Muslim community preaches against disharmony



The Muslim Community in Osun State has charged both politicians and electorate in the state to play the game according to the rule.
The President of the Osun State Muslim Community (OSMC), Alhaji Olawuyi Adeleke who made the charge at a press conference marking the commencement of activities for the Hij’rah event in Osogbo, preached violence-free exercises throughout the electioneering period.

He argued that there is nothing good like free, fair and credible election in any given society, and therefore preached harmony, unity and mutual understanding among the political class in the state.

Adeleke also kicked against sectionalism, nepotism, acrimony and other forms of anti-democratic acts that could disturb the forthcoming election in the state.

Speaking on the theme for the Hij’rah 1440 A.H titled “Good Governance, Procedure and Processes: Islamic Perspective,” Adeleke said the Hij’rah event has a lot to do with the coming election, adding that the Muslim Community has been able to enlighten Muslim faithful on the needs for free, fair, and credible election.

He said Hij’rah celebration was to move people from what is bad to what is good and to also obey the teachings of the prophets in the Holy Qur’an, while commending the state governor, Rauf Aregbesola, for choosing a day as a holiday to mark the Hij’rah event, saying that the remembrance will continue even after Aregbesola’s administration.


He also called on electorate to visit any of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) offices close to them to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) and also appealed to security agencies to cooperate with other stakeholders to ensure that the election is free and fair.
