LAGOS, NIGERIA (Worthy News)-- The Christian Association of Nigeria said a proposal by the Central Bank of Nigeria to introduce Islamic Banking is part of a hidden agenda by Muslims to Islamize the nation.

Bishop Goddy Okafor, CAN Chairman, Abia State Chapter, called on President Goodluck Jonathan to prevent this "evil proposal," claiming that Islamic banking would create chaos in Nigeria.

"Nigeria is a secular state," he said. "Islamic banking should be practiced purely in Islamic countries; it is not acceptable to us here. If we must remain one Nigeria, this must not happen ... to introduce a banking system to a particular group is dividing the country. Tomorrow, if allowed, they will divide schools. Nigerians and President Jonathan should not allow it, else they are calling for chaos."

Okafor also raised the alarm about the violent activities of the Islamist sect Boko Haram; he called for immediate action to stop both it and its sponsors no matter how highly connected in the government they are.

  1. Sharia law being imposed doesn't allow for any other system of belief except Islam, and thus imposing it on one sector of a government opens the door for Sharia law to be imposed on the entire government!  We've got to pray over this situation!

  2. Praying Save Now LORD

    Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. John 8:34

    Save Now~!

    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36
