The topmost Igbo Socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze has condemned the move of the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila to convert from his main religion which is Christianity to Islam just to gain power as speaker of the House of Reps.
The group also posited that his traveling to Mecca to perform Umrah, lesser hajj, in his bid to become speaker was a bad omen for the country.
Ohanaeze said Gbajabiamila’s journey to Mecca in his bid to become speaker is an outright to show of desperation to gain power and it spells doom for Nigeria’s democracy.
According to Ohanaeze, “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?”
