Osinbajo Slams Christian Leaders For Shunning Unity
“Part of the problem is the failure of Christian leadership to take its rightful place. We focus our minds on something we call the Islamic agenda. We look for it everywhere as if we are looking for demons.
“But where is the Christian agenda. Are we not entitled to one? We are too divided as Christians to have an agenda. The key to the unity and progress of Nigeria is in the church.”
The Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo said this during the Greater Nigeria Pastors Conference convened by Apostle Wale Adefarasin and Rev. Abayomi Kasali
He further said that it is impossible for anyone to Islamise Nigeria, as claimed by Christian interests.
He explained that the recent uproar over the country’s subscription to Sukuk Bonds was not justified.
The Federal Government’s N100bn Sukuk (Islamic bond), which it plans to use for road construction, became a target of criticism by some Christian leaders in the country, who believed the government was committing the country to an Islamic financial hold.
According to him, there were no plans to Islamise Nigeria.
"Nigeria became a member of the Islamic Development Bank in 2005 and the first person to sit as director of the bank was Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
"The second person to sit as a director is the current Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, and both of them are Christians.
"So, when people talk about Islamic agenda, sometimes I am lost".
