OAU VC blames insecurity on fanatics


Vice-Chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, Prof. Tale Omole, weekend, said the activities of religious fundamentalists from the two main religions were responsible for some crises facing the country.

The Vice Chancellor argued that those who found it difficult to tolerate the views of others, belong to this category and their activities always led to confusion and crises in the country.

He said: “I am a public leader and not a religious leader. What destroys Nigeria is fundamentalism in both religions.”

Omole, who spoke while receiving the delegation of Obafemi Awolowo University Muslim Graduates Association, UNIFEMGA, who paid him a courtesy visit in his office, said it was foolhardy for one to fight a fellow human being on the basis of different religions, which he said runs contrary to the tenets of Islam and Christianity.
