have started subtle moves to make Nigeria an Islamic nation, but God will stop them. This was done in 1984, it failed, it would fail again.”
In substantiating his claim about the President’s plan to make Nigeria an Islamic nation, the Governor asked: “Why did five of them go to Saudi Arabia to wait for our man there (referring to President Buhari and state governors), if they don’t have agenda.
“The agenda is coming small small, but we will resist it. Nigeria is a free nation where we proclaim the name of Jesus Christ freely, and we believe in Allah for those who are muslims. This nation will not be taken for an Islamic nation,” he said.
While insisting that he cannot be intimidated by the ruling All Progressives Congress, Fayose said: “I am not far away, I am in Ekiti. I am Ayo Fayose, Peter the rock, if you hit me you will be in trouble. If I hit you, you will be in trouble.”
