The All Progressives Congress led administration has been warned by the Imo State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria over adopting a Muslim/Muslim ticket for the leaders of the 9th National Assembly.
The Secretary of CAN in the state, Divine Eches, stated this in a statement that was released during the weekend in Owerri.
According to him, most key positions in the country are currently occupied by Muslims, some of which include: the Army; Nigerian Customs; Department of State Security Services; the Police; Immigration service; the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC); Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB); office of the Chief Justice of Nigeria; National Intelligence Agency (NIA) amongst others.
The CAN Secretary stated that any effort to put Muslims in all key positions is a plot to Islamize Nigeria.
Eches took the opportunity to challenge incoming Christian members of the National Assembly to resist the plan.
The CAN scribe said, “We should watch out for a grand plot at the National Assembly to have a Muslim/ Muslim Ticket for House of Reps and a Muslim/Muslim Ticket for the Senate, because a woman is known by the Religion of her husband.”
“I call on all Christian National Assembly members to rise up to the occasion and stop by God’s means the evil plot to finally hand over our nation to the Islam.”
He stated that the Christian lawmakers are not only elected to protect the interest of their people but to also protect that of Christians.
He said, “For this purpose and other legislative reasons, you were elected to represent your people and God.”
“I appeal to Church leaders to pray, preach and teach against this, speak out against this and educate our Christian politicians on the dangers of this plot.”
Eches called on the All Progressives led administration not to take Christians for granted.
He said “I call on the APC led Federal Government not to take for granted, the silent and calm disposition of Nigerian Christians, as this will seriously destroy the Image of APC and place the party as a regional and religious political party which must not return to power come 2023.”
He stated that this will be the first time the Muslim/Muslim ticket will be place forward for the National Assembly offices.
He said “We are only left with a choice for the first time since 1999 to choose between a Muslim and a Muslim both at the Presidential election and the National Assembly principal offices.”
Eches noted that past Presidents, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo; Alhaji Umaru Musa Yar’Adua; Dr Goodluck Jonathan all worked with Speakers and Senate Presidents from other regions and religions.
