27th April, 2024



The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has called on all stakeholders in the North/South-West accord which produced the current Muslim-Muslim ticket to ensure its preservation. The Islamic human rights organization spoke on Saturday, 27th April, 2024 through its Founder and Executive Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola.

The full statement reads:

“Recent developments in the political arena tend to indicate cracks in the Muslim-Muslim ticket camp. The situation requires political sagacity and emotional maturity.

“MURIC wishes to reiterate that the Muslim-Muslim ticket is the best thing ever to happen in the Nigerian political history since 1966 as it constitutes a strong and reassuring handshake across the Niger. There is no other existing alliance in the current political architecture that guarantees the unity and indivisibility of Nigeria better than this.

“We remind the major stakeholders in the accord to talk less, act with caution and continue to work for the success of the Tinubu/Shettima administration. They must not forget that the anti-Muslim-Muslim ticket camp remains active, divisive, vengeful and lethal. The alliance must therefore avoid collateral damages.

“We appeal to major actors both at state and national levels to desist from taking actions or making statements capable of jeopardizing the chances of the handshake across the Niger in 2027 or likely to expose any of the main actors to unnecessary distraction and dissipation of energy.”
