Dear Lords Spiritual and Highly Esteemed Christian Politicians:
The purpose of the write up is to remind you of the urgent need to have a reflection on the future of Christianity in Nigeria and its implication to the unity of our great country.
From the Desk of the Coordinating Director of Research:
NIGERIAN CIVIL WAR & GENOCIDE RESEARCH NETWORK
Our dear General Overseers/Bishops/Church Leaders/Christian Citizens of Nigeria, I had once written on the subject I titled: “THAT DEPICTABLE NATIONAL CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP COMMUNIQUE ON ISLAMIZATION AND THEIR UNCANNY SILENCE ON THE 100 BILLION NAIRA ISLAMIC SUKUK ROAD CONSTRUCTION BONDAGE.”
The decision of the Federal Government to float a 100 Billion Naira Islamic Sukuk Bond is a clear indication that Nigeria has become officially an Islamic State and lands ultimately sold out, please correct me, if you think otherwise.
One fact which we cannot collectively deny is that Nigeria stands out today as one of the greatest exporters of the Christian Faith to the Global community, second only to the United States of America, yet the same Christian Faith remains most endangered in the same Nigeria, compared to other nations of the similar magnitude of Christian population.
We cannot also deny the fact that the Christianity we enjoy today came by way of the superior fire-power of the British military and political supremacy over our traditional political institutions and the surging power of Usman dan Fodio’s jihad, yet our contemporary Church leaders have continued to assume clandestine indifference to the urgent and serious matter of islamization through their apolitical idiosyncrasies and reckless collusions with the same jihadists.
Even in Yorubaland, a place we often describe as the pride of evangelical Christianity in Nigeria we now see Muslim cultic political brigandage dictating the political pendulum of the people.
My worry is not so much about the nonchalant dispositions of our Church leaders to the serious matter of Islamization, but the weeping of those men of God who laboured, risked their lives and died in the process of bringing the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ to our fathers, against Usman dan Fodio’s Islamic colonialism.
How could we so easily forget the eternal labours of the likes of Bishops Samuel Ajayi Crowther, Samuel Johnson, Shanahan and Tugwell, Rev. James Bowen, Dr. Walter Miller, Dr. Mojola Agbebi, and Rev. Taylor among others too exhaustive to mention here?
The conclusion of this message is short and simple. Our church leaders and our Christian politicians should as a matter of urgency wake up from their political slumber to protect the endangered religion of Jesus Christ in Nigeria today by coming out strongly and fearlessly to oppose every Jihad policy of the regime of President Muhammadu Buhari and his Christian hirelings.
Most importantly, they should work sacrificially towards a Southern Christian Ticket, to elect a Southern Christian, as the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2023. Now, as it is their turn, as that the North has ruled consecutively for 8 years. This is my message and God Almighty is my guide, guardian and witness in this matter.
