The Supreme Council on Islamic Sharia in Nigeria (SCSN) has withdrawn its endorsement of President Bola Tinubu’s administration.
Expressing regret for supporting the Muslim-Muslim ticket, the council stated that President Tinubu has marginalized the Muslim community, revealing this during a two-day congress in Abuja dedicated to evaluating the aftermath of the 2023 presidential election.
Secretary-General Nafiu Baba Ahmed shared that the meeting aimed to provide a platform for scholars and sects to voice concerns stemming from the election.
He said, “We were in the vanguard of mobilising scholars, various sects and Islamic groups to bring this government to power. But the scholars and various groups feel neglected, accusing the government of turning its back on Muslims, despite voting in the Muslim-Muslim ticket.”
He mentioned that the assembly allowed Muslims to openly voice their opinions, highlighting that the Tinubu administration failed to fulfill the promises made to secure the majority of Muslim votes.
“We’re bitterly disappointed because we gave our all to bring this government on board, but they’re paying us back this way; Is this the kind of reward we bargained for?
“They’ve elevated opponents of the Muslim-Muslim ticket to mock us, in the same manner they’re frustrating everything that will advance the cause of Islam or anything that is promoting the interest of Muslims.
“We’ve truly regretted that we voted in this government. We’ve looked the president in his face and told him that he has disappointed us, Muslims,” Baba Ahmed added.
