Nigerian Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), Wednesday spoke to President Goodluck Jonathan over perceived marginalisation of Muslims in the composition of the on-going National Conference.
The council was led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Saad Mohammed to the meeting with Jonathan at the Presidential Villa.
At the end of the meeting the Sultan failed to talk to State House correspondents on what went down while deliberating with the president, but the Secretary General of NSCIA, Ishaq Oloyede said they were at the Villa to discuss with the president on marginalisation of Muslim at the National Conference.
Islamic organization, Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), had earlier through its Secretary-General, Dr. Khalid Abubakar, stated that “Christians, who by all acceptable records, are not more than 40 per cent of the country’s population, ironically, constitutes 62 per cent of the total delegates at the National Conference.”
This may be the same issue the NSCIA discussed with Jonathan at the closed door meeting which held on Wednesday.
