In a statement released on Monday, the group accused the governor of marginalizing and oppressing Muslims in the state.

Governor Adeleke submitted the list of nominees to the Osun House of Assembly on Friday, seven months after assuming office. The list comprised twenty-five individuals, including two members from the previous administration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola, namely Kolapo Alimi and Biyi Odunlade.

MURIC’s Executive Director, Ishaq Akintola, signed the statement, criticizing the religious composition of Adeleke’s nominees. According to the group, the list consists of seventeen Christians and only seven Muslims, indicating a significant bias against the Muslim community.

“We condemn this wanton blockage of privileges that should go to Muslims,” stated the press release. MURIC accused Governor Adeleke of engaging in deceptive tactics, marginalizing Muslims in the state and preventing them from accessing their fair share of government positions and opportunities.

The statement further added, “By deceiving Muslims in the state and engaging in spiritual hide and seek, Governor Adeleke has exhibited qualities short in honour and dignity but egregiously long in infamy and bohemianism. The goal of Adeleke’s deception is for the perpetuation of the marginalization, shortchanging, and oppression of Muslims in Osun state.”

“Adeleke is a secret agent of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN). Like the legendary James Bond, a.k.a. 007 who had the licence to kill. Adeleke has now acquired the licence to oppress Osun Muslims by becoming governor of the state.

“For the avoidance of doubts, we are solidly for meritocracy but the latter does not reside in Christendom alone. Eminently qualified Muslims abound in large numbers for those who seek fairness and equity. Gone are those days when anyone can use wool to cover the eyes of Muslims.”
