Jihad, the Islamic campaign for takeover of constitutional and political power, has been launched in Nigeria, the National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) has declared.

The body alleged that Jihadists have taken over the education and security apparatuses of the nation to foist Islamic rule.

NCEF, in a statement by its chairman, Solomon Asemota, said the battle is responsible for the constitutional as well as security challenges facing the nation.

It said: “The real problem with the country is that JIHAD has been launched in Nigeria and Islamists that have been interfering in the Governance of the country using “Taqiyya” (approved deception) as “Stealth/Civilization Jihad” and Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen as violent Jihad are relentless in their pursuit of eradicating Democracy in Nigeria.

“The objective of the Islamists (Political Islam) is to supplant the Constitution of Nigeria with Sharia ideology as the source of legislation in the Nation.

“The conflict between Democracy as National Ideology and Sharia as a usurping ideology is responsible for the crisis unfolding in Nigeria. The nation is in the throes of Jihad.”

It added: “One key indicator of the tension between Democracy and Sharia is the conflicting signals emanating from the Presidency.

“The Buhari/Osinbajo Presidency is the result of a democratic process. The subtle attempts to undermine the office of the Acting President as evidenced by an unguarded statement recently by a Government functionary, is an indication of a competing ideology which is conflicting with democracy.

“The NCEF is alarmed at the audacity and impunity of the Islamists in Nigeria to attempt forcefully transforming Nigeria from a Democratic Nation into an Islamic theocratic state.”
