Be Active In Politics – Council Of Imams Charges Ondo Muslims | The Precision



The Council of Imams, Akure Land has called on Muslims in Ondo state to play active role in politics. 

He council noted this at its monthly propagation programme tagged “Muslim Unity in Political Diversity”. 

An Owo based Islamic cleric, Yunus Anola who gave the presentation harped on the unity of Muslims in order to gain political relevance. 

He pointed out that at a point in time, Prophet Muhammad sent out disciples to Syria to learn their language for Muslims to gain relevance. 

Alhaji Anola urged muslims to join politics and play major roles in it rather than nominal role.

The former deputy governor in the State, Alhaji Lasisi Oluboyo in his reaction also urged Muslims to prioritise their need in politics adding that the best bet for the faithful is to support a Christian/Muslim ticket and vice versa whenever governorship election present itself. 

He was disturbed that Muslims are no where to be found as federal and state assembly elections beckon in the state. 

Speaking, Chief Imam of Akure, AbdulHakeem Akorede regretted that the Muslim deputy slot which the faithful craved for in the last governorship election in the state was not achievable. He blamed it on lack of purpose and unity among the believers. 

“Muslims should be united and be alive to their responsibility in order to achieve the goal of having a Muslim deputy or governor in the State,” Akorede said.

He also thanked the present governor in the state, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu for the positions he gave Muslims politicians and urged him to appoint more Muslims who are vibrant in his party.
