Apex Igbo socio-cultural organization. Ohanaeze Ndigbo has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign for attending a meeting of the Organization for Islamic Affairs (OIC), just a day after his swearing-in ceremony.
In a statement by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Chuks Ibegbu, Ohanaeze insisted that Buhari owes Nigerians explanation about his trip to Saudi Arabia to attend the Islamic meeting immediately after the swearing-in ceremony, thereby affirming his alleged stance of planning to Islamize the country.
According to the statement, “Why immediate attendance of Organization of Islamic Countries, OIC, meeting in Saudi Arabia a day after his swearing in? Mr. President Buhari owes Nigerians that explanation.
“This is a secular country and a leader that wants to be a mullah or fanatic is free to resign rather than plunge us into a religious crisis.”
Ohanaeze also attacked Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila for traveling to Mecca to perform Umrah, lesser hajj, saying his journey to Mecca in his bid to become speaker was a bad omen.

Specifically, it said Gbajabiamila’s journey to Mecca in his bid to become speaker spells doom for Nigeria’s democracy.
It stressed, “Femi Gbajabiamila, a born again Christian turned into Muslim for political reasons is dangerous to our democracy.
“Although, people have a right to change their religion, the sudden change from a Christian to a Muslim and his umrah journey to Mecca just to be Speaker is a bad omen.
“Can we trust such a character who can change his faith for power sake?”
