Ahead of the June 13 inauguration of the 10th National Assembly, a group under the aegis of The Natives has kicked against the election of another Muslim as the next Senate President.

The Leader of the group, Smart Edwards, while addressing a press conference on Thursday in Abuja called on Senators-elect across party lines to key into the wisdom of President Bola Tinubu and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to promote peace, ensure inclusion and national unity that would endear the parliament to the Nigerian people.

He urged Senators-elect to dissociate themselves from any political, financial and insensitive approach or act that would promote a Muslim for the office of the Senate President.

Edwards said: “We cannot toy with the expensive acts that can widen the divide of the people post-elections. While it is politically permissible, we persuade the 10th Assembly to dissociate themselves from any political, financial and insensitive approach or act that will promote a Muslim for the Office of the Senate President for this is a display of national sabotage.”

He noted that the plethora of disruptions and carryover of pre-election bitterness, resistance and echoes from the people was a clear indication that no group whatsoever should be seen fanning the flags of discord in the name of financial war chest.

Similarly, the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has also cautioned President Bola Tinubu to be wary of the immediate past governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai.

Ayodele said El-Rufai would burn Nigeria down if Tinubu offered him an appointment in his government.

In a statement by his media aide, Oluwatosin Osho, Primate Ayodele alleged that El-Rufai has an agenda to Islamize Nigeria.

According to the cleric: “He should be warned, or he will destroy Tinubu’s government. God will destroy his plans before his time, and if Tinubu brings him in, he will destroy the government completely.

“Tinubu should stop El-Rufai before he creates a religious war in this country. Christians are peaceful people, God will deal with El Rufai because he wants to create a fight in the country.

“If El-Rufai becomes anything in Tinubu’s government, he will burn the country, he will start a religious crisis and he has a devilish agenda that will soon be exposed.”
