President General, CYMSN, Sheikh AbduRasheed Mayaleke, stated that any attempt to relegate Yoruba Muslims to the background when it comes to the issues of Presidency will be resisted with all means available.
Mayaleke decried that such an effort was undemocratic and injurious.
He, however, warned that serious consequences might loom should the the present Presidential candidate short of a Yoruba Muslim.
