Nigeria cannot be Islamised, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo reprimands rumour mongers for spreading false information about the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

 

Osinbajo who said this on Thursday after receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Student Christian Movement of Nigeria (SCM), charged faith-based organisations in the country to reject such assertions, as the constitution forbids state religion.

 

The Vice President appealed to religious bodies to focus more on finding lasting solutions to the numerous challenges that is facing the country.

 

He further advised Nigerian youths to take responsibility for their future by engaging in beneficial  work in the ICT, agriculture and other sectors.

 

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that while expressing appreciation to SCM for the honour, the vice president requested that the organisation assists in propagating the truth about the Federal Government’s policies and programme.

 

In his remark, the National President of SCM, Rev. Eric Ighalo, expressed willingness of the body to partner with the government in many capacities, including working as government ambassadors in their constituencies.

 

NAN reports that the SCM national president said that the award was conferred on the vice president in recognition of his integrity and outstanding leadership he had demonstrated over the years.

 

The award presentation, according to him, culminated the 75th anniversary of the organisation.
