The Director of Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), Prof Ishaq Akintola has revealed why Muslims are more than Christians in Nigeria.
Akintola stated this while reacting to words of Pastor Paul Adefarasin, the founder of the House On the Rock regards the 2023 Nigerian elections.
Paul Adefarasin on Sunday, April 3 revealed the plan of Christian leaders to get 15 million more voters ahead of the 2023 general election.
Part of his statement reads thus, “We believe, we can get 15 million more voters and that becomes a very significant bloc that must be respected and it adds to the platform of our voice, harmonised as Christian leaders”.
Reacting to the clergy’s statement, MURIC leader said, “How can those who marry only one woman and have just four children each claim majority status over those who marry four women and have as many as sixteen children? These are people who have been deceiving the Muslim majority with false claims of oneness. They have been misleading Muslims by warning against religious politics whereas they are the real culprits behind religious politics.
“But the game is up. The eyes of Nigerian Muslims are now wide open. Never again will Muslims use their majority to vote for their oppressors who are the minority. Never again will Muslims use their large number to vote against their fellow Muslims.
