2023 Elections: NSCIA Advise INEC, Urges Muslims to Remain Calm and Prayerful

In a statement released on the 7th Sha’ban, 1444 A.H. (28th February, 2023), Prof. Salisu Shehu (Deputy Secretary General) and Arc. Zubairu Haruna Usman-Ugwu (Director of Administration) on behalf of the organisation, the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) cautions political leaders and actors against making provocative and unguarded statements which could drag the country into unnecessary conflict and anarchy.

Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) is the apex Islamic authority in Nigeria established in 1973 to cater for; preserve, protect, promote and advance the interest of Islam and Muslims throughout the country.

NSCIA stated: “While reckless statements from inconsequential individuals can be easily ignored, this is not so of those from respected political and religious leaders. It is important that patriotic and well-meaning Nigerian leaders should support unrelenting adherence to process and procedure in the on-going electoral process. This is because any inclination to unprocedural decision or action at this critical time is a direct call for anarchy which will not yield any positive outcome to the Nation.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is similarly advised by the NSCIA to remain undistracted and committed to its duty until it discharges it to its logical conclusion.

In addition, all Nigerians, particularly Muslims are urged to, no matter the level of provocation from certain quarters, remain calm and prayerful. It prays that “May Almighty Allah keep our country stable and peaceful.”
