osun-state-governor-rauf-aregbesola-360x270The Osun State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has lampooned the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the state chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for their tough stance against Sukuk –  the Islamic bond raised by the Rauf Aregbesola administration.

APC which made this known in a statement signed by its state Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi, in Osogbo, the Osun capital on Thursday, said that Gov. Aregbesola had been vindicated with the £323m Sukuk raised by Britain which is not an Islamic state.

Oyatomi accused both CAN and the PDP of being mischievous for arguing that Gov. Aregbesola wanted to Islamise Osun State when he raised the bond.

The APC spokesperson argued that with the Sukuk bond, Britain had now become the first non-Muslim Western country to access the Sukuk, adding that the move was aimed at making the European country a leading Islamic finance hub in the Western hemisphere.

The statement read, “Mischievous Peoples Democratic Party politicians and their Christian Association of Nigeria  surrogates in Osun State should hear this: Great Britain has raised a £323m Sukuk – the Islamic bond, which Gov. Rauf Aregbesola also raised for the State of Osun, but which, according to PDP and CAN in the state, is the governor’s tactics to allegedly Islamise Osun”.
