First, people trekked long distances for their favorite politicians. Then rode bicycles and donkeys. They also climbed trees. We thought we’d seen it all but apparently, we were wrong.

According to several online reports, a youth corper has converted to Islam to honour President Muhammadu Buhari.

The individual is said to be Chukwuma Austin Dike from Imo State and is a “Batch C” corp member serving in Benue State, Konshisha Local. He reportedly made a vow during election period that if Buhari won the elections, he would convert to Islam.

Sources state that shortly after Buhari’s inauguration, Dike converted to Islam at Jibwisb Mosque Gboko, Benue state.

    I can’t with these pledges and vows, all for the sake of publicity and pointless intentions. In the first place, this chap makes a mockery of the religion Islam regardless of what his previous beliefs were. I’m done with this joblessness.

    Buhari’s supporters might be more ridiculous than Jonathan’s. This is pathetic. I have never heard a more absurd excuse for converting to another religion.

    When an igbo christian converts to Islam, it’s always because of money. He looks older than 30 sef and should have been exempted. I’m sure he will claim 21. Otondo corper.

    Let me just drop this popular saying of the Prophet (PBUH) here:

    “Actions are according to intentions, and everyone will get what was intended. Whoever migrates with an intention for Allah and His messenger, the migration will be for the sake of Allah and his Messenger. And whoever migrates for worldly gain or to marry a woman, then his migration will be for the sake of whatever he migrated for.”

      What are you insinuating or are u trying to correct him. The way some muslims go about their teachings or correction is wrong and unattractive. Very great quotation anyway

    This is incredible! This young man should be closely monitored as ISIS and Alshabab have been speaking to some young chaps to join them.

    Not comfortable that an Igbo man will love Buhari to that extent of converting to Islam if he wins.

    This man may have other intentions than these flimsy reasons. SSS and Secret agents should watch him, if an Igbo man join ISIS,nsogbu gadi kwa. ima na nanyi bu anu ana agba egbe onata nri!

    you should be ashamed of yourself wearing that cloth, all these years you stayed in school you dint get anything in your head. your faith is a personal thing you don’t do it for anybody is between you and your God. if another person win you will still change to honor that person

    What a plonker! Converting from one religion to another not because of a personal conviction but to “honour” someone who doesn’t even know you exist. I almost feel sorry for this unintelligent human being.

    Igbo is an ethnic group, not a religion. His previous religion is not specified; so he was either not a firm believer of his previous religion, or he was an atheist. Regardless, may God give him guidance and may he realize that faith should be based on a relationship with God. The point is to honour God, not to “honour” another human being.

    Not a valid reason to change religion aunless you have been wanting to do so. Based on the presented reason, he is about to go off to Syria or some crazy place and join the crazies out there.
