Plans to Islamise Nigeria by 2025 have allegedly been uncovered by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Advisory Board.
Very Rev. Otuekong Ukut, Chairman of the board and Methodist Presbyter, Anyanya Circuit, Akwa Ibom State, revealed this on Monday in a keynote address at the 8th annual synod of Ebenezer Methodist Church, Ogbodiukwu, Umuopara Circuit of Umuahia West Diocese, Abia State.
Very Rev. Otuekong Ukut said the current onslaught on Christians by suspected Fulani herdsmen across the nation was evidence of the pre-agenda to Islamise Nigeria in 2025.
He alerted Christians to the fact that the election of 2019 was crucial for ‘the Jihadists’ to secure another four years of unfettered access to guns and power, hence under aged had been registered as voters.
The clergy decried the incessant killing of Christians in the country, describing it as unacceptable.
He said: “They have captured all the Northern states and have now pushed into other parts of Nigeria to meet the target of 2025.
“They have captured the Federal Government of Nigeria and all arms of defence – the Army, Air Force, Navy, Police, Civil Defence, Customs, Immigration, Prisons and Presidency, among others.”
The Methodist cleric said the only option left for Nigeria was to commence restructuring as earlier advocated by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) where the North (Sardauna Republic), Middle Belt (Tiv-Tukun), South-West (Oduduwa), the East (Biafra) and South-South (Atlantic Republic) would be on their own to end the age-long bondage once and for all.
He challenged Christians to brace up for defence, get involved in active politics, seek election, vote and be voted for as the only measure that would save Christians from wanton killings, rape and mayhem.
Speaking on the synod with the theme, ‘Strive for Peace and Holiness’, the Advisory Board Chairman noted that Methodist, which was the number one church in Nigeria since 1842, must strive hard to revive its evangelism as the present style of building cathedrals with few membership statistics must be discouraged.
“We need to give the church to their people, all families must be able to attend church in their village.
“No family should move more than a kilometre to attend Methodist church,” he said.
Dr. Ukut appreciated God for using the prelate of the church, Most Rev. Samuel Uche, and diocesan bishop of Umuahia West, Dr. Babatunde Taiwo, to turn around Methodist church and win souls for Christ.
