Clerics ask Ekiti Muslims to reject Fayose's Sallah goodies

16 September 2015, 11:23

Ekiti - The League of Imams and Alfas in Ekiti has ordered Muslims in the state to reject rams and other food items for Sallah celebration, if given to them in any form by the state government, Punch reports.

The League reached the decision at a meeting held on Tuesday at Ansar-u-Deen Society Central Mosque Odo-Otu, Ado Ekiti, where it reviewed the “deliberate marginalisation of Muslim members in Ekiti State Government’s political appointment.”

The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs and National Council of Muslim Youth Organisation, Ekiti State, had respectively issued statements condemning Governor Ayodele Fayose for neglecting Muslims in appointments.

The party claimed Ekiti Muslims were not given up to one per cent of the appointments made by Fayose’s administration.
