You’re Always Silent when Muslims Murder Christians University Graduates lashed out at the Sultan of Sokoto Sa’ad Abubakar
University Graduates have lashed out at the Sultan of Sokoto Sa’ad Abubakar for saying Christians are not under persecution in Nigeria.
The Sultan earlier condemned Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) for applauding the placement of Nigeria on US Special Watch List (SWL) over the continued violation of religious freedom in which Christians are the major victims.
The graduates under the aegis of Nigeria Christian Graduate Fellowship (NCGF) have accused his eminence of feigning ignorance and turning a blind eye to the violent treatment meted out to Christians in recent years.
In a statement made available to newsmen, NCGF noted that no single arrest has been made for the incessant killings of Christians since 2015.
“We in the Nigerian Christian Graduate Fellowship (NCGF) find the Sultan’s outburst against CAN for expressing it’s feeling on the subject matter unjustified and rather unfortunate.
“It can be described as a case of the chick leaving the knife that killed it while antagonising the cooking pot. The pot is just playing its role and didn’t contribute to the chick’s misfortune.
“CAN simply expressed its support to the international community who begun to see what she has been lamenting over the years about Islamic fundamentalism and government tacit support and its effect on Christian faith in Nigeria.
“We thought the Sultan should address the subject matter of the international opprobrium which Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen have brought to the nation rather than make scapegoat of Christian Association of Nigeria.
“Or is his Eminence contesting that there is no religious intolerance in Nigeria? If that is the position, we can say that the Sultan is being economical with the truth or is an accomplice.
“An interrogation of the subject matter shows that it is either the Sultan and the institution which he leads are in willful ignorance of the issues at stake or he has chosen to play to the gallery as government spokesman.
“For the Nigeria Christian Graduate Fellowship, that tutorial on the need for CAN to analyze issues before reacting is unnecessary.
“The Sultan cannot fault CAN and its allies on the issue of research on effects of Islamic fundamentalism in Nigeria
