Fulanization of Nigeria: PFN talks on Islamization of Nigeria
The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, has come up to state its position on the Islamization of Nigeria, which is now trending after former President Obasanjo came up to say that the present adminstartion of Buhari is planning to Islamized Nigeria.
Bishop Gospel Isong, National Publicity Secretary of PFN, while speaking to reporters yesterday, said nobody can Islamize Nigeria even with the introduction of Fulani radio.
He said: “Nobody can Islamise Nigeria; it is impossible. Nigerians should not be afraid. For me, I dont think this can happen. What former President Olusegun Obasanjo said about ‘Fulanisation’ of the country is not new.
On the issue of security, Bishop Isong regreted the deteriorating security situation in the nation and likened it to what happened in Rwanda that lead to what is now called Rwanda genocide.
According to the Clergyman: “The bane of this country is social hypocrisy and political sycophancy. Nobody is honest, nobody is speaking the truth.
“Politicians have polluted the pulpit. They have penetrated the church and other religious places. The church must retrace its steps by pulling out of the political circle. The closeness is such that they cannot be separated.
“People in government should stop campaigning from the pulpit. If they have any message, they should call church leaders and talk to them.”
Isong prompted Nigerians not to despair, insisting that Nigeria still had better days in advance, after twenty years of undisturbed democracy.
