The governor noted that as a leader of the state, he cannot act against the law he assented to.
“I also advise you to select another Chairman in the event your request is not granted by the State House of Assembly. I encourage you to continue to give proper direction to the public through their sermons,” he stated.
Earlier, the leader of the delegation and Chief Imam of Minna Central Mosque, Sheikh Isah Fari, commended the governor for setting up the State Bureau for Religious Affairs which has further foster peaceful coexistence between the major religions in the state.
