Governor Kayode Fayemi Lands In Big Trouble With Angry Muslims In Ekiti State, Receives Immediate Marching Order   

The National Council of Muslim Youth Organisations, NACOMYO, has faulted the first appointments made by the newly-inaugurated Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi.

The religious youth group, said that the appointments were lopsided, and totally marginalised the Muslim community in Ekiti State.

The Organisation, stated this during a massive protest, which held at the Central Mosque, Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, on Thursday.

The Coordinator of the NACOMYO in the State, Tajudeen Olutope Ahmed, pointed out that excluding Muslims from the first three appointments announced by the Governor, was “shocking and highly disturbing to all Muslims in the State.”

Post-Nigeria recalls, that Fayemi had announced the appointments of Abiodun Oyebanji, as the Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Biodun Omoleye, as Chief of Staff, and Yinka Oyebode, as his Chief Press Secretary.

The NACOMYO, maintained that Muslims in the State constitute about 40 percent of the population, adding that, the Governor was given their total support by voting massively for him during the Governorship polls.

They said: “The exclusion of Muslims from the entire membership of the core principal officers of this administration, is therefore worrisome, unjust, condemnable, and unacceptable. We see it as a calculated attempt to exclude Muslims from the fundamental aspect of decision making process in Ekiti State.

“The exclusion of the Muslims in this regard, is a violation of the fundamental objectives and directive principles of state policy, as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria (as amended).

“The exclusion of Muslims from the core principal appointments of Dr. John Kayode Fayemi, is a derogation of the motto of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as provided in Section 15 (1) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended). Rather than projecting ‘Unity and Faith, Peace and Progress’; the recent appointments made by the government will breed disunity, commotion, and backwardness.

“We also call on the Governor, to ensure inclusion of Muslims in all appointments to be made in future, at both State and Local Government levels. This will pave the way for the reign of justice, equity, and peace in the State.”
