Muslim council in South-West has debunked insinuations that Yoruba Muslims are to vote for Buhari, describing such reports as ?pure lie.?
The Secretary-General of the Muslim council, Mallam Hakeem Adelani, told Sunday Tribune that
?Yoruba Muslims are very objective people who do not vote on religious sentiments. We are not goats or rams that you just march and sell in political market.
?Why should we vote Buhari? Why should we vote for Jonathan? What have both men done for Yoruba people? For us, we have seen Lagos ?Ibadan express road.
If the man can complete that road alone, he has our support.
?Jonathan has done for Yoruba, what our son, Olusegun Obasanjo, failed to do for us. Our main airport in Ibadan is having a new look. Many power plants are in Yorubaland. Our railway is working. Jonathan has done well for the Yoruba,? he said.
?And let me tell you another reason Yoruba Muslims will back Jonathan. His deputy is a Muslim who grew up in Yorubaland and understands us so much.Buhari has picked a Christian from South-
West as his deputy. He has snubbed the 55 per cent Muslims in Yorubaland,? he said.
Adelani disclosed that the council would soon commence a mosque to mosque campaign on why Jonathan is better than Buhari.
