The leadership of Ondo State Council for Islamic Affairs (ODSCIA) has condermned the exclusion of Muslims in the political arithmetics of the Sunshine State,as the Ondo State Governor,Hon Lucky Orimisan Ayedatiwa announced nominees for vacant positions of Deputy Governor, SSG and Chief Protocol. .
ODSCIA said that the Muslims in the State has a large percentage of Voters population, which could not comprehend the criteria for selecting people into political positions which does not recognise the numbers of group of people or the religious balance in the State.
“The Muslims in the State who are laws abiding had been tolerating this bracing neglect for a long time and it seems our silence is being taken for granted.
“The Council is now calling on the Ondo State House of Assembly in the spirit of checks and balances which was entrenched in the Nigerian Constitution to right the wrongs by stopping this anomaly and prevail on Mr. Governor to re-consider and change the nominations to include practicing Muslims to balance the political equations.
“ODSCIA is calling on Muslims in the State to continue to be law-abiding while we await the positive response to this our urgent call”the group stated.
