Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has been accused of laying the foundation of alleged Islamization and Fulanisation of Nigeria.

 

The Nigerian envoy to the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Alhaji Hassan Ardo, said Nigeria joined the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) during Obasanjo’s tenure, and implementation of Sharia Law by some states started when he was the President of Nigeria.

 

Ardo said this in reaction to Obasanjo’s comment that President Muhammadu Buhari has planned to Fulanise and Islamise the country.

 

The Nigerian envoy stated this on a phone conversation from the Caribbean Island.

 

He said; “I read the statements by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to the effect that President Muhammadu Buhari has a Fulanisation and Islamisation agenda and I laughed. Have we forgotten so soon that it was during his time as the president of this country that we joined the OIC?.
