Ondo Elections: Yoruba Muslims Threaten Political Revolt by onnenka: 6:15pm On Aug 15, 2016
The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIS) in Ondo State Monday threatened a political revolt should any of the major political parties in the country fail to field a Muslim as Governorship or Deputy Governorship candidate in the forthcoming election in the state.

The Muslim organisation, which lamented the marginalisation of its members in the scheme of things, said it was high time it produced either the governor or deputy of the incumbent political offices in the state.

Alternative to their demand is a revolt by Muslims in the election fixed for November 26 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The Chairman of NSCIS, Imam Habibullah Akinpelu at a press conference addressed at the NUJ Press Centre in Akure, the state capital, said Muslims would use their numerical strength to reject any political party that produces Christian-Christian ticket.


Akinpelu said with a population of 1.5 million and with over 500,000 voting members, they are ready to determine who will succeed the incumbent Dr Olusegun Mimiko as the next governor of the state.

His words: “Muslims today, more than any other group, are poised to give any political party who wishes to listen to this call our block vote. While we would continue our campaign for a Muslim governor in Ondo State with a renewed vigour, we will not compromise our present political height.

“We will dare any political party that will produce a Christian-Christian ticket. Any political party that fly anything less than a balanced ticket may regret its decision; we will aggressively mobilize the consolidated Muslim Ummah of Ondo State for the next election. Muslims in Ondo State are made bold to say that we will not accept anything less than a balanced ticket. We warn that any political arrangement short of balance ticket will be rejected.”

Although the pronouncement by the Islamic council is very stupid. but I'm curious, how did you get the stats for muslim population amongst Yoruba states? Or is this just a wishful stat you just dished out?

Its just a political power play. Muslims do not make up to 30%in that state to be conservative. Ekiti and Ondo states have low Muslim population and, if a power play is talked into play by Muslim groups, they may never have a member in any government.
However, Yoruba don't play religious politics, its just a digression to create awareness's for their groups

While I strongly condemn this line of thinking of the Ondo Muslims, it is important to note that other states in the SW that are Muslim majority especially Osun have always been sensitive to the feelings of non Muslims, so saying Muslims are in minority in Ondo would be foolish
Osun even twice had Christians as both governor and deputy(Oyinlola's administration), despite being a Muslim majority state.

While that shouldn't be the yardstick for voting (and it has never been in the SW before), I think it isn't out of place to accommodate Muslims, maybe the as the deputy.

Nonetheless, I still think it is dumb to vote based on religious lines. I, for instance haven't benefited anything from Buhari, (a fellow Muslim since he assumed office), so what's the fuss about religion here.

Just vote who you feel will serve you better, even if an atheist

Muslims in Ondo State are less 5% of d population of the state and they want to be Governor or Deputy Governor. I don't get that logic. Even Edo State that is in the South-South has more Muslims than Ondo State.

Alhaji olanusi who was Mimiko's former deputy governor was a journey man, not the best qualified for the job but was put there on religions grounds and he was an abject failure as a DG. Let D best man be the number 1 and 2. No religious balancing.

There are Christians in Kebbi, Kwara, Kogi and Nassarawa.

How many governors from those state have been Christians and did you hear CAN spewing rubbish demanding that a Christian must rule?

Dude, go and sit somewhere. Keep following that news and you will see in coming weeks that the grievance is resolved. Look, we Yorubas are members of humanity, we are not immune to the general problems humanity face in structuring society but far above others we posess the intrigues and savviness to work around social problems. In other words, we are far more socially superior and far advanced in evolution and intelligence ttan most, Igbos included.

I cherish your intelligent response. Yoruba has one spirituality and it is Ifa. This is the traditional Yoruba worship and divinity. We didn't have religion in Yorubaland but it was first brought to us through contact with Sufis, Muslim scholars of Mali who were settled in Ilorin on the authority of Alaafin. Next was contact with slave abolitionists who settled Christian missionaries in Abeokuta. Neither Islam nor Christianity is strong enough to change the spirituality of Yoruba. At the core, a Yoruba, muslim or christian, will still have reverence for the divinities of Ifa. So when Christians in Lagos say we need a Christian Governor, I ask....how does the faith of a Governor bring you closer to your God? Alas, what they are asking for is political balance.

So to the muslims of Ondo,were they not fasting under Mimiko, did they not go to Hajj under Mimiko, did Mimiko stop people from congregating in mosque? No. So what's the noise? Their grievance is simple political balance, that's all! Then give it to them.

Ifa ask us to respect the middle way. In other words, maintain balance between the extremities. Yorubas must live true to our spirituality which calls for balance. Representation in our communities and societies and leadership must be balanced.

I support the muslims in their call and hope our leaders will invite them and hear the input for what its worth.

No state in yorubaland has a Muslim majority apart Maybe kwara.Absolutely none. In ondo state, Muslim are less than 7% of the population and Most if them are recent migrants
By the way this useless organisation must be banned everywhere in yorubaland.
