Christian Association Leader Dismisses El-Rufai’s Islamization Claims as Political Tactics

Rev. Joseph Hayab, Chairman of the Kaduna State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has dismissed the Islamization claims made by the state’s former governor, Nasir El-Rufai. Hayab believes El-Rufai’s recent remarks about a Muslim/Muslim ticket and President Bola Tinubu’s victory are tactics aimed at furthering his alleged presidential ambitions and creating division between Christians and Muslims in the country.

Hayab accuses El-Rufai of playing religious and political games to confuse people and incite conflict between different groups for his own benefit. He asserts that El-Rufai’s true character has been exposed through his statements and actions.

According to Hayab, El-Rufai’s supposed Muslim/Muslim ticket in Kaduna would have led to more problems and divisions, as evidenced by the killings and unrest in the state during his administration. Hayab also criticizes El-Rufai for his lack of respect for Islamic clerics and believes that his motivations are self-centered and not genuinely concerned with the well-being of the people.

Hayab concludes by suggesting that El-Rufai’s actions demonstrate his unsuitability for leadership and highlight the need to thoroughly assess the emotional stability and mental fitness of individuals before granting them power.
