A group of Imams and Alfas in Ekiti State have on Tuesday ordered Muslims to reject Sallah rams from Governor Ayodele Fayose, describing the obnoxious deed as a deliberate aim at marginalizing Muslims in the state.
This disclosure was made known at a meeting of the Muslim clerics held at Anser- Udeen Central Mosque Odo-Otu, Ado-Ekiti.
According to Daily Post, the Imams said Muslims had almost zero slot in the appointments of commissioners and other officials by the governor Fayose.
They regretted that efforts to get the governor redress the lopsidedness were fruitless.
A statement endorsed 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 collected such rams or food items under any guise had taken Haram (unlawful) and that the punishment of the Almighty Allah awaited the person. (Quran 71 verse 28)
