Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has maintained that the rumours making the rounds that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari was planning to Islamise Nigeria was false. He called on Nigerians to shun such report, saying that there was no plan to convert the country to Islamic state

He said this when members of the Student Christian Movement of Nigeria (SCM) paid a courtesy visit to him in his office in Abuja. The Vice President Osinbajo asked Nigerians to disregard such rumour, declaring that “Nigeria can’t be Islamised”.

He charged religious bodies to channel their energies towards proffering solution to the numerous challenges facing the country.

He enjoined young people to take responsibility for their future and be creative as opportunities have increased.
