Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose yesterday accused President Muhammadu Buhari of mapping ways towards making Nigeria an Islamic nation. Fayose made the allegations while delivering a speech at the inter-denominational thanksgiving held in Port-Harcourt to celebrate the victory of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike after the Supreme Court ruling.
Governor Fayose, who referred to himself as Peter, the rock who cannot be harmed by anyone, announced to the crowd that he had a secret to reveal. He asked those present if he should reveal the big secret about the Buhari led, APC government. After the crowd yelled that he should reveal it, Fayose said: â€œThey have started subtle moves to make Nigeria an Islamic nation, but God will stop them. This was done in 1984, it failed, it would fail again.â€
To underline an earlier boast that he could not be intimidated by the ruling party, Fayose further stated: â€œI am not far away, I am in Ekiti. I am Ayo Fayose, Peter the rock, if you hit me you will be in trouble. If I hit you, you will be in trouble.â€ To substantiate his claim about the Presidentâ€™s plan to make Nigeria an Islamic nation, Fayose said: â€œWhy did five of them go to Saudi Arabia to wait for our man there (referring to President Buhari and state governors), if they donâ€™t have agenda. â€œThe agenda is coming small small, but we will resist it. Nigeria is a free nation where we proclaim the name of Jesus Christ freely, and we believe in Allah for those who are muslims. This nation will not be taken for an Islamic nation,â€ Fayose said. As a closing remark, the Ekiti State governor went on to declare and â€œdecreeâ€ the return of a PDP-led government in 2019.
