One year after the official swearing in of President Muhammadu Buhari, the government is considering two bills that, if passed, will further Islamise Nigeria.
A bill to establish grazing reserves for the Fulani in every state would facilitate Muslim Fulani expansion deep into the Christian south. This is despite knowing the Fulani have been infiltrated by Boko Haram, which uses the Fulani as a means to Islamic expansion.
A bill proposing to amend the Nigerian constitution to expand the scope and jurisdiction of Nigeria’s Islamic Sharia courts passed its second reading without debate on 19 May.
Christian and Muslim students have protested in Abuja against the government’s move to divide and Islamise Nigeria.

- Ask the Lord to awaken and embolden the Nigerian church and Christian legislators to do all they can to ensure plots to further Islamise Nigeria will not succeed.
- Pray this current situation will be used by the Lord to unify His church in Nigeria and further spread His Gospel throughout the nation.
- Pray the Lord will end the violence and terror perpetrated by Boko Haram and the Fulani. Pray those in authority will concentrate their efforts on ensuring citizens’ safety and stamping out corruption.
