The matter was laid to rest on Thursday as scores of Imams and Alfas across seven states converged on Ibadan and turbaned Adekilekun as the new Wazirul  Muminina amidst colourful celebration with the imprint of the National Board for Arabic and Islamic Studies in Nigeria.

The NBAIS administrative officer, Tajudeen Olaoti described Adekilekun as “an accomplished educationist, author, historian, Islamic scholar and a philanthropist per excellence.”

Waziri, who was recommended by the Osun State League of Imams and Alfas, is the Prime Minister of the Muslims saddled with the responsibility of coordinating their activities intellectually and administratively to ensuring religious harmony with people of other faiths.

Speaking at the turbanning of the Wazirul Muminina, held at the South-West headquarters of the league, Bodija, Ibadan, an Islamic scholar, Prof. Kamil Olosho, described the Wazirul Muminina of Yorubaland as the best choice considering his contributions to the growth and development of Islam.
