- Bishop David Oyedepo noted that some people were working on islamising Nigeria
- He insisted that their plans will not work as the church will not sit back
- He clarified that he wasn't referring to Islam as a religion but those infiltrating it
Bishop David Oyedepo has said that there is an agenda to Islamise Nigeria but vowed that their move will be thwarted.
The religious cleric in a sermon at his church noted that the National Christian Elders Forum said the country is engaged in a war with jihadist but that Christians will not take this lightly.
In a the video, Oyedepo clarified that he was not referring to Islam as a religion but those infiltrating it to cause harm to other people.
He said: "God sent me to this generation as a prophet not to Nigeria. And I have very clean idea as to where Nigeria is heading...
"The National Christian Elders Forum last week in their meeting cited that Nigeria has launched a Jihad. But as we pray as a church evil will be averted. The Islamists are bent on Islamizing this country but this is not Nigeria of 1964.
"I vow under God as a prophet it will not see the light of day...The attempt to scrap Christian Religious Knowledge from the syllabus of sec schools is an aberration of the constitution ..CAN has spoken, PFN,NCEF has spoken ...
"Anyone that won’t give this country rest God will send him to silence… anyone planning towards bloodshed it will only happen to them and their family, in the name of Jesus Christ

"By Islamist I mean the Islam politics it’s not Islam as a religion. We've been living together forever… It’s not the Fulanis shooting those guns… no, there are people that have infiltrated them by a deliberate plan to launch a nationwide Jihad, but I tell you that's why some of us are alive today to say to the devil you've got no room in this country, enough is enough.. Thank you Jesus."
NAIJ.com earlier reported that the removal of Christian Religious Knowledge (CRK) from the curriculum of public schools was described as a sinister plot to cause inter-religious crisis in Nigeria, by a non-governmental organization, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA).
According to reports, in a statement signed by the group’s president Emmanuel Onwubiko, the minister of education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, was referred to as an agent of destabilization of inter-religious harmony going by his arbitrary appointments of Muslims to head strategic educational agencies such as the National Universities Commission (NUC); Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB); Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) among others.
