Middle Belt Forum, MBF, says the immediate past governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai, Islamic hegemony in Nigeria comment portends danger for the country.

The forum described El-Rufai as a dangerous politician and bigot who is masquerading as a nationalist.

It implored the Department of State Service, DSS, to invite him for questioning, in view of recent his Islamisation comment.

It also expressed deep concern that contrary to denials, the agenda for the planned Islamisation of Nigeria was well under way and not imaginary.

The NBF in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Dr Isuwa Dogo, advised President Bola Tinubu and current governor of Kaduna State, Uba Sani, to deal with him at arm’s length.

The group was reacting to what it described as provocative pronouncements by el-Rufai on the eve of his exit wherein he told some Islamic preachers how he, with others, plotted to enthrone the same-faith ticket in Kaduna State that was later successfully replicated at the federal level.

The former governor in the video clip, had recalled how he, with others, resolved to ensure the Muslim-Muslim ticket was sustained for another 20 years to force Christians to come to terms with the indispensability of the same-faith ticket as a remedey for peace in both Kaduna State and the federal level.

But Dogo said what el-Rufai never told his selected preachers “was that the state he ruled and ruined for eight years was turned into Nigeria’s headquarters of kidnappings and human barbarities that led to the murder of tens of thousands of people and decimation of over 100 communities under his watch.

“There is no doubt that this former governor remains a clear present and future danger to the unity of our nation. He is subtly working for a group that is unremittingly and persistently poised at installing the supremacy of the Islamic faith in the corridor of power.

“This little but dangerous manipulator, who is skilled in the politics of deploying religious sentiments, must not be allowed near the corridors of power. He has become a national evil that must be avoided at all cost.

“The forum calls on the Nigerian security agencies not only to place the former governor under its radar but he should be invited by the secret police for a chat.

“Considering the comments he made before the clerics, the man who suffers from an inferiority complex must be considered as a dangerous politician riding on the wings of religion for relevance.

“We, hereby, denounce el-Rufai’s comments before the clerics as a shameless act of national hypocrisy steeped in the premeditated plot to set adherents of both religions on warpath.”

Dogo described as outrageous deceitful attempts by el-Rufai “and his nebulous co-travellers to push our nation down the slippery slope of religious tension and bigotry.”

He said the outrage over the el-Rufai video clip demonstrated the level of disappointment by Nigerians over the former governor’s outburst that was aimed at inflaming religious conflagration in order to destabilize the Nigerian state.

He said: “The unfortunate comments by this bigot, who is erroneously thought of as a nationalist and public intellectual, portray him as a divisive leader, who not only thrives in creating chaos but also reveal him as an irredeemable religious extremist whose antecedents as governor showcases him as a treacherous enemy of Nigeria that must be barred from the corridor of power.

“Even before now, the forum has never been deceived by the pretentiousness of the former governor whose stock in trade is divisiveness hidden under the thin covering of public intellectualism and patriotism”
