President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday met with leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) at the presidential villa, Abuja.

The meeting was attended by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Babagana Monguno, national security adviser; and Winifred Oyo-Ita,  head of service of the federation.

Some ministers also attended the meeting while Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation, was represented by Habiba Lawal, permanent secretary, Ecological Fund Office.

The meeting held at a time when the religious body accused the federal government of plotting to Islamise the country.

At a meeting in Lagos earlier in the week, the leadership of CAN called on the government to withdraw from all religious bodies.

CAN alleged that there is a communique on ‘Islam in Africa Organisation’ (IAO) of 1989 called ‘Abuja Declaration’ which among other things, seeks “to eradicate in all its forms and ramifications all non-Muslim religions in member nation which are unacceptable to Muslim”.

“Almost all the steps to be taken to Islamise Nigeria have been completed through the subtle actions of our rulers who were and are Muslims. Our government has donated billions of naira into this Islamisation agenda,” Samson Ayokunle, president of CAN said at the meeting.

Buhari is also expected to meet with representatives of the Muslim community in Nigeria at 2 pm.
