Islamization agenda is real — professors, Governors, others

The Federal Government have been accused of pursuing an Islamization agenda of the entire country.

The call came from ‘Igbo Leaders of Thought’ as the group cited incessant [neutralization] of Christians by Fulani herdsmen.

They also cited President Buhari’s feet dragging in dealing with group as a sign of connivance is the Islamization plan.

The group dismissed the ‘Electoral Reform Committee,’ set up by President Buhari last week, saying that “It has nothing to do with us.”

Among those who attended the meeting included Prof. Ben Nwabueze, SAN, former Governor of Anambra State, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Chief Nduka Eya, Prof. Elochukwu Amucheazi, Senator Anyim Ude and Chief Marie Okwo.

Others are Chief Enechi Onyia; Prof. Race Achara, Prof. Chukwuemeka Ike; Archbishop Emeritus of the Awka Diocese of the Anglican Communion, Most Rev. Maxwell Anikwenwa; Prof. Lawrence Ocho, and Prof. Chiweite Ejike.

Chairman of the Leaders of Thought, Prof Ben Nwabueze, said that the “Islamization agenda of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is real.

“This is a very crucial meeting for us because we have not met for more than a year.

“And if you look at our agenda, such critical issues for discussion, issues like Islamization agenda and its impact on the unity of the country.

“Islamization agenda is real, it’s not something that somebody has just conjured up.

“It’s there. And it’s being implemented gradually.

“Look at the security agencies; every aspect of security, Muslims are in control in its entirety.

“They are doing it methodically; the way they are going about its implementation.

“Look at Fulani herdsmen menace, it’s all part of their agenda.

“The silencing of the Biafran agitation is all part of the plan. They want to box the Igbo, to box them so that they will say, ah we are pulling out.

“And then, they will launch the final solution to the Igbo problem.

“Our people must not play into their hands. All these agitations should have a defined objective.

“What do you want? Self-determination, okay; that is the best thing, use it as a cover, don’t come out openly and say you are agitating because you want the sovereign state of Biafra.

“Sovereign state of Biafra within sovereign Nigeria? You have to be extremely tactful.

“On the Islamization thing, we have listed a number of positions which will be embodied in the communiqué that will come out eventually.

“Our governors should meet and say we don’t want this anymore.

“Let them go somewhere, let them open ahhhh… whatever they call it (ranches). But not here, yes these are the things we want,” Nwabueze said.
