The Muslim Ummah of Southwest Nigeria () has expressed support for the South-south Christian Senate presidency agenda.
MUSWEN in a statement by its Executive Secretary Professor Muslih Yahya, stated that it would go a long way to correct the erroneous interpretation of the Muslim-Muslim presidency
The Southwest Muslims umbrella body stated that “this reassuring move is most laudable. This bold move has the propensity of further uniting Nigeria across both tribal and religious lines. It is a very laudable and progressive move that is capable of engendering peace and national cohesion”, it said.
MUSWEN added, “The Muslim Ummah of Southwest Nigeria (MUSWEN), the umbrella body for all Muslim organisations and Muslim interests in the Southwest of Nigeria, hereby lends its support to this Christian South-south Senate presidency agenda.
“We use this opportunity to call on well-meaning Nigerians to support the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and vice president-elect, Sen. Kashim Shettima, in their onerous task of taking Nigeria to greater heights.”
The body stated that “Elections are over; this is the time for national reconciliation. In the spirit of our greater tomorrow, let us all join hands to usher in a new dawn in Nigeria as we inaugurate the new administration of our president-elect and vice president-elect on Monday 29th May 2023.”
