Feb 11, 2015 – Pictures: Buhari Holds Meeting With Catholic Bishops In Abuja, Debunked Rumoured Plan To Islamize Nigeria

All Progressives Congress, APC party candidate Buhari and running mate Osinbajo had a meeting with some Catholic Bishops on Tuesday in the Federal Capital Territory.

While speaking during the 1-hour long event, Buhari made it known that he is not a religious extremist and had no personal agenda to convert Nigeria into an Islamic country.

GMB said he is a practicing Muslim with no extreme view of Islam.

He further said that his record in the military and his past administration can confirm his religious view.

“I will not condone any initiative that seeks to promote one religion over the other. Neither I, nor my party, or any member of my team has any desire or plan to Islamize or Christianize Nigeria or support anyone with such intention.

Although I am a practising Muslim, and I have been so all my life, I have never belonged to, nor shared the views of, any extremist group. I am not even a cleric. I believe that religion is personal and private.” – Buhari told Catholic priests
