The Middle Belt Patriotic Front has faulted former President Goodluck Jonathan over his recent comments at the US Congress where he reportedly claimed that religion was tearing the nation apart.
Jonathan at the event revealed that his administration’s political
will to halt impunity in Nigeria led to the localisation of religious
extremism in the Northeast with occasional killings in other zones of
Jonathan explained further that he also reached out to the “Muslim
Ummah in Nigeria, His
Eminence, the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar
III,” whom he was able to convince to “publicly condemn Islamic
extremism in Nigeria.”
Speaking to journalists in Abuja, national chairman of the forum,
Bishop Musa Fomson described the statement by the ex-president as
reckless and unpatriotic.
He said, “It was the mindlessness of his administration that
amplified the schism to a point where persons that were once neutral
learnt to hate adherents of other faiths. It was Goodluck Jonathan that
made religion and ethnicity into campaign issues in order to cover the
incompetence of his rule in the quest for re-election.”
He accused the former president of sowing the seeds of division
through his, “ill advised romance with the then President of the
Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, who even
ran errand as weapons buyer, and was instrumental to reducing
Christendom into the current level where whatever CAN has to say is
being second guessed.”
