The Sultan of Sokoto Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, has disowned the Fulani group that said they own Nigeria from Sokoto to the Atlantic Ocean, saying no one can Islamise or Christianize Nigeria.
“I am the leader of Usman Danfodio dynasty, I have never seen where in the hundreds books of Usman Danfodio where it was said Nigeria belong to the Fulanis, the Sultan said at the Interfaith Mediation Centre in conjunction with the Plateau State Peace Building Agency first annual Plateau State Forgiveness and Reconciliation Day.
“It is not possible for anybody to Islamise or Christianize Nigeria, it is not possible, hundred percent impossible but we still have leaders who use their privileged positions either in the church or mosque to say many bad things and nothing is done to them. They say things with impunity but never get punished.”
“People make comment that Jihad is to Islamise every country but I said no, Danfodio never came to Islamise any country, he preached against bad government.
