Buhari thinks that the implementation of sharia in Nigeria is “a legal responsibility which God has given us [Muslims leaders] within the context of one Nigeria to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia wholeheartedly and to educate non-Muslims.” For 12 years the fight to take over the presidency of Nigeria became a do-or-die affair for Buhari because “what remains for Muslims in Nigeria [to do] is for them to redouble their efforts [and] educate Muslims on the need to promote the full implementation of sharia law” (this and the one above are quoted from Buhari’s address in an Islamic seminar in Kaduna in 2012)(Muhammadu Buhari)
Nigeria that is sustained by slogans and propaganda
Over the years the Nigerian state has been sustained by propaganda and slogan-mongering political gladiators. Many critics believe that as a result of this trying to run a country’s government based on political sloganeering and gimmicks is largely responsible for the lack of any concrete political or sociological achievement in Nigeria since its independence from colonial Britain in 1960. The only visible real developments are usually those told by some unscrupulous international media people who many critics accuse are paid off by the northern Muslim oligarchs to doctor facts and paint hollow fantastic pictures of a “united Nigeria” that is not.
