Abuja – The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Anthony Cardinal Okogie has taken a swipe at the recent curriculum crisis in some schools in South West, describing it as a “plot to make a particular religious group more prominent than another”.
According to The Sun, vowed that plans to Islamize the country would not succeed.
"I am seeing something that has not yet manifested. They are secretly trying to make Nigeria an Islamic State. But that cannot happen. During my tenure as the President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), then Head of State, General Ibrahim Babangida tried it by going to Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC), meeting secretly and claimed to be an observer. As a Head of state of a country, how could he have gone to such meeting without anyone following him? Who sent him there? And the people he went to meet did not ask him who sent him. But at the end, his plans failed," he was quoted as saying.
Okogie’s remarks came following tensions in Osun state after what could have developed into religious crises.
According to Premium Times, security agencies is the state held an emergency meeting on Thursday to find ways of curtailing possible fallouts of an ongoing controversy over the use of hijab in public schools.
