Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky has stated that if given an opportunity, Nigerians would pick an Islamic system of government over a system inherited from British colonial masters.
He made this claim in his first interview after release from state custody.
He said, “I believe that if there will be a plebiscite in this country and people will be asked ‘which system would you like?’ Is it the status quo, which is inherited from the British colonialists or the Islamic system?
“I’m sure that the majority will choose the Islamic system. It will be the government of the people after all.”
