The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed recently revealed this via a statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, religious leaders should not use the Christmas period, which should be for peace, to instigate hatred, sectarian strife and national disunity.
He added that it is wrong and resorting to such slanders right about now could trigger unintended consequences.
His words, ”Calling for a violent overthrow of a democratically-elected government, no matter how disguised such a call is, and casting a particular religion as violent is not what any religious leader should engage in, and certainly not in a season of peace.”
