The of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has dismissed reports that there are plans to islamise .

The Sultan spoke at a national symposium and launching of 2025 Vision by Da’awah Coordination Council of Nigeria (DCCN).

The Sultan said, “When late President Umar Yar’Adua was President, Christians and Muslims leaders wrote, asking him to make Islamic and Christian Religious Knowledge core and compulsory subjects in schools.

“When President Goodluck Jonathan took over, we presented a paper making the same demand, which was approved, but the then minister of education refused to implement it for reasons best known to him.

“So, I wonder why a controversy suddenly surfaced over alleged attempts by Muslims to force Islam on Christians by compelling students to learn Islamic religion in schools.” he said.
