The Council of Imams and Ulama, Kaduna State, has called on politicians and Muslims, in general, to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner free from rancour as the campaigns for the 2023 general elections commence.
The assistant secretary general, Imam Musa Tanimu, and the public relations officer of the council, Dr Abdullahi Maikudi, at a joint press conference, yesterday in Kaduna, also called on citizens to avoid statements that might cause a breach of law and order.
The council said it was working on an agenda for the peaceful conduct of the 2023 polls, which would be made public to the benefit of the entire Ummah.
“Therefore, the council is calling on its members to be vigilant and avoid such temptations, whose sole goal is to disunite and disorganise the permanent and long-term relationship amongst the members.”
Similarly, the Executive Secretary of the Kaduna State Muslim Welfare Agency, Dr Yusuf Arrigasiyyu, has urged Muslims to vote in prominent and dedicated leaders in the 2023 general elections.
Speaking when some Muslim organisations paid him a courtesy visit, he urged them to redouble their efforts in enlightening Muslims to come out and vote for credible leaders.
