Mischief Makers set to activate religious political propaganda for 2019 Elections

Mischief Makers set to activate religious political propaganda for 2019 Elections

Muslims and Christians in this clime may have viewed one another with utmost suspicion for donkey years for no reason other than unfounded fears. They may have clashed many times in the effort aimed at drawing “superiority” lines or even determining who is greater in number or deeper in spirituality, with lives and limbs and property and future well-being all put in acute peril.

They may have bickered endlessly as though it is not the same God who created them and it is not the same God that they call upon and that Ibrahim and Abraham, Musa and Moses, Yahaya and John, Yusuf and Joseph as well as Mariama and Marilyn are not one and the same.

They may have both carried on arrogantly as though no other religion exists in this clime aside the two.They may have embarrassingly portrayed our clime as ‘the only place in the world where Muslims and Christians live’, going by the somewhat endless clashes between faithful of both religions.They may have each hustled separately to corner the state’s attention, as if the state itself needs any religion to make life meaningful and abundant for the citizens.But, at the end of the day, there is a very thin or no line at all between Islam and Christianity, especially as far as our clime is concerned, politically, that is. In any case, religion, as practiced here, is big politics, anyway.

Gone, for instance, are the days when sheer ignorance and mischief led some people to INSIST that ‘APC is a Muslim party and PDP is a Christian party’. Who will deny that some Christians have lately crossed from PDP to APC and have even justified the ‘crossover’ publicly and with fanfare?

“It’s just five months to the 2019 election campaign kick-off and many more will still cross from PDP to APC,” one keen observer, who pleaded anonymity for fear of reprisal from religious fanatics, told me a few hours ago.
Apparently, fanatics are still on the prowl! May the heavens rescue our beloved country from their stranglehold fast. Amen and Amen!
