Muslims in the Southwest under the aegis of Muslim Ummah of Southwest Nigeria (MUSWEN) have called on the region’s delegates to the forthcoming National Conference to carry them along because they have an ‘agenda’ at the conference.
Addressing reporters yesterday at the residence of the Aare Musulumi of Yorubaland, Alhaji Abdul-Azeez Arisekola-Alao, the Executive Secretary, MUSWEN, Prof. Dawud Noibi, said: “Our representatives at the National Conference should carry the Muslims along. There is need to carry us along because we also have an agenda at the conference.”
Prof. Noibi affirmed that although the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) would represent Muslims’ interest at the conference, there was need for Muslim leaders in the Southwest to be ably represented.
Leaders from the Southwest present at the news briefing were the Baba Adinni of Lagos State, Sheik Afeez Abu, Secretary of the Muslim Community in Lagos State, Alhaji Saheed Giwa, Chairman of the Muslim Community in Oyo State, Alhaji Kunle Sanni, Alhaji Femi Abass, among others.
