Ado-Ekiti – League of Imams and Alfa in Ekiti State have warned Muslims against collecting Sallah rams from Governor Ayodele Fayose over what they described as the deliberate marginalization of Muslim members by Ekiti State Government.
The clerics, who condemned the lopsidedness in the appointments of commissioners and other officials by Governor Fayose, said that before resorting to making their protest public, effort at getting the governor redress the lopsided appointment were to no avail.
The meeting of the Muslim clerics was held held Tuesday at Anser- Udeen Central Mosque Odo-Otu, Ado-Ekiti.
A statement by the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affair (NSCIA) and National Council of Muslim Youth Organisation (NACOMYO) resolved that no Muslim in the State should collect rams and other food items if presented to them in any form by the government.
The statement which was signed by the leaderships of the Imams and Alfa said, any Muslim that Collects such rams or food items under any guise has taken Haram (Unlawful) and the punishment of the Almighty Allah awaits the person. (Quran 71 verse 28)
