The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, has reacted to a recent accusation by the Igbo Leaders of Thought accusing President Buhari’s administration of plotting to Islamise Nigeria, ThisDay reports.
The Sultan said he was worried that people who were supposed to be elder state men could make such provocative comments.

His words: “I am always worried when Nigerians who are supposed to be elder statesmen make provocative comments about this government trying to Islamise Nigeria.

“I keep on asking how? How do you Islamise a country like Nigeria that is probably 80 million Muslims (in population) but we agreed that we are 50-50.

“Are you going to invite America? Somebody so naive even said the visit of the United States Secretary of State was to strengthen the Islamisation of programme of the leadership of the country.”

The Sultan also stated that it is wrong to ascribe the violence associated with Fulani herdsmen to an Islamic agenda.

“The problem with herdsmen and farmers is purely about economy. The herdsman wants food for his cattle, the farmer wants his farm produce to feed his family.

“We have tried to broker peace with Fulanis and Tivs in Nasarawa and Benue states. I have been to Makurdi four times for such meetings.

“So people should stop making this noise about Islamisation and herdsmen being used to islamise the country and so many negative things” the Sultan said.
