The Ondo State Muslim Welfare Board has dissociated itself from a communique purportedly issued by the League of Imams and Alfas in the state.

This was contained in a statement issued and signed by Secretary to the Board, Alhaji Omoniyi Mutiu, a copy of which was made available to the Media in Akure.

The statement  quoted Alhaji Omoniyi Mutiu as saying; “We want to hereby state that both the Political head and government workers in the Board are solidly behind the administration of Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa and  are undoubtedly committed to its success.”

The statement further reads; “We wish to state unequivocally that neither the board chairman, Alhaji Sikrullah Adams Chandy nor any of members of staff of the Board sat at the meeting .

“We wish to state that the privilege accorded the League of Imams & Alfas was to honour them being the custodian of Islam in Ondo state and perhaps, not the first time of according them such opportunity.

“Permit us to quickly state that the permission sought from the Board was to discuss the forthcoming Ramadan fasting .

“And contrary to the communique, the resolution of the Imams & Alfas according to  participants was to lobby the state government to consider Muslim politicians and technocrats for appointments and never to confront or take any contrary step(s).

“We regret any inconveniences that this development might have caused the state government”, the statement concluded.
