The Muslim Congress (TMC) has challenged Muslims in Ogun State to vote only credible and competent candidates that will protects their interests in the state irrespective of their religious belief.
The Waali of Ogun State chapter of TMC, Dr Ibrahim Ogunkoya in a statement made available to our correspondent in Abeokuta on Wednesday, urged Muslims to vote for either Muslim or Christian candidates who are capable and will be just to the course of Islam in the State.
Ogunkoya said the Muslim community would no longer “be deceived by the so called Muslims who identify with the religion only by name and for electoral benefits.”
He said “In the circumstance where we have Christian candidates who have the capacity to deliver good governance, and adequately show understanding and commitment to the rights of Muslims; definitely we will prefer such candidates to the ones who are Muslim by name and incompetent.
He added that “We use this opportunity to call on all stakeholders in the electoral process to play the game according to its rules with a bid to ensure free, fair, peaceful and violent free elections.”
