The Muslim Ummah of Southwest Nigeria MUSWEN has called on Muslims, particularly of Southwest Nigeria, to show more interest in politics and endeavour to participate more actively in the ongoing democratic process.
MUSWEN, an umbrella body for Muslims in the Southwest, charged them to get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) in preparation for the 2023 general elections.
In a statement issued at the end of its General Purpose Committee (GPC) meeting and signed by the Executive Secretary, Prof. Muslih Yahya, the Ummah said that politics and governance are definitely integral parts of Islam.
MUSWEN argued that Islam is a complete way of life that touches on all aspects of human living no matter how trivial, adding that Muslims, as the vicegerents of Allah on earth are the agents of good change, and therefore should show interest in how the state is being governed.
The Southwest Muslim body, therefore, encouraged its members across Nigeria to participate actively in the political process leading to the 2023 general elections by joining and participating in the activities of various political parties.
“Ensuring that everyone of voting age obtained their voter’s card promptly, accepting nominations for political offices, support the ambition of qualified fellow Muslims to attain political positions and voting individuals of proven integrity into political Offices,” the release, read, in part.”
