Neutrality flag?[edit]

Why does this article have a message that its neutrality is disputed? The person who has put this message there should explain his or her point of view or else agree that the message is removed. What exactly is not neutral about this article? There is no such discussion here on talk page. Lebatsnok (talk) 21:55, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

@Lebatsnok: I don't know why these cleanup tags were added, either.
@Masssly: I still don't know why you added these cleanup tags to this article. Is it OK to remove them now? Jarble (talk) 00:30, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

Islamic transformation[edit]

Islam in Nigeria, like a lot of other places, has undergone a transformation over the last decade or two. This is not discucssed.iFaqeer (Talk to me!) 00:12, Nov 20, 2004 (UTC)

"Shariah States"[edit]

Should we have a category for the states in Nigeria that have "Sharia" as state law?iFaqeer (Talk to me!) 01:01, 28 September 2005 (UTC)

I put a reference in, you might want to clean it up a bit/clarify - seems to go well with the maliki section. 212.12.146.156 (talk) 07:45, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Source of use[edit]

Percentage of the population which is muslim[edit]

This page is subject to constant edit-warring over the percentages of the population which is muslim and christian. Neither of the percentages given at this moment are reflected in the cited sources. This is an annoying situation and I'd like to see edit-warring over this matter stop or at least slow down. I'm tired of reverting. To further complicate things, the refs given don't agree with each other at all. In either case the percentage of muslims given in the article currently is higher than any of the three sources cited. - Metal lunchbox (talk) 07:56, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

I've attempted to solve this problem by removing the actual number percentages and replaced them with "roughly half" since the numbers are constantly being changed from 48% to 50% to 50.4%, always roughly half. That's as accurate as it gets on this topic. If you have a problem with this, I would love to know why.- Metal lunchbox (talk) 10:00, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
