ABYEI, 29 July 2015[Gurtong]-The Information Minister in the Abyei Special Administrative Area, Aloor Dou Al Beit said the request came when government officials shared dinner with Muslims at Agok during the celebrations of Eid two weeks ago.

Aloor said the request was made to the Commissioner of Rumamer County who later presented it to the council of Minister so it can be debated upon.

“Yes during the Rhamadan, when the government officials shared a special dinner with the Muslim community in Abyei during celebration at Agok. Of course most of the Muslims come from the region, they came up with the request for the Rumamer County and the County authority pushed it to the Council of Ministers to approve. The Council of Ministers has not yet discussed the matter” he said.

Aloor said he was optimistic that the council will approve the Muslim Community’s request to construct a mosque in the region.

He said that the Muslim community has the right to worship God just like any other denomination in the area.
