APC Chieftain Urges Tinubu To Disassociate From El-Rufai’s Islamization Conspiracy
By Abdullahi Ahmad Bamalli
Evangelist Kwamkur Samuel, a Chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and former National Director of Legal and Public Affairs of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to be steadfast and disassociate himself from the Islamization conspiracy of the former Governor of Kaduna state, Malam Nasir El-rufai.
Kwamkur said this while speaking to journalists in Jos, the Plateau state capital.
He also condemned in strong terms the vituperations of Mallam Nasir El-Rufai in a video against the Christian community and non-Muslims in Nigeria in his recent address in Hausa language to some Islamic clerics at the end of his tenure.
According to him, for El-Rufai to think that the Asiwaju vote is a victory for Islam is very unfortunate and speaks volumes of his kind of bigotry. He said his outburst has destroyed the remaining respect he enjoyed from patriotic Nigerians while calling on Asiwaju to be mindful of friends, associates and politicians like El-Rufai who seek to work with him as they will do more harm to the system and the nation at large.
The APC Chieftain further said Christians who supported Bola Ahmed Tinubu did so out of sincere hope that both himself and his Vice will work to ensure sustainable development of Nigeria through their policies, experience and exposure.
“It should be known that we did not vote Tinubu out of El-Rufai’s deception (Taqiyya) as he claimed. It should be made known to El-Rufai that against his wild imagination of achieving an Islamization agenda through dominance and persecution of Christians, Christianity grows better in persecution and supposed dominance.”a
He further stressed “We shall continue to preach inclusiveness, equity and fair play in the true sense of these words. We shall never practise deception to cling to power. No, it is against our faith.” He said.
Kwamkur also appealed to the Northern governors to truly work towards dealing with poverty, insecurity and the likes and ensure the provision of good healthcare and other benefits of good governance, rather than to dwell on preaching hate, religious and tribal differences.
