"Buhari cannot Islamize Nigeria" - Amaechi

Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, has dismissed claims that the All Progressives Congress is an Islamic party.

Amaechi, who spoke on Wednesday during an interactive session with students at the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education in Port Harcourt, insisted that the party had no intention to Islamise Nigeria should it win the 2015 presidential election.

He said, "APC is not an Islamic party. This is so because when General Muhammad Buhari (rtd) was Nigeria's Head of State as a young man, he did not Islamize Nigeria, and to do that, he needs the endorsement of the National Assembly to debate over the issue. Buhari cannot Islamize Nigeria. Don't be perturbed by what our detractors are saying.

"I am an ardent Catholic Christian and I converse with God a lot. It is not true that APC will Islamize Nigeria. The National Chairman of APC, Mr. John Oyegun is a Christian. Bola Tinubu's wife is also a Christian, Buhari's cook is a Christian from Igboland, his driver is also a Christian. As a father to all of those Christians, Buhari gives Sunday as a free day to his domestic staff to go to church and worship God. So, no one can believe what our detractors are saying about Buhari and APC."
