Former Aviation Minister and Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Femi Fani Kayode, has expressed fears over Nigeria’s future, saying the country already has Islamic faithful who share the same ideology as Afghanistan’s Taliban.
The majority of Islamic faithful in Nigeria belong to the Sunni sect, and yes, this includes Buhari himself. This means the country is already being ruled by Islamists who share similar beliefs to that of the Taliban.
There have been growing concerns over a secret plot to Islamize the country, and the ongoing security crisis particularly killings in the Middle Belt, are allegedly part of the plan to wipe out Christians and dominate.
Kayode in a post shared on his official Facebook page on Tuesday said the possibility of the country being taken over by Islam is no longer in doubt because history shows Islam is growing stronger and stronger, whilst Christianity is the complete opposite.
Chief Femi Fani Kayode said, “One of the things we will have to come to terms with no matter how difficult and unpleasant it may be is the fact that the overwhelming majority of people in Afghanistan want and support the Taliban. Had this not been the case they could not have won this 20-year war.
“Militant and radical Islam is almost irresistible in battle because its adherents are committed unto death.
“Those that are committed to liberation through jihad are extremely difficult to contend with because their ideological commitment is total and religious beliefs sacrosanct.
“You cannot fight a man who is not afraid to die and who considers it an honor to be killed in defense of his faith.
“That is the Salafist and Wahabbi doctrine and philosophy and in many ways, it is powerful and compelling even though I deplore the violence that goes with it.
“Islam is a unifying force amongst its adherents and a powerful rallying cry and point for those who opt to resist what they regard as bondage, injustice, and tyranny.
“Sadly Christianity lost that power years ago when it became watered down by liberalism, humanism, and the permissive society which essentially rejected all the old Christian norms and values and established the secular state.
“The Church was also relegated in its authority when it came to matters of governance and barred from exerting any political influence.
“Consequently as Christianity waned in its political power, Islam grew stronger.
“The Shia Islamists of Iran, under the leadership of Ayatollah Khomeini, defeated the Shah of Iran and his American allies through a people’s revolution in 1979 which has endured till today.
“The Sunni Islamists of Afghanistan, through Al Qaeda, defeated the Soviet Union in the 1980s, and in 2021 they have defeated the Americans through the Taliban.
“The world must now accept the fact that the Islamists are here to stay and that whether we like it or not sooner or later other nations in the African, Arab and Islamic world may follow their path.”
He concluded with the words, “Take it or leave it, this is the bitter truth.”
It could be recalled that prior to Buhari’s election in 2015, a Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor, Olatunbosun Emmanuel, raised alarm over secret jihad going on in the country. He warned against the election of a Muslim as President saying doing so would give Islam a strong footing, which in turn, would create the kind of situation the country is currently experiencing today.
He alleged a going war against Christianity in the country, saying the target is to turn the country into another Turkey.
