There are two major Islamic sects in the world – Sunni Muslims and Shia or Shiites Muslims. President Buhari is a Sunni Muslim.
The Sunnis are headed by Saudi Arabia while the Shiites are headed by Iran.
Sunni Muslims and Shiites Muslims are constantly at war with each other. They dislike themselves to a fault.
What separates both Muslims are their beliefs.
President Buhari and a majority of Nigerian Muslims are Sunni.
That was why the President signed an accord with Saudi Arabia to join the Sunni coalition of Armies.
It was for this reason that Pakistan sold us some military planes.
It is partly for this reason that the Nigerian government, under president Buhari, has used brute force against EL Zakzaky.
El Zakzaky is the leader of Shiite Muslims in Nigeria.
That was also the reason why Iran barked on Nigeria when the military [neutralized] hundreds of Shiites Muslims in Kaduna State.
Sunni Muslims, including Saudi Arabia, forbids the celebration of Eid-el-Maulud.
Eid-el-Maulud is the birthday celebration of the birth of Prophet Mohamed.
It is haram to celebrate it anywhere in Sunni Islam.
So here is the question: why does President Buhari and other Nigerian Sunni Muslims celebrate Eid-el-Maulud?
Only Shiites Muslims and other splinter Muslim sects celebrate Eid-el-Maulud.
If the President so hates the Shiite movement, why celebrate their feast? It is haram, an abomination to celebrate it.
It is as bad as a Sunni Muslim eating pig or not fasting during the month of Ramadan.
According to President Buhari, “We use the memorable occasion of Eid-el-Maulud to reflect on our current challenges.
“I urge you not to lose faith in the ability of this administration to make a difference in the lives of our people.
“The 2017 Budget proposals will contain measures that we are confident will get the nation out of its economic woods.”
We call on the President to retrace his steps and return to the teachings of the prophet.
