Osinbajo Speaks On Alleged Plans By Buhari To Islamize Nigeria


By Faderera Falade

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has said most of the rumours against President Muhammadu Buhari are propaganda and accusations.

Osinbajo who said this, yesterday night while responding to questions at an interactive session with Lagosians held at Muson Centre, Lagos, noted that the rumours are absurd and untrue.

Naija News understands that the interactive session tagged: “Unveiling The Truth”was organised by some Christian youths and leaders.

Participants at the session also used the opportunity to ask questions on security, economy, social welfare for the unemployed, anti-corruption fight, and timing of the TraderMoni programme.

Other questions bothered on “Next Level” slogan, farmer/herders crisis, lopsided federal appointments, Islamisation, Buhari’s commitment to addressing critical issues in the country among others.

Reacting, Osinbajo said the primary aim of the president was to address problems facing the country.
He noted that the president is impartial in addressing farmer/herders crises and has no intention at all to Islamise the country.

“President Muhammadu is possibly one of the most committed people I have ever met. He is committed to seeing that the resources of this country are used for this country.

“In general terms, we find that there is fairness in the distribution of appointments. Many of the accusations against Buhari are not true.

“Sometimes, people listen to propaganda and if we look at the facts, things are totally different. On Islamisation, first of all, it is untrue, it is propaganda.

“Anybody who complains that President Buhari is propagating Islamic agenda, how is that possible?

“A lot of these are just propaganda, never listen to these. Many of these are absurd, they are deliberate propaganda. They come from the same source. Don’t believe them. Let’s be fair,” Osinbajo said.

The vice-president, who urged Nigerians not to fear or doubt the good intention of the president, advised Nigerians to stop spreading rumours about things that never happened.
