Buhari won’t Islamise Nigeria, says SGF

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, described the allegation as a dummy being sold by enemies of Nigeria who wanted to plunge the country into a religious war.
The SSG said this in his keynote address delivered at a two-day peace summit organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria (Northern Region).
The summit was with the theme, “Sustainable peace and security in northern Nigeria as a panacea for development.”
Among those who attended the summit were the Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh; Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung; and Deputy Governor of Adamawa State, Martins Babale.
Mustapha, in his address, said Christians in the country only needed to counter the alleged plan by Buhari with their own Christian agenda.
“Nobody can kill the gospel,” he said.
Nigerian Christians, he said, should embrace the principles and teachings of Christ which, he noted, were about love among humanity, irrespective of religious affiliations.
He said, “Where is our agenda as Christians? Let us have a Christian agenda that will promote love, including loving the Muslims; we should go out and make disciples of all nations and stop operating under the siege mentality.
“I must correct the dummy been sold by some rumour-mongers about the issue of Islamising Nigeria; nobody can (Islamise Nigeria). I want the Church to know that nobody can kill the gospel, let’s continue to be our brother’s keepers at all times and continue to preach peace.”
Mustapha gave the assurance that the current security challenges in Nigeria would soon be over as the Federal Government was doing everything possible to tackle the menace.
