‘There is No Plans To Force Christian Students To Learn IRK’- Sultan Of Sokoto Insists

Abubakar stated this while speaking at a national symposium and launching of 2025 Vision by Da'awah Coordination Council of Nigeria.

"When Umar Yar'Adua was President, Christian and Muslim leaders wrote, asking him to make Islamic and Christian Religious Knowledge core and compulsory subjects in schools.

"When 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," the Sultan said.
