At Governor Nyesom Wike’s inter–denominational thanksgiving and victory celebration event that held in Port-Harcourt today, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state the only governor present, claimed in his speech that the Buhari government is taking steps towards making Nigeria an Islamic nation.
At the occasion, Fayose referred to himself as Peter the rock who cannot be harmed by anyone (It was a reference to how Jesus referred to Peter in Matthew 16: 18. “You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church and the gate of hell shall not prevail against it). In other words, he is not afraid to speak.
He, therefore, asked those present if he should reveal the big secret about the Buhari led, APC government.
After the crowd yelled that he should reveal it, Fayose said: ‘’They have started subtle moves to make Nigeria an Islamic nation, but God will stop them. This was done in 1984, it failed, it would fail again.’’
To underline an earlier boast that he could not be intimidated by the ruling party, Fayose further stated: ‘’I am not far away, I am in Ekiti. I am Ayo Fayose, Peter the rock, if you hit me you will be in trouble. If I hit you, you will be in trouble.’’
To substantiate his claim about the President’s plan to make Nigeria an Islamic nation, Fayose said: ‘’Why did five of them go to Saudi Arabia to wait for our man there (referring to President Buhari and state governors), if they don’t have agenda.
“The agenda is coming small small, but we will resist it. Nigeria is a free nation where we proclaim the name of Jesus Christ freely, and we believe in Allah for those who are muslims. This nation will not be taken for an Islamic nation,’’ Fayose said.
As a closing remark, the Ekiti State governor went on to declare and ‘’decree’’ the return of a PDP-led government in 2019.
