No One Can Islamize Nigeria – Sultan Of Sokoto


The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has faulted the claims flying around that some people are concluding plans to Islamize Nigeria, saying nobody is capable of achieving that.

The President of the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs explained that no country has ever survive a religious war, therefore, Christians and Muslims in Nigeria must imbibe the culture of peace and peaceful co-existence.

The monarch also appealed to Christians and Muslims across the world to desist from making comments insinuating that anyone was out to Islamise Nigeria.

He continued by stressing the need for Nigerians to set aside ethno-religious differences and be committed towards peace and development of the nation.

While noting that both Christians and Muslims have always lived together since Nigeria’s amalgamation, the Islamic leader recommended dialogue as the best option to address some of the socio-political challenges in the country.
