President Muhammadu Buhari
The apex Igbo sociocultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for attending a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Countries in Saudi Arabia less than 24 hours after his swearing-in for a second- term.
In a statement by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, the group said Buhari owed Nigerians an explanation.
Ohanaeze said, “Why immediate attendance of Organisation of Islamic Countries, OIC, meeting in Saudi Arabia a day after his swearing in. Mr President Buhari owes Nigerians that explanation.’’
Ohanaeze said, “This is a secular country and a leader that wants to be a mullah or fanatic is free to resign rather than plunge us into a religious crisis.”
The group also attacked the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, for travelling to Saudi Arabia for lesser Hajj.
The statement said, “Femi Gbajabiamila, a born again Christian turned into Muslim for political reasons is dangerous to our democracy.
“Although people have a right to change their religion, the sudden change from a Christian to a Muslim and his umrah journey to Mecca just to be Speaker is a bad omen.
“Can we trust such a character who can change his faith for power sake?”
