Buhari says Nigeria has joined the Islamic coalition against terror

President Buhari during his recent interview with Al Jazeerah, said Nigeria has joined the Islamic Coalition against terrorism being championed by Saudi Arabia. 
“We are part of it because we’ve got terrorists in Nigeria that everybody knows which claim that they are Islamic. So, if there’s an Islamic coalition to fight terrorism, Nigeria will be part of it because we are casualties of Islamic terrorism,” he said
When asked whether Nigeria joined the coalition during his meeting with King Salman Bin Abdul-Aziz of Saudi Arabia recently, Buhari said “yes.”
Buhari queried the position of some Christians in Nigeria who have opposed Nigeria joining the coalition. He wondered why such Christians had not gone to fight Boko Haram in the North or militants in the South.
“Why can’t those Christians that complained go and fight terrorism in Nigeria or fight the militancy in the South. It’s Nigeria that matters, not the opinion of some religious bigots,” he said
On whether he was trying to change the religious identity of the country, Buhari noted: “How can I change the religious identity of Nigeria? No religion advocates hurting the innocent and just because the Muslims are the ones that claim to be Boko Haram and they are killing innocent people whether in the church, in the bus or in the market place, then I will just sit and look at them because I too am a Muslim? Islam is against injustice in any form.”he said

Mr President lacks verbal courtesy and keeps the country in fear of what he may say next. I believe we got it wrong in choosing an analogue rude individual to lead us in a digital diplomatic time.

Buhari, this Greek Gift of a coalition with Islamic countries is too laden with suspicion! Whether you like it or not, an average Nigerian see it as a ploy to islamize this country... which will be resisted with all alacrity! The next thing we'll hear is that we need to do so & so, or be part of so & so, all Islamic in nature, to counter the Islamic terrorists! Smacks too much of a deceit!

Crazy clueless dude! I hope he's not planning to Islamise Nigeria as alleged severally. We will sure resist such move, Nigeria is a secular state,not even Buhari or anyone can change that. If he wants Islamisation, they should divide the country and practice their Islam in the North.

I love his replies..just the exact things he's meant to say..
For the brainless fools ranting on him turning Nigeria to an Islamic state, sure y'all not blind to read this nor deaf to hear.. and even he's a Muslim himself..
Pls do anything and everything possible to eradicate terrorism from the Muslim folks in Nigeria.
For the Christians, if not comfortable with this, lead the war front then..
God bless Nigeria!

I am Igbo but I strongly supported the candidacy of Buhari in the last election. It is a decision that I now regret after watching this his interview with aljazeera. This is one interview that really brought him out as an unrepentant dictator and a man with no unifying qualities to lead a diverse country as Nigeria. AmongSt other things, the way he turned down the interviewers offer to be show a video clip of biafra crackdown left me stunned. His response that followed was even more stunning. For him, there is no point meeting biafra agitators to address their grievances but he has expressed readiness to meet and negotiate with Boko Haram. He also appeared to have said to Christian to go to hell when asked about joining Islamic coalition against terrorism. It wasn't his decision to join that was the issue but the manner in which he responded to the opposition to the decision. Ngige and Co should now do the needful and resign from his cabinet.

There should be a law against our Presidents doing things like this without a referendum, national assembly vote, or something. This is a democracy and no President should be able to make decisions like this

Anonymous said...

Buhari you are a bastard! Earlier, your government denied joining the islamic coalition yet now you say you joined weeks ago and that any christian who has a problem with it is a "religious bigot" and should go to the north to fight boko haram!! The saudi's that you joined, are they in the north fighting boko haram now? Imbecilic president! I blame the people that stood in the rain and sun to vote you in.

This is a democracy and I think we have a senate body, why would he include Nigeria in an Islamic movement without first seeking our consent? Besides see the arrogance in his response. Hmm we have seen the change indeed 2019 should please come fast lemme retrace my vote to some other person. Slowly slowly he will advocate to Islamise Nigeria because the rest of the countries in this Islamic movement are Islamic countries

I know it will come to this mess. When this dullard president visited Saudi Arabia and Qatar and cunningly came back to Nigeria to receive Turkish president, I suspected some covert arrangement among these notorious ISIS supporters. Again, it is becoming clearer that the killing of 300 Shiite Muslims in Zaria is a covert operation to spite Iran. Let us know that the Chinese, Europeans (Germans) and Russians are watching. Nigeria's Government should not send any soldier to Syria to topple Assad because this is what all these is about. We will pay dearly....

Well said. Buhari has said it before during his inauguration that he will not Islamize Nigeria and that boko haram is not Islam even though they claim to be Islam. Everything they do is against Islamic religion. They do not attack the South. They only attack the North.

with all due respect to this country Fani Kayode and co warned us but the truth is Nigerians will never learn. Just see the rubbish a president vomited does he think this is a dictatorial government? well thats good next time we will learn. Mumu Nigerians so daft even in wisdom.I knew his trip to Saudi was for an agenda to Islamize this country. First it was to beg for aid and as usual nothing goes for free. KAI APC has killed us. No wonder boko haram is dying cos he has promised them.

If Turkey, a nation of 99% Christians could be islamized to 96% Islam overnight through violence then how much more Nigeria, the Islamic nation isn't joking about islamizing Nigeria, it's a serious agenda! Africa is the only continent with an Islamic majority, there is a serious mission to islamise the continent starting from the most populous African nation, Nigeria, like I said earlier on, Google the abuja declaration of 1989…

I'm really impressed with how decisive Buhari always is....that's one of the first MAJOR character of being a great a leader. I agree with him on these decisions of his...even tho, as usual many shallow compatriots will come here,misunderstand simple English and quote him out of proportion.

God guide,guard and direct the president.

God Bless Nigeria in Jesus Name. Amen.
