Former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido has called on former President Olusegun Obasanjo to withdraw his comment that Boko Haram were planning to “Fulanise” Nigeria and “Islamise” Africa.

Obasanjo had made the comment while speaking on Saturday at the second session of the Seventh Synod of the Anglican Communion, Oleh Diocese, in the Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State.

He said,  “It is no longer an issue of a lack of education and employment for our youths in Nigeria which it began as, it is now West African Fulanisation, African islamisation and global organised crimes of human trafficking, money laundering, drug trafficking, gun trafficking, illegal mining and regime change.”

But in a reaction through his spokesman, Mansur Ahmed, the ex-governor called on Obasanjo not to allow his disenchantment with the current administration to turn him into a religious and ethnic bigot.

He said, “If it were said at a non-religious venue to a non-religious audience, maybe; it might have been more tolerable.

“Please, sir don’t let your disappointment with sitting presidents turn you into a bigot. You must not abandon the national stage.

“The cracks along the various divides in our National cohesion are already turning into huge gorges.”
