In my actions and conducts, every Ekiti man knows that I am going to relate with you whether you are a Christian or a Muslim.
The General Secretary of the League of Imams and Alfas, Alhaji Abdulrazak Adenipekun, has asked Muslims in Ekiti state to ignore the instruction asking them not to accept Sallah rams from Gov. Ayo Fayose.
Fayose said he will not be dragged into petty political issues.
He said “I won’t allow anybody to drag me into playing politics with religion. What I am doing today is a demonstration of love and support for the Muslims. I am not that kind of a leader who does things with religious interest.”
Adding that “I will do same to Christians at Christmas exactly what I am doing to Muslims today. Ekiti is one, whether you are a Muslim or a Christian and this is the spirit I want all of us to imbibe.”
Fayose also said “In my actions and conducts, every Ekiti man knows that I am going to relate with you whether you are a Christian or a Muslim. The two are the same. I have no preference in either of the two. I am the governor today and if Muslims get there tomorrow, we will all support him.”
“The Chancellor of the Ekiti State University and Alara of Aramoko Ekiti, Oba Olu Adeyemi, is a Muslim. The Special Adviser, Political, Alhaji Ademola Bello, is a Muslim and many that had been appointed into boards, which I won’t like to play up,” the Governor said.
