Setidaknya NKRI lebih beradab daripada Nigeria karena NKRI pernah dipimpin oleh 
seorang presiden perempuan. Kapan ya presiden perempuan yang lain bermunculan 
lagi di NKRI ini? 

Jangan sampai NKRI (yang plural ini) mundur seperti Nigeria hanya gara-gara ada 
MUI yang ingin memaksakan shariah untuk semua warga negaranya. 

Nigeria: 2011 - Sharia Council Rules Out Woman Governor
Hammed Shittu

27 January 2010

Ilorin — Members of the Kwara State branch of the Supreme Council for Shariah 
yesterday kicked against the purported move by the highly placed politicians in 
the state to impose a female as governor of the state come 2011.

In a statement issued in Ilorin by the council and signed by its state 
coordinator, Alhaji Tijani Edun and made available to newsmen, the council said 
such alleged move was against the principle of Islamic law that forbids female 
leadership in Islam.

According to the statement, "we as members of Supreme Council for Shariah are 
not politicians and not working for the female rivals but making efforts to 
guide Muslims, including politicians and check what is against the wish of 
Allah remains our priority".

The statement said the argument raised by a female contestant in the state that 
people like Bhutto of Pakistan, Queen Elizabeth of England, among others, are 
female leaders who had ruled their various countries was not tenable because 
they are not Islamic states.

Edun added that, any attempt by the female politician to rule the state come 
2011 would serve as a bad precedent and more importantly would destroy the only 
legacy and culture of Islam left behind by Alimi dynasty in the state.

He stressed that, allowing a woman to head the state where more than 80 per 
cent are Muslims would spell a doom for the state and they should all work 
against such move .

Edun noted that, the council was not asking the people to take to violence in 
waging war against the move but they should embark on fervent prayers in order 
to salvage the state from such move.

He, therefore, called on the Muslims to converge at the Yidi praying ground, 
Ilorin on May 30, 2010 to call on God to prevail on the people that would want 
to impose a woman as leader for the state in the next political dispensation.
