APC’s presidential candidate Prof. Yemi Osinbanjo claims President Goodluck Jonathan is the first Nigerian leader to attend a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) since Nigeria was senlisted by   former military President,  Ibrahim Babangida , in 1986 , according to the Nigerian Tribune .The professor  made the disclosure during a visit to Warri, Delta state. He said :
”Throughout his period as military head of state, Buhari was under intense pressure to drag Nigeria into the OIC, but he never yielded, because he respects Nigeria as a secular state, in line with the constitution. Besides, his cook and driver are Christians.
”When Babangida eventually dragged Nigeria into OIC, none of his successors ever attended any of its meeting because they know to Islamise Nigeria is very difficult, as you need to first get the constitution amended. That process, you know, is almost impossible. But it is on record that in 2013, President Jonathan, undermining the constitutional limitation, ensured that Nigeria attended an OIC meeting”.
